New York Shitty Street Seating Du Jour: Street Sleeper

When I stumbled upon this ad hoc sofa/sleeper at the intersection of Norman Avenue and Humboldt Street I couldn’t stop myself from laughing. Then I glance to left and in so doing began the fully grasp the Greenpoint glory in front of me.

The person(s) responsible for this street sleeper didn’t just stick a mattress in an empty sofa bed: they first divested the sofa bed of its contents and then proceeded to stuff the mattress inside of it. Brilliant, simply brilliant!

This oldie but goody dates from 2007 (and the Gowanus Lounge) but I could not resist reposting it here because it is (still) the most AWESOME pumpkin carving arrangement I have ever seen. Let us now proceed to eat, drink and be very scary on this— yours truly’s very favorite day of the year— Garden Spotters!

I was regrettably unable to get a full shot of this piece due to a slew of parked cars. Head over to Humboldt Street just north of Norman Avenue and see it for yourself!

Spotted On Humboldt Street: A Cry For Help

October 11, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11211, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn 

It was a windy night on October 7th, and I stupidly left the cushions on my terrace furniture, and awoke to discover that one has made his escape! Have you seen him? I have drawn a likeness below. If you find in it, I can reward you with a cocktail on the terrace on said cushion, or you can just leave it as 480 Humboldt if you are sick of it taking up space on your roof, sidewalk, stoop, or wherever it had managed to end up. I would really appreciate it.

New York Shitty analysis:

  1. I cannot shake the feeling the chap who created this flier is seeking something more than merely getting his cushion back.
  2. Yes, a man most certainly created this flier.

P.S.: Further down the street I learned he has a taker!
