I encountered the above tableau on Huron Street while taking Ma and Pa Heather out to dinner this evening. They depart our fair city tomorrow, thus I was very pleased that they got to behold some bona fide Garden Spot magic before their departure. Methinks they were not as enamored of my find as I was. So much for “taste”. Anyway, the fellows sitting nearby (on stools, milk crates, etc.— those who reside on or near Manhattan Avenue between Huron and India will know exactly about whom I write) told me I was the sixth person they had seen photograph this exquisite piece of Greenpoint glory. No surprise there…

So today I spent (and continue to spend) cleaning Chez Shitty. We party hard here, I can assure you. In any case earlier this evening I popped out to get a few things. Let’s just say I, clad in flip flops, dirty jeans and a hoodie, felt like a real schlump when I beheld this lady’s get-up.

I inquired as to her head gear. This she made herself. It was so lovely, especially when paired with the scarf (which I have seen for sale at the Polonia Bookstore), I asked her if I could take a photo. As you can see, she gladly obliged. Methinks I’ll have to dust off some fake flowers, my hot glue gun and make my own. In the meantime: Bravo!

This festively fettled stop sign, while probably not fully appreciated by to whom it is dedicated, it was certainly the source of many smiles of passersby— including myself. Happy Birthday, neighbor!

Found this wonderful draft on Huron Street. Thought you might enjoy it.

Viva Greenpoint.

Although not on par with this, it does have a certain je ne sais quoi. Happy Friday!
