Freeman Street

As promised follows are some highlights from my sojourn around north ‘Point this afternoon. Aside from the two above-depicted houses (which can be found on Freeman Street between Manhattan Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard and are lacking electricity) the damage was minimal. Rather, it would appear that the Garden Spot has (inasmuch as is possible) regained its sense of normalcy. As you will see we are enjoying our (scant) public spaces, the El Blablazo tree has survived; some hapless soul was (is?) awaiting access to the Box House Hotel and I even met a dog named “Kitty”. While not depicted, Jerzy (AKA: the chap who lives in a truck on Franklin Street), is safe and sound— if quite busy! I suspect he feels the same way we all do: it’s nice to have our neighborhood— replete in all its glorious eccentricity— back. On that note and without further ado, enjoy!

Rescued From McCarren Park: Peapod

The Vagina Tree may no longer be with us, but this little fellow (and I have been assured Peapod is a he!)— a baby squirrel who has been separated from his home— stands a fighting chance thanks to a very observant Miss Mousey Brown!

UPDATE, August 30, 2011: I have word that Peapod has been safety returned to his family! Miss Mousey Brown writes:

He’s good. When I went by his nest yesterday, his mom hopped right to it when he gave out an “I’m hungry” squeak. The warm sunny day was good. The nest is probably dry again. All is well.

When encountered this despondent pup, I could not help but wonder why the sad face. I mean, Irene was more “talk” than action.  Then I turned around— and the answer became obvious:

Irene took out his favorite tree!

I just arrived home from a walk around north ‘Point to discover a bevy of photographic goodness in my inbox! The above photos come courtesy of a lass named Margot Spindelman, who writes:

unfortunately didn’t have my camera with me at 8am, when crazy boyfriend insisted we walk to the creek.

You can look forward to photos from yours truly in a bit— so check back!
