Welcome To Greenpoint

As taken today, September 29, 2013 one block away from the India Street Pier.

Thought of the day: if the leaders of our community want to attract tourists, perhaps they should crackdown on speculators/developers who do not maintain their properties, illegally occupy the sidewalk and/or street with their “accoutrements”*, etc.? Is it just me or are our electeds sort of missing the forest for the trees here?

*This a nice way of saying shit.

A fellow we’ll call “B” writes:

Not sure if you’ll find this interesting. A younger citizen on our block (Manhattan + McGuinness) has angered an older citizen with his scooter-based junk pile / roving artwork.

The back and forth is hard to read in the photo. It reads, “This is not a bike rack. You are not a resident at this building. Any damage to your bike is at your own risk.”

Response: “Of course. This is a public space, meaning a space for the public. So I am not sure what the problem is. Anyone who would do damage, I feel really bad for and sincerely hope they can eventually be in the present moment + make peace with their demons.”

Enjoy.

My prognostication: this is not going to end well.
