Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: On The Waterfront

November 19, 2012 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

Needing a break from the rigors of moving, this morning yours truly decided a walk on our waterfront was in order. When I availed myself of the “V.I.P. Entrance” (as seen above) to the Java Street pop-up park I had the eerie feeling I was not alone. Sure enough, I looked to my left and discerned my instincts were spot-on.

Is that man doing what I think he is doing?

I asked myself. Sure enough, he was.

Hey, at least he had the decency to employ a water bottle as a receptacle as opposed to simply letting it rip. In any case and in closing, this is as good an opportunity as any to note that I have received word from the fine folks at the East River Ferry that after negotiations with the owner of the pier (and this property) they will be implementing a number of wonderful improvements to the pier proper and the surrounding environs. This includes addressing security issues as manifest with the “VIP entrance”, providing a winter shelter for ferry goers and much, much more. Now that’s some much-needed good news!

Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists please take note some of the traffic and crosswalk signals at McGuinness Boulevard (such as this one at Java Street) are not working. Be safe and look out for each other, Greenpointers!

Hurricane Sandy memories, Greenpoint, Brooklyn 10–29–2012

This photos was taken today on Java Street by WarmSleepy. It should be noted the East River has since risen and water is now making its way along Java Street. Be safe fellow Greenpointers and stay away from the waterfront. It has been evacuated for a reason!

New York Shitty Street Seating Du Jour: Special Waterfront/Non-Materialistic Lounge Suite* Edition

As many of my fellow north ‘Pointers can attest, we have a dearth of public space on our waterfront. For this reason our very own Open Space Alliance teamed up with a developer and brought us the Java Street Pop-up Park. This morning I decided to swing by and see how it was faring. If the above photograph (of what appears to be no less than a La-Z-Boy sofa) is any indication, someone has made himself (?) quite comfortable. Follows are a few more shots from my sojourn. Enjoy!
