I am enjoying you follow the Argentos and their shady dealings. They drive me crazy because they get all of this government money and none of the rules apply to them. Have you noticed that Monitor St between Greenpoint ave and Norman ave is closed? The Argentos are building 7 sound stages on Kingsland Ave which the back is on Monitor. Since last year that street is closed and I cannot see any reason why except that it is being treated like a personal parking lot. Because it is closed the traffic on Greenpoint Avenue gets backed up especially at rush hour. I do not see any signs explaining why it should be closed either.
Have you noticed this?

I cannot honestly say I have. However, I opted to swing by today and see what’s up. Follows is a slideshow of my findings. Enjoy!

In closing, I decided to swing by Luna Lighting (which, as we have learned, was busted by the Business Integrity Commission for operating an illegal trade waste business). The following photo pretty much says it all.

Streets, sidewalks, who needs them when jobs are being created? Or so it is said by those who have been beneficiaries of the Argento’s largesse. Let this be a reminder folks that the “rules” apply to some folks more than others…

New York Shitty Day Ender: Armed Robbery On Jewel Street?

As the lack of postage today probably suggests, today I kicked back and took it easy. I am glad I did, because it helped to be well rested while reading the following email (entitled “Mugging with guns alert in Greenpoint”). Its contents are pretty disturbing:

My friend just sent me this email today, I thought to forward it to you as a public announcement. Amanda, my friend and neighbor, and I live on Jewel Street, between Meserole and Norman.

Thanks,

Yikes!

New York Shitty Day Starter: The United Colors Of Greenpoint

Every so often I like to create assignments for myself. This, my latest one, came the way they usually do: via a flight of fancy. One day I wondered to myself if Greenpoint, the Garden Spot of the Universe— and patron par excellence to the aluminum siding industry— sported a rainbow assortment of siding products. What you have just seen, dear readers, is the result of one month’s worth of research. There is only one conclusion that can be drawn from the copious amount photographic evidence/data I have collected: yes!
