Looks like East River State Park got some new trees.

Happy Labor Day From New York Shitty!

The sun’s out, the weather is pleasantly mild. I cannot think of a better place to while away this Labor Day than a nice walk along the Greenpoint’s waterfront.

Or not. A half-eaten sandwich and a dead rat covered with flies are but a fraction of the delights which await you if you decide to visit Greenpoint’s waterfront.

detritus

Is it detritus you seek? Kent Avenue has it in spades!

But if you’re looking for a little Greenpoint greenery you’ll be hard-pressed to find it anywhere else.

Who needs parks when we have this?

cup

Although a discarded styrofoam cup sort of defeats the message. You know, after all this walking and tea quaffing I need to go to the bathroom. Methinks I will head over to Kent Street.

It looks like they have locked up the Econoheads. Damn.

community

Oh wait, here’s a toilet…

bathroom

and it is even appointed with a sink— very nice! On August 13, 2009 The Brooklyn Paper published an article entitled “Gates of Wrath”. Follow are a couple of quotes from this tome.

Greenpoint continues to have virtually no access to its waterfront and [proposed] parks are still years away from completion… These street ends, once fully open, accessible, and clean, will provide the community with three desperately needed waterfront havens. — David Yassky, City Councilman* for the 33rd District & Candidate For City Comptroller

“It might just be a crumbling street end, but people are eager to get down there and be by the water. — Stephanie Thayer, Parks Employee and Executive Director For Open Space Alliance North Brooklyn.

Only the best for Greenpoint.

TODAY: Stoop Sale Selections

For those of you who are staying home this holiday weekend (and want to do a little shopping on the cheap) here are a few stoop sales to consider.

150 Milton Street

150milton

Although the prospect of parsing through used (?) bathing suits skeeves me out to no end books and CDs are always on my shopping list. Especially if they’re cheap!

Yard Sale #1
September 5 & 6, 2009 from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
150 Milton Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222

208 Huron Street

208huron

This one is for early risers only. Given that the wares advertised are for (small) children those of you who might be interested will probably be up and about anyway.

Yard Sale #2
September 5 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
208 Huron Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222

And last— but hardly least— today is the last day of this loft sale in Williamsburg.

Now that the holiday weekend is kicking off in earnest I will probably keep the posting for the next four days on the light side. However, I couldn’t resist passing along this loft sale for any and all who might have bargain-hunting on his (or her) itinerary.

We’re moving to the west coast on Tuesday and selling the contents of out loft space. Wondering if this could this be of interest to you or your readership?
Beautiful items at really good prices.

Would you post this on the blog for tomorrow and Saturday? I’m sorry to ask, I’m sure you get requests all the time – we don’t have any time to take it all
or give out on consignment, and must let it go! And fast!

Have a great weekend and come by if you’re in the neighborhood!

No problem— and good luck with your big move!

Now that it is September I suppose summer is officially over. It certainly didn’t feel that way to yours truly today. The weather was so deliciously nice I did something I rarely, if ever, do: absolutely nothing. On that note I will conclude today’s lite offerings with some summery street art from Williamsburg. Enjoy!

When I found this delightful item from Rheingold Room (entitled “Park Your TV”) not only did it give me a much needed chuckle but it also reminded me that it has been awhile since I have hit you with some of north Brooklyn’s finest street furniture. Follows is a selection of my favorite finds. Enjoy!
