It would appear instead of erecting “Kent Av” signs on each block of Kent Street (which while incompetent, would at least be consistent), the Department of Transportation got this corner correct!

They have been “fixed”! Mind you, the signs were (apparently) in need of replacing in the first place did their job quite well. Rather, this was (and is) a matter of typography, geography, bureaucracy and incompetence. Please excuse me if I am being redundant.

Whoops.

P.S.: Props go out to Ann Kansfield of the Greenpoint Reformed Church for bringing this gem to my attention.  I have word that 311 has been called about this, lest you are wondering.

Live From Greenpoint: The U.S.S. Monitor Parade!

After the ceremony

Civil Awar meets digital

On The Waterfront

Llamas and gas tanks

As the presence of llamas would suggest, today’s U.S.S. Monitor-related merrymaking had more than a few surprises. Excellent speeches were given by all; but I was especially fond of the ones given by our City Councilman, Steve Levin, and our 50th District Democratic State Committeeman Lincoln Restler. The llamas, on the other hand, seemed non-plussed by this, the unanticipated shower at the behest of a FDNY boat and the rifle salute which concluded today’s ceremony. Without further ado here is footage from today’s parade and the following ceremony at the site of the much-anticipated Greenpoint Monitor Museum on Bushwick Inlet.

The Parade Begins!
