From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: The Slaughter Truck

I’m not really sure what this means Miss Heather, but this was seen on Leonard between Norman and Meserole Nassau Avenue, and is probably still there if you’re out and about in the hood.  As of a few days ago they hadn’t put one of those spiteful sticker signs all over his windows.  Maybe the city folks do take pity once in awhile.

Sure enough, when I walked by this afternoon it was still there.

The missives alerting the local constabulary of this truck’s distress were plentiful.

And nary a parking ticket was to be found.

Who says civil servants don’t have a heart? Then again, we are talking about a motor vehicle known as the “Slaughter Truck”.

Stuff such as this, dear readers, is why they will have to take me out of this neighborhood feet first.

Spotted On Leonard Street: DIY

Yours truly has lived in Greenpoint for over ten years now. Over the past decade I have seen of number of interesting things here. And each and every time I think I cannot possibly see anything else in the way of weirdness I am proven wrong. CASE IN POINT: something I saw on Leonard Street this afternoon.

What initially caught my attention was the industrial sewing machine. Why it is there is anyone’s guess. Greenpointers get pretty imaginative when it comes to garden decor. Then I noticed the flashlight hanging on the front door and no less than three hand-written notes. We’ll start with the one on the far right.

A rather detailed set of instructions…

which continue in the window to the left!

New York Shitty analysis: my knee jerk reaction to this “set up” was as follows;

Wouldn’t just having visiting parties call you using their cell phones be easier?

But then I thought the better of it. This arrangement is much more interesting— and dare I say a wee bit kinky!

P.S.: Why can’t I get the bathtub scene from The Shining out of my head after seeing this?
