The aftermath of a performance art project or (yet more) commentary about the Garden Spot’s most (in)famous poultry slaughterhouse? I’ll leave it to you, dear readers, to make the call!

New York Shitty Day Ender: When Worlds Collide

The proceedings were rather lively at this evening’s 94th Precinct Community Council meeting. Naturally I shot footage and have commenced uploading it. (TEASER: Phyllis was in particularly interesting form.) In the meantime I want to leave you with something I spied before the aforementioned event. A moving sale of such a special (and distinctly Greenpoint) caliber it deserves a post of its own. Here it is.

The above photograph does not do the strobe light (which was quite an attention getter) justice. Fortunately that’s why god invented video. Enjoy!

If anyone out there is looking for a condominium on Greenpoint Avenue methinks one will be hitting the market. Soon.

Hello Here is a photo of the slurry truck making the daily pickup from the local slaughter house. I took it a while ago, but this neighborhood gem knows no season.

He goes on to opine:

…if awesome internet commenters are ever to outrage about people living next to a slaughter house, I’d like to counter and say; I don’t care, dead chickens are quiet neighbors.

You know, he makes a very good point!

David writes in an email entitled “About the amazing chicken slaughter house on Greenpoint Avenue”:

Hello Heather,

I am emailing you because I live next to the chicken slaughter house (the one next door to the Robert Scarano’s “Canvas Condominiums” and on which someone has thoughtfully inscribed “This Place Stinks”— Ed. Note) and the sidewalk in front of it has been so disgusting in the last few days that it makes me want to puke every morning on my way to work: frozen blood, guts and other feathers … and I am not even talking about that smell.

I am planning to take a picture tonight if it’s not too dark or tomorrow morning.

Anyway, I was wondering if you think I should call 311 to complain or is it hopeless? I am sure I am not the only one in this situation.

Let me know what you think.

As it would happen I passed this establishment last Saturday. It smelled so bad I was gasping for air…

FROM ACROSS THE STREET! Anyone have any advice/anecdotes about this establishment to share with David? If so, please share them in the comments section.
