Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Laundry Day

Panty Rainbow! nys

In New York City “privacy” is a relative thing. CASE IN POINT: this prayer flag-esque arrangement of panties which tickled my fancy. I imagine for the next week or so when I knock around the neighborhood I will be wondering who the festively-pantied person is. Simple pleasures, folks…

As with most things I see while walking around my community’s sidewalks, I wonder about the story behind them. I have no idea what this piece of feral fashion’s was (as spied today on Lorimer Street), but I bet it was a pretty good one!

The Word On The Street: Oh Sh*t!



As spotted today on North 8th Street. Note the men’s dress shirt which has been repurposed as toilet paper. Yes sir: north Brooklyn is looking more and more like the East Village/Lower East Side every day!

Reader Comment Du Jour: Lose Something?

Yesterday I featured an automatic teller machine from the East Village whose contents were not only absconded, but a citizen (and presumably a witness to this act of theft) took  the added trouble of noting the make and model of the perp’s motor vehicle (as seen at left). Today a new development in this curious case has been brought to my attention. Panasonicyouth writes:

I took the same picture a few days ago, only there was a pair of underwear sitting there.

I for can only hope this pair of rather substantial (and torn) pair of manties is the thief’s (the BVD Bandit’s???) calling card. You can view this very special urban artifact with your own eyes by clicking here. Seeing is truly believing!
