Williamsburg Photo du Jour: Still There!

On December 8, 2011 I wrote:

The “ladybug” was installed October 13th. As of the writing of this post (okay, Monday afternoon), I have no idea whether she is still there or not. This is because the lavatory in question was locked…

Well, this morning I swung by Jamie Campiz Playground. Not only am I pleased as punch to announce the comfort stations were open…

but the ladybug is faring just fine!

Manhole Patrol: 11/14/2011

While my site has been eerily quiet on the subject the past few days I can assure you, gentle readers, I have been keeping a vigilant watch over our community’s plundered manholes access covers. Without further ado, here are a few more!

McGuinness Boulevard, between Greenpoint Avenue and Calyer Street, East Side

I appear to have missed these two the first time around. For those of you keeping count, this make twelve such missing covers on McGuinness Boulevard.

Marcy Avenue at Hope Street, 11211

Representing Williamsburg, we have this specimen which hails a mere hop-skip from the entrance to the Brooklyn Queens Expressway! And getting back to unfinished business…

49 Noble Street (between West and Franklin Street)

Noble btwn Franklin and West, not sure if you got this one already. another one down the block filled with water but my photo didn’t come out!

Duly noted! What’s more I felt a fit of artistic inspiration just down the block. More specifically: I decided to put the “man” back in manhole!

In closing, I’d like to note that this phenomenon (the commandeering of public property for sale as scrap) has not gone unnoticed by a colleague of mine in Queens. In fact, today he authored a blog post of his own on the subject. Give it a read!

While no photograph accompanies this flier (which hails from Marcy Avenue at South 2nd Street), the copy is detailed enough. If you know who this porcine pussy belongs to— or perhaps would like to make him (her) your own, please contact his/her good Samaritan at the above-listed telephone number. Thanks!
