New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: Seasons Greetings From Morgan Avenue

The above image goes out to the Department of Sanitation and the Department of Transportation— who, in their Solomon-like wisdom— decided building a snow fort on Vandervoort Avenue was a sterling idea. The end result was not only obstructed truck traffic from Beadel Street to Maspeth Avenue, but also a clusterfuck of Biblical proportions on Morgan Avenue. NOTE: the following photographs and video footage were shot today at 1:00 p.m.

You can read more about this fiasco at the New York Daily News.

Quicklink: Inside The Greenpoint Hospital

I was supposed to swing by this very place today. Regrettably I had to decide against doing so: I simply did (and do) not feel up to it. Luckily my colleague over at Nathan Kensinger Photography has enabled me to go there without even having to leave my jammies. Do give this blog post (from which the image to the left hails) a read. It’s seriously good stuff!

TOMORROW: Arts@Renaissance

Some of you might recall that in May I took a tour of the basement at the old Outpatient Annex at the Greenpoint Hospital. It was being rehabilitated and an inaugural art exhibition was planned for the space. Well folks, this is it! Not only do they have a curated show of artwork by north Brooklyn artists for our delectation but three evenings of live performances to boot! You can peruse a full itinerary of the opening festivities by clicking here. Check it out!

New York Shitty Slide Show Du Jour: Underneath The Greenpoint Hospital

(Or more accurately: its Outpatient Annex.)

As I mentioned in this post the folks at St. Nick’s are having an open call for artists. Well, as promised today I took a tour of the space they are converting into an art and performance space. All things said it is very much a work in progress. Having just completed asbestos abatement, they can now move forward finishing the space. This is not to suggest that one cannot see the potential: you can. The main area would be perfect as a performance or installation space, to cite just one example. In addition, it was really neat to poke around the labyrinth of rooms, closets and antechambers in their pre-rehabilitated state. If you are into urban decay you are going to love this photo set. Enjoy!

Anyone interested in proposing an on-site installation or performance, wants to submit work for their open call or simply has questions about this space should contact Laura McLelland @ lmclelland (at) stnicksalliance (dot) org. Oh yeah, be sure to read the submission specs and requirements first!
