Greenpoint Photos du Jour: Jeszcze! Jeszcze! Jeszche!

The squirrels were were putting on quite a show yesterday at McGolrick Park. So much so a young girl in the care of (who I presume to be) her grandmother could not refrain from commenting about it. Which brings me to the title of this post. It was this word she kept gleefully shouting over and over: jesczche. I learned from her grandmother this means “around” in Polish. It is pronounced (more or less) how you say “milk” in Spanish: leche.

P.S.: Special thanks go out the my favorite employee at Stokrotka for assisting me with the spelling. She has become my unwitting (but enthusiastic) tutor when I purchase bath salts!

From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: Origami at McGolrick Park?

This item (and the above photograph) comes courtesy of a very nice lady named Brooke. She writes:

Hi Miss Heather!

I was wondering if you have seen or know anything about this lovely origami crane installation in our hood @ McGolrick? My roommate and I have been admiring them for a couple weeks and we’re so curious who’s behind it!

If I had to hazard a guess I’d say that this is either the handiwork of NBPacArt or students at P.S. 110 (which is located across the street) If anyone reading this has the 411 about this rather nifty piece of public art please share via comments or email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Thanks!

Noticed quite a few rounds of fireworks last night in the vicinity of McGolrick park. My canine companion and volunteer firefighter, Piglet, wanted to make sure the fire was out. Thanks for keeping us safe, Piglet!

NICE.

Holy Bible and rusty stroller. McGolrick Park, corner of Nassau and Monitor 2/19/11

Hollychrome (who brought the above but of Greenpoint goodness  to my attention) writes:

I thought you might enjoy this little charmer of a treasure that I found at the Nassau/Monitor corner of McGolrick park yesterday morning. The abandoned stroller was pretty rusty but the Bible seemed in fairly good shape. Go figure.

Nice!
