Dear Friends and Neighbors,

This *Sunday is the 12th Annual Greenpoint Memorial Day Parade*! This is a special opportunity for everyone in our community to thank our neighborhood veterans for their service. It means a great deal to our veterans to have Greenpointers line the streets and cheer them on along the parade route. The parade is quintessentially Greenpoint with school marching bands and other local attractions. The 2012 Grand Marshal is Lorraine Bizinski

*Greenpoint Memorial Day Parade Schedule*

New York Shitty Day Ender: Toy Soldiers

Rounding out today’s, Memorial Day’s posts I leave you with these images of some soldiers I found while knocking around Williamsburg and link from my buddy (and fellow Greenpointer) Brooklyn Imbecile. Read it. Perhaps I am being sanguine, but it has been a pleasure to see how his content is evolving!

LAST GASP: Apologies

The McCarren Park womens “comfort station” is looking a little more than worse for wear after this holiday weekend.* Special thanks goes out to Laura Hofmann for sharing this photographic evidence of what happens when you have a Parks Administrator who is more interested in throwing concerts than effecting actual, positive change in our public parks.

*Apparently this public lavatory has been in the above-depicted state of disrepair since Saturday, May 29, 2010. In the morning. (see comments) For those of you keeping count this makes three days.
