Log

I suspect fellow judge Joe Lentol would agree with me that selecting this year’s winners of the District Dog Halloween Costume Contest was very tough indeed! There were so many great entries. I would like to thank everyone who came out today. I hope you had as much as I had! Now, if you do not mind dear readers I am off to enjoy my evening for a bit. You can look forward to a slide show tomorrow!

From The New York Shitty Photo Pool, Part II: Live From The Trash Corral

This Is Just Wrong...

Lisacat (who took the above photograph) opines:

Since when are “luxury” condo developers allowed to erect a monstrosity like this in front of their crappy buildings for the rest of us to deal with? And this photo is on a good day when it’s not spilling over and out of the fence!

While arguably superior to the Viridian’s use of Bloomberg’s trees as trash repositories I too have to wonder about the legality of this set-up. Anyone out there have the 411 on whether or not this act of space piracy is legal? If so, please share via comments or email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com.

Your identity will remain anonymous if you so desire.

Lost & Found On Monitor Street

Given these fliers were found literally a block apart on Monitor Street I have to wonder if the kitty in question is one and the same. Since no gender is given on the latter flier there’s no way of knowing for certain. Nonetheless, if you are missing a cat— or happen to know who this kitty belongs to— please contact his (her?) good Samaritan at the above-listed telephone number.

Thanks!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Stolen Bike

This item comes from a lady named Molly. She writes:

hey miss heather,
love your blog and hope that you could help me add some eyes to the search for my stolen bike.

sometime between 10 p.m. last night and 8 a.m. this morning, my bike was stolen. it was locked on the gate in front of my apartment on monitor between nassau and driggs. cable lock was cut clean through.

now here’s the thing. this bike is small. like really small. anyone that is over 5’2″ won’t be able to ride it comfortably. it’s also orange. really orange. it has orange handle bar tape and an old vintage schwinn speedometer on the handle bars.  it’s also very heavy. i have attached a photo of the bike… if you see someone… with a small orange bike, please contact me via email.

hope some nice greenpointers can help me out! i love this bike!

If anyone has seen this bike or knows of its whereabouts please contact Molly via email at mollsrawks (at) gmail (dot) com

Thanks!

New York Shitty Photos Du Jour: Live From McGolrick Park

I wasn’t able to hang around and watch the bathtub races (as conducted by the Lions Club) but at the very least I saw my first (and to date only) intercontinental ballistic bathtub and made the acquaintance of Philip Ras*, the gent who was kind enough to give me the 411 about those memorial plaques at 80 Franklin Street!

*It was a pleasure meeting you! You can see Philip’s photographs of last year’s race by clicking here. Check ’em out!

McGolrick Park

Ryan Murphy (who took the above photograph) muses:

Best little park in NYC, with the awkwardest name. I’m going to miss having it a block away.
