From The New York Shitty Inbox: Drunk Driving on Nassau Avenue?

A person we’ll call “A” writes yesterday, March 5th, at 6:45 p.m.:

Hey,

There was just a loud collision at the corner of Humboldt and Nassau – lots of witnesses. A clearly intoxicated driver rear ended another car. The driver was stumbling and slurring his words. Yelling at the other driver not to call the cops. And that he would give him $1000 if he just didn’t call the cops. I left because it was freezing and looked like it might get physical. Luckily it looked the driver of the first car was definitely calling the cops, as well as a couple other witnesses. And there was already a very long line of traffic backed up on Humboldt.

Anyway I’m writing because its really scary that someone was driving that drunk in our neighborhood at 6:30 pm (not that its ever not scary.)

With the horrible accident with the delivery man from Chinese Musician just a few months ago this is starting to be an epidemic… If you find anything out about this, please post. I hope the cops were called. I tried to remember the plate number but forgot – NY plates though.

I contacted the head of the 94th, D.I. Hurson and here’s what he had to say:

Yes, we got him.

Hey,

Sorry to bog down your inbox with another missing-cat email, but I have to do all I can to try to get my kitty back. She escaped our apartment after a raccoon ripped a hole in the window screen. We live on Kingsland Ave. between Nassau and Driggs, and I think she must be hiding close by. She was formerly-feral, so might run if approached quickly or with lots of noise. I’m sure she’s super scared, but she’s not at all aggressive. She’s a medium-sized tortoiseshell, so mostly black with brown and cream flecks (short hair) and greenish-yellow eyes. I’m attaching a photo. She sat on my lap for the first time a few weeks ago in the year since I’ve had her, and I’m so sad that she’s gone now that she’s finally started to trust us.

I can be contacted 24/7 at 347.634.5073

If you happen to see Coco— or know of her whereabouts— please say something to M. I have been told string and wet food are the way to her heart. Thanks!

Greenpoint Photos du Jour: Life Begins at 70!

Many a Greenpoint resident is familiar with 177 Nassau Avenue. It is inhabited by one of our community’s more lovable eccentrics. Well as of yesterday I noticed he, an avid runner, has made an additi0n to his storefront running the New York City Marathon (which he has done for sometime). Do take a moment to look at his creation in greater detail by clicking here. It will make you smile!
