New York Shitty Slide Show Du Jour: New Year’s Day, North Brooklyn Style

Falsie Manhattan Avenue nys

As promised, here is a slide show featuring items of interest I encountered while take a New Year’s Day stroll around points Green and beyond. When I left the apartment the Mister wished me luck in my hunt for “barfcicles”. He’s thoughtful that way. What’s more, it must have worked because it did not take me long to find one. Actually, it is more like barf buckshot.

NOTE: I elected to be somewhat judicious when selecting curating material encountered in Williamsburg (Bedford Avenue in particular) as it is pretty much trashed on any given weekend. Enjoy!

Have a shot of post-New Year’s Eve debauchery? I would very much like to see it! You can kick ’em over to my photo pool or via email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com.

As is usually the case, I indulged in an informal New York Shitty New Year’s tradition. This of course is going to bed early New Year’s Eve so as to get up, go out and review the aftermath of north Brooklyn’s “festivities”. As you see, I was not disappointed. What initially caught my interest (naturally) was the artful array of bottle caps and solitary dinosaur on the fender. When I noticed the automobile had two, um, “inhabitants” well this had to be documented for posterity. At least they elected not to drive. Hence why I elected to blur out the license plates, registration, etc. I suspect the hangovers, sore backs and (probably) dead car battery are “punishment” enough for last night’s “merrymaking”/transgressions.

I will be uploading photos of my findings (there is vomit, discarded clothing— socks mostly, for some reason— hypodermic needles and even a partially incinerated box spring) in a bit— so check back!

Quicklink: New Year’s Day Sexual Assault In “Greenpoint”?

January 3, 2012 ·
Filed under: 11211, East Williamsburg, East Williamsburg Brooklyn 

The “good” news: this assault did not happen in Greenpoint. It came to pass on Maspeth Avenue (East Williamsburg). Not that this makes the fact a sexual assault came to pass any more appetizing: it doesn’t. You can read NBC’s very general rundown of what happened by clicking here. Otherwise, please PLEASE exercise extra vigilance while out and about late at night north Brooklynites— and watch out for each other!

UPDATE, 9:35 p.m.: This evening it was brought to my attention that a similar (and thankfully: unsuccessful) sexual assault came to pass this same evening in the same general area (Humboldt near Withers Street, about a ten minute walk north). Although I have asked for more details here’s what I know: this incident came to pass around 4:00 a.m. The woman, thinking quickly, screamed until she got the attention of neighbors (who called the police). The “perp” (who it should be noted, had his “tackle” out and ready to “go”)¬† got scared and ran away.

Special thanks goes out to Queens Crap for bringing this to my attention.
