New York Shitty Day Ender: The Conversation

Given all the talk about truck traffic and the diversion of vehicular traffic from Nassau Avenue to Norman Avenue at this week’s Transportation Committee meeting you can imagine, gentle readers, how fascinating I found the above bit of gridlock (as spied at approximately 1:00 this afternoon). As you can see there are two truck on Norman Avenue (which, it should be noted, is to be used for making deliveries only). They are not making deliveries. Rather, their drivers are having a conversation. One which they (finally) decided to terminate once a motorist on Newel Street resumed her salvo of honking.

Yes, that’s a Polish eagle with two guns. I can’t make out the number.

Nice find!

Spotted In Greenpoint: More Hate

Hi Miss Heather,

I hope you are well.
I recall you once did a story on this. I found that sticker again, on a stop sign at the corner of Calyer and Newel.
I alerted 311 and the police, but I still found it up there when I biked by there 5 hours later.

As I have written before, these stickers are produced and distributed by a recognized hate group. If you happen upon one please report it to the police. STAT. In closing, here’s another such sticker I found recently on Manhattan Avenue.

Disgusting.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Another Hit & Run?

It would appear that in the wee hours of Sunday morning a Greenpointer was the victim of a hit and run on Calyer Street between Newel and McGuinness Boulevard. The good news is the victim is alive, if in critical condition. The bad news is this is yet another example of how out of control speeding is around McGuinness Boulevard. You can read the whole sad story by clicking here.

My wishes go out to Mr. Chamberlain and his loved ones. May he make a complete recovery and the party responsible for this reprehensible act be brought to justice.

Miss Heather

P.S.: Special thanks goes out to Caryn Rose for bringing this to my attention.

UPDATE, 6:36 p.m.: Here is an email I have received regarding this incident. Anonymous writes:

My sister witnessed that hit and run. Or rather, her cab driver saw it all. She was heading back to NYC and said that it was a white car and the guy was pretty bad. They got out of the car and she said he was unconscious and bleeding from the head but that he was still breathing. They called 911 and flagged down a passing cop car… She said the cops were rather dismissive and said that the victim was drunk- they could smell it. She said “how do you know that? I  had wine tonight!”…. I guess that if the victim is drunk that means he deserves to be mowed down!!… She said they didn’t seem interested in taking down names or statements either…. There is an outdoor surveillance camera outside the fabric store next to Dough de Damas. I wonder if the cops even checked that out???
– I am furious at the attitude of the cops.!!!
