Unfortunately it’s time for me to move on.  The 11222 offers a small variety of shack or dump and occasionally a one bedroom (with a shower in the kitchen and a toilet on a different floor) within my price range.  All very tempting but I’ve reluctantly decided to return to Queens, the land of my birth.

New York Shitty will continue to be a daily read for me, unless the memories become too painful to bear. In closing here is a picture i took of a pile of shit someone left on top of a VCR Sunday morning on the corner of Newel and Norman.

This makes me sad. Inasmuch as some say the rents are falling here (and to some extent they are) the fact of the matter is they are still WAY above their fair market value. To close on related note if you want to see something that will bring you to point of tears (either via laughter or abject sadness) click here.

A Revue Of Greenpoint Street Furniture

April 1, 2009 ·
Filed under: Greenpoint Magic 

This week the street furniture gods have smiled upon Greenpoint. Perhaps this is due to a number of people moving? Or the fact I live in Bedbug central? I try not to think about it too much to be perfectly frank. In any case, here’s a revue of my latest finds. Enjoy!

This stunning ensemble hails from Newel Street. Not only has a stylish three legged coffee table been thrown… in for good measure…

but you also get a sock. Use it wisely.

This much worse for wear bit of street seating comes courtesy of Norman Avenue. If only these cushions could talk; I bet they’d have an interesting tale to tell!

nassauavenue

I found this saucy number on Nassau Avenue. Why someone would discard something this stylish is beyond me. I am certain they had their reasons.

Last— but hardly least— Meeker Avenue hits us up with this cream colored sleeper. There are a lot of home furnishings roaming the streets of our mean city. These are but a few. Until next time…
