New York Shitty Video/Photos Du Jour: Feeling Like Easter Edition

Wythe Avenue, 11211

Noble Street, 11222

57 Franklin Street, 11222

Without argument the lovely (and incredibly sweet) lady who resides at 57 Franklin can be trusted to roll out the most wonderful decorations for any occasion. But when Easter comes a calling she she goes over the top— in the biggest, brightest, and most wonderful way. Photos and video do not do it justice. Get down there and see it for yourself!

Now In Greenpoint: “Condo Finishes”

CONDOFINISHES

 

Where do I start with this one? Well for starters invoking the word “condo” makes it quite clear to whom this solicitation is directed. They aspire to condo living— but have a rental budget. Personally I do not find that to be anything interesting or “new”. Rather, I interpret this as suggesting that most new rental properties hereabouts are poorly constructed, over-priced shit. This is because they are.

Therefore:

  • While undoubtedly quite expensive these apartments are of a higher quality of construction.
  • Simply stating “2 and 3 bedroom apartments that are not built like shit”, while honest, does not make for snappy copy. (Although I rather like it.)

Well played, Corcoran!
