Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Murphy’s Munchies, Revisited

Those of you who happen to be in the Garden Spot for what promises to be a sunny— if a bit balmy— weekend should swing by and see the rather impressive garden this chap has created. It’s a lovely addition to the neighborhood!

New York Shitty Slide Show Du Jour: Old Tymers Day

As I mentioned yesterday the folks at Phun Factory assembled a host of graffiti artists to give a hitherto largely unnoticed corner of the Garden Spot a paint job. Today I swung by several times to see how things were going. Follows is a slide show of highlights. Enjoy!

TOMORROW: Old Tymers Day

This item was brought to my attention by my buddy across the creek, Queens Crap. Tomorrow starting at 9:00 a.m. the folks at the recently re-launched Phun Factory will be hosting Old Tymers Day: a collaborative project by over 50 graffiti artists from the 1960’s – 1980’s which will give North 15 Street and its environs a much-needed makeover! You can learn more about this event and Phun Factory by heading over to the latter’s temporary web site. Check it out!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: What’s Up At North 15 & Berry Street?

I asked this very question here on New York Shitty a few days ago. Today I am pleased to announce that I have an answer thanks to Jay of Dog Habitat! He writes:

I took Abby out for a late night stroll to McCarren park and walked by that food cart/wagon on that triangle at Berry, Banker and N15. There was a gentleman there with a shovel digging along the sidewalk. He greeted me with a hearty “how do you do?” and I walked over to investigate. I was glad I had a big dog at my side because he was, after all, armed with a shovel and who knows what else. Turns out this guy was very friendly and told me he’s planting flowers! [cue REM’s Gardening at Night]. I didn’t catch the guys name, but he said he was fixing up the spot for his buddy who was opening a hot dog stand. He was working late because he’s a driver for a car service and was shoveling/planting in-between passenger pick-ups. I’ll keep an eye on the wagon and will let you know when they start servin’ up dogs and who knows what else.

And here are the fruits of his labor.

So there have you. Thanks Jay for getting to the bottom of this Greenpoint mystery!

New York Shitty Day Starter: Banker Street

When the Mister spied two gents giving this truck a thorough wash-down he dashed over and asked how old it was, the make and model, etc. All I had to add to this discussion was that they should give the lady gracing the hood some sunscreen. Believe it or not, they found this tremendously amusing.

P.S.: On a Banker Street related note does anyone know what is going on here (the junction of North 15 and Banker Street at Nassau Avenue)?

I first noticed the Murphy’s Munchiemobile on May 4th. Now, as you can see, it is accompanied by a van…

and someone appears to be clearing the lot. For what, I do not know.

If any of you, dear readers, have insight about this curiousity please tender them via comments or email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Inquiring minds (mine, foremost among them) want to know!
