New York Shitty Day Ender: Happiness

happy

This bit of happiness hails from 277 South 2nd Street (between Marcy Avenue and Havemeyer Street). The above image is a mere teaser to the tantalizing four stories of aborted and boarded up  “Fedderism” that awaits your delectation if and/or when you elect to swing by and see this Fedderus Interuptus in person. And I encourage each and every one of you, dear readers, to do just this.

Kevin Walsh (of Forgotten New York) writes in this post (which needs to be seen to truly be believed):

I’ve come to the conclusion that Johnny Rotten was wrong when he said there’s “no future for you.” There is a future for Queens, and what we’ve seen on this page is that future.

And the image gracing the beginning of this post is the future of north Brooklyn! Scratch that— this is north Brooklyn’s present. Given the number of “luxury” properties and Kings crap that are still being built here despite a surplus, lack of interest and money north Brooklyn is well along the road to its own personal perdition…

COMINGSOON

and a very sad future, indeed!

Inasmuch as I hate to be pedantic or “preachy” I am going to make an exception for this post. When you cast your ballots this fall*, fellow north Brooklynites, I want to to think about the above image.  Our elected officials (with the complicity and/or implicit— if not explicit— approval of certain “grassroots” organizations/”community organizers”) enabled this.

*And I hope you do— regardless of whether or not you agree with me. North Brooklyn has long sported a deplorable voter turn-out. Make your voice heard!

North Brooklyn Street Art Du Jour: Mixed Bag

July 2, 2009 ·
Filed under: Greenpoint Magic, Street Art, Williamsburg 

Lest the relative silence today on New York Shitty has not been an indication I am kicking off this 4th of July weekend early. Over the next several days I will be posting— albeit not as prolifically as usual. (Hey, even I need to take a vacation once in a while!) The previous having been written, here’s a cavalcade of street art to get the party rolling. Enjoy!

Vollies Needed For Williamsburg Walks

June 4, 2009 ·

As many of you are probably already aware this upcoming weekend kicks off “Williamsburg Walks”.  For those of you who are not in the know this means every Saturday through July 11th, from noon until sunset, Bedford Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic from North 9th – North 4th Street. There will also be a great number of activities associated with this year’s event including, but not limited to, the Northside Music & Arts Festival. Needless to say an endeavor of this scope needs volunteers. This is where you come in. You can help the folks at Neighbors Allied for Good Growth and L Magazine to ensure this year’s event is a success by donating “street furniture” or some of your time. To learn more about how you can lend a hand contact the event’s organizer, Gregor Nemitz-Ziadie via email at:

g (dot) nemitzziadie (at) gmail (dot) com

or point and click your way to Billburg.com’s “volunteer” page.

Thanks!

Miss Heather
