New York Shitty Manhole Watch: Special 8th Commandment Edition

I have been woefully remiss in sharing the latest round of access cover plunder plaguing our fair burgh. This egregious oversight I hope to correct soon (probably tomorrow). In the meantime, I leave you with this one I found today across the street from Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. Drive carefully!

Spotted In Williamsburg: Nature

Those of you who are familiar with North 8 Street between Roebling and Havemeyer are undoubtedly familiar with the above item. It is an unused air conditioning fixture. Perhaps “unused ” is a mite bit inaccurate: as you can clearly see in the above photograph this space has since been re-purposed as a trash receptacle. That is until today.

Noticing that something was amiss I went in for a closer look. I’m glad I did!

I have no idea why someone saw fit to create this diorama— but I’m really happy he/she did. Words can barely describe it. Photographs aren’t much better. Those of you who have the opportunity do swing by and give this a look-see for yourself. It’s pretty amazing!

Williamsburg Photos du Jour: 184 North 8 Street

Some time ago a proposal was made— and approved— for a variance to be granted for 184 North 8 Street so a martial arts studio reside in this long-neglected (and often squatted) building. As you can see from the above photographs (which were taken this weekend) this facility is beginning to happen and we’re getting a rather lovely mural to boot! You can view an image of the completed product by clicking here.
