Yes, gentle Greenpoint readers, this would appear to be the case! Per NYC.gov:

We’re #1 at processing (and publicizing) #2! I know where I am taking my mother when she visits our fair city this spring. How about you?

P.S.: Special thanks go out to Laura Hofmann for bringing this to my attention!

‘Tis The Season: Christmas-a-cue

December 22, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

While some might interpret a conspicuous display of wattage as being holiday spirit, I  find the more humble and creative Christmas concoctions more compelling on occasion. CASE IN POINT: this find from North Henry Street. It has all the essential Greenpoint elements:

  • Patriotism
  • Barbecue
  • A Santa hat
  • and other pagan accouterments

Beg to differ my analysis? Why not go there and take it up the matter with the creators of this item. This Christmas-a-cue has “kick ass” written all over it. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

New York Shitty Slide Show Du Jour: Veni, Vidi, Vici!

October 9, 2010 ·

As I have mentioned— or at least intimated— this morning I got up bright and early morning so as to prepare myself for the Digester Egg Experience. I prepared my outfit for the day the night before: Subtexture’s awesome Greenpoint tee featuring the ‘Tits (as customized by yours truly) paired with coordinating pants. The sneakers? I will readily admit they do not coordinate: but they are pretty much the only thing I have in the way of sturdy “closed-toed” shoes. In this respect I think some leeway is allowed. Let’s face facts: I was not exactly going to have tea with the Queen. Rather, I was going to see the largest waste treatment plant in New York City. One man on our “tour” called the digester eggs “those Turkish dome looking things”. I corrected him:

Hereabouts we call them the Shit Tits.

And see them I did— along with the “Flushing Camera Club” (this made me giggle like a teenager) and a couple of folks that could be best described as sewage treatment “foamers”. I was not quick enough on the draw to get their questions/commentary. So it goes. But I did enjoy one volunteer admonishing us not to smoke— and a fellow OHNY goer asking why.

Methane gas.

The vollie relied. To wit I added:

Click, BOOM!

He found this tremendously amusing. My fellow tourists not so much. Anyhoo (and without further ado) follows are some shots from the Shit Tits. Enjoy!

LAST GASP: The Shit Never Sleeps?

As if my props to this, the Garden Spot’s most prominent landmark, via Time Out New York was not enough now I have learned our very own Shit Tits have made their way onto the silver screen. In an Oliver Stone film, no less! Jen (one of the fabulously cool co-pastors of the Greenpoint Reformed Church) writes:

Hi Heather,

You might already know about this, but today Ann and I went and saw the new Wall Street movie and the shit tits play a major role in the film.  Of course they aren’t playing the role of a poop processing center.  Instead they have been casted as a green energy research facility. Creative casting.

Methinks I might just have to see this (or would that be “them?”) on the big screen!

P.S.: On a related note, the Greenpoint Reformed Church’s food pantry and soup kitchen needs your help now more than ever. You can make a donation by clicking here and learn how you can volunteer by clicking here.
