The above item elicited many a sophomoric giggle from yours truly this afternoon. I suppose it goes without saying I brought it to the Mister’s attention as soon as I arrived home.

Me: Check this out!
The Mister (sitting on the couch, squinting): What is that?
Me: Come over here and look.

And “look” he did.

T.M.: Oh. It’s a man dropping his pants.
Me: Yup. You can bounce a quarter off of that ass! I for one really like how it is juxtaposed with the balconized and downright totalitarian-looking piece of ass to the left.

The Mister concurred.

I saw this post today on gothamist, and my jaw just dropped. A megalith tower on freaking India street???? Are the thousand yuppies stupid enough to buy crappy condos for $750,000 all going to crowd onto the G train? A-holes.

To answer Jessica’s question: yes, I have seen this. I was especially amused by this quote from the developer, one Jonathan Bernstein:

We are asking for radical changes to the zoning, but we do think it’s way different than anything that’s been proposed on the waterfront… We think it will be a gateway to Manhattan and Greenpoint.

New York Shitty analysis: it looks like Long Island City ate a business park and took a shit.

Initially the Mister couldn’t understand my fascination with this poster other than the fact it is really, truly, seriously, BAD product placement. Some watery tart doing yoga on the on the East River does not appeal to us Greenpointers. As a matter of fact we find the water here quite revolting. But I digress.

Who’s Cluck?

Mr. Heather asked. I pointed out the subtle commentary via ball point pen.

He got it.

I wonder if either of the previous fellow G train travelers is aware that Dean Palin, the mastermind behind the Oro Condominiums, has been given the greenlight to build a 39 story tower on West Street? I don’t think so. Well, he has (courtesy of our local Community Board) and it’s ugly as hell.
