Lining Up

As posted on the North Brooklyn Comunity Yahoo Group and forwarded to me by the colossal Greenpoint badass that is Laura Hofmann:

Got call from news channel 12 Brooklyn (channel 156 Time Warner Cable).   They  wanted to interview  us  on  the  Museum’s  land  about the eminent  domain.  They are showing us on the Museum’s land today on tvnew… 10 pm Sunday night.  They put a vote on their website do you want  a park or museum?  We didn’t know they were going to  do this.  I called them and said it is not either or.  There will be a 27 acre park and 1 acre for museum.  Check the link to their site below and vote for the Museum.  Pass this around.

Janice and George

Done!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Now At Java Street Park!

An anonymous tipster opines of the above-depicted item:

Art or vandalism – you decide!  I’m leaning to the art side of the fence.

I’ll leave it to you, gentle readers, (and our Parks Department) to make the call. In the meantime I prefer to see the tar bucket as being half-full— in a manner of speaking.

The long-awaited opening of this piece of public space appears to have motivated the powers-that-be to collect all the rubbish gracing the northern side of this street!

On December 8, 2011 I wrote (in this post):

But alas, our Parks “Advocate” (and Parks Supervisor) are not reasonable people. This is why we have a “pop-up park” on my fair burgh’s waterfront which— while purported to have been “ready” in June (per the Deputy Director of OSA) and available to Nuit Blanche/East River Ferry patrons in October— is still closed to the general public.

Well gentle readers, I have some very good news to share! The newly-appointed gatekeeper of Java Street Park writes today, December 9, 2011:

I am the gatekeeper of that park at the end of java between india st pier entrance and java.  you can announce that it will be open most days, depending on my sleep/work schedule, from about 7:30am to about 6pm

Bundle up and get down there Garden Spotters! NOTE/CAVEAT: As I learned this afternoon, you can only gain entrance via Java Street.
