Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: The Word On The Street

It would appear the construction fence fail at 958 Manhattan Avenue (which, inasmuch as I can ascertain, has been in effect since at least March 17th) has come to the attention of Paul Richard. If/when the Department of Buildings will take action remains to be seen.


New York Shitty Street Art Du Jour: The Word On The Street

I am taking the glass half-full approach to this one: at least they have managed to place a fence around these premises. This is a very welcome development compared to what I saw back in January. Well done, Mr. Richard!

Closing on the subject (of Paul Richard), as luck (?) would have it I stumbled upon another piece of his handiwork on the Northside. It had been, how shall we say, “modified”. Whether or not this was done willfully and deliberately has been the subject of debate at Chez Shitty this evening. I contend it was not. The Mister contends that while the person responsible (and I can assure you this was the handiwork of a human being) may not have “planned” to do this, he/she did take placement under consideration. He opined— and I quote:

This was a crime of opportunity.

WARNING/CAVEAT:

  1. This is not for those with weak stomachs.
  2. Once you this is seen, it cannot be unseen.

Without further ado, here it is…

Those of you who wish to see this in person go to North 11th Street. It is on the sidewalk across the street from “The Whiskey” (on the premises of the Brooklyn Brewery, if my memory serves me correctly). I suppose it goes without saying: watch where you walk!

Welcome To Greenpoint

As taken today, September 29, 2013 one block away from the India Street Pier.

Thought of the day: if the leaders of our community want to attract tourists, perhaps they should crackdown on speculators/developers who do not maintain their properties, illegally occupy the sidewalk and/or street with their “accoutrements”*, etc.? Is it just me or are our electeds sort of missing the forest for the trees here?

*This a nice way of saying shit.

Indeed it is! Hat’s off to Paul Richard for this piquant method of highlighting some of our local Bloomblight. Bravo!
