justice is blind



I can check off almost all the previous as being someone I know and care about. Except Park Slope Moms. They terrify me. But I recognize their right to organize.

America is ostensibly a civil society. Let’s act like one once again (15th and 19th amendment) and give our  fellow gay and lesbian citizens the same rights we take for granted.

From The New York Shitty Photo Pool: St. Celilia’s In Flames!


No, not really! It’s a film shoot for Rescue Me. Lisacat (who took the above footage and photograph) notes:

Filming RESCUE ME with stage smoke and flames in the St. Cecilia’s Rectory building. Nice to learn series creator and actor, Dennis Leary is also an animal person.

Closing on a related note, Rescue Me will be setting the Greenpoint Terminal Market on fire for our collective post-May 2, 2006 dark delectation this evening. Fortunately this time the Fire Department will be on hand before anything goes up in flames. You can learn more about tonight’s fire works by pointing and clicking your way over to Gothamist.

Found On Union Avenue: Chance To Live In $7,000 A Month Apartment!

I’m not too sure how well this is going to go over in the heart of Bloomblightville, Brooklyn, 11211 but here it is. Wanna to live in a two bedroom, fully furnished “luxury apartment” in the West Village? Here’s your chance!


Per the rules no purchase is required. Interested parties can learn more by clicking here. Apparently you have to submit a 30 second video explaining why you should get it. I would strongly recommend anyone who was rendered homeless by the building collapse last month at 493 Myrtle Avenue enter and tell his (or her) story.


As for who is responsible for this piece of Darthitecture— given the mezzanine abuse I’m guessing Robert Scarano or Karl Fischer. Perhaps the folks over at Curbed can enlighten us?

Audience Participation Time: The Ugliest Building In Brooklyn?

June 1, 2009 ·
Filed under: Greenpoint Magic, Queens, Williamsburg 

numberoneuglyautumnsol Ever since I posted the good news about the L Haus winning the #1 Ugliest Building in Queens my inbox (and incoming links) have been interesting to say the least.

Laura writes:

…regarding the ugliest building in Queens. Love it.  Let’s do Greenpoint! Here’s my nominee, the one with the bulls eye. On memorial day my grandson was trying to shoot it with spit balls…

The building of which she speaks— 20 Bayard Street— is, unfortunately, located in Williamsburg. But Brooklyn11211 does a pretty good job of eviscerating it for the pile of shit it is. Halden volleyed the first proverbial spitball at this glass house. So to speak.

Now my buddy over in Queens has gotten into the swing of things. One commenter, Timothy, wrote:

There are some nasty McMansions near me that might qualify as Queens Fugliest. I think we should have a real contest!

I agree. We need a real contest. A Brooklyn versus Queens smack-down of fug infamy— or outer-borough barfchitecture. To this end I have created this flickr group and will get the ball rolling  with my nominee: The Luminous.


This colossal pile of crap can be found on Richardson Street, Brooklyn 11222. It is the brain child of Karl Fischer Robert Scarano— who is all too eager to exploit “modification permits” when the mood (and/or money) suits him. The above (and strangely incongruous) brick facade was once a building. As you can see it has been given a new lease on life: the frontispiece and justification for this bigass pile of King’s crap! I for one am very fond of the beam left intact to support the adjacent buildings.


But this half-assed awning (which doesn’t even cover the entire doorway) comes in a close second.


Lovely. As I was taking the above photograph an old-timer painting his garage across the street asked:

Don’t you want to take my picture?

I replied:

Sure. I’d much rather take a photograph of you than that THING across the street.

So I did.


I might end up in the Greenpoint Gazette!

he said. I told him it was a distinct possibility— and that he might become a celebrity. He laughed heartily.

In any case this my inaugural piece of King’s crap to get this bi-borough rumble going.

Hear me, Crappy? Let’s get it on!

Only the creator of this work of art knows for certain if the man in a high state of agitation/gastronomic distress atop this toilet bowl is supposed to be Richard Simmons. He probably isn’t— but that’s what I want to believe so I am not going to make a big stink of it.
