Today the “Heather Clan” made the obligatory trip to Chinatown and the East Village. Not only did I have a great time (Miss Heather loves her some Chinatown!), but I took a number of photographs which I will share with you soon. In the meantime here is a pair of absolutely stunning images from a little closer to home courtesy of mugsniffer. Enjoy!

Mister Heather took this great photograph of a not-so-rascally rabbit getting a little play time in McCarren Park recently. Follows is a slide show I compiled of some shots I took in the greater 11222 area to celebrate this Easter Sunday. Enjoy!

Get off the computer already and enjoy the sunshine!

There is a pot hole at the intersection of Engert Avenue and Russell Street


…and it’s a rather sizable one at that.


Then again, perhaps this isn’t a pot hole? Maybe it is a cryptically marked portal to let the Morlocks out? Who knows? In any event it is probably best avoided. Consider yourselves warned fellow Greenpointers.

‘Tis The Season: 97 Russell Street

December 5, 2008 ·
Filed under: Greenpoint Magic 

Yesterday we visited our friends over on Humboldt Street. Today I thought it only appropriate to see how the competition is doing over on Russell.

It would appear that (unlike Halloween) 97 Russell Street has a commanding lead. Here are a few highlights.

I have a confession to make: these carolers sort of give me the creeps.

However, I do like these angels.

The same goes for these snowmen.

Especially this one which bears an uncanny resemblance to Winston Churchill.

Naturally a nativity is present…

and not even the windows have been left untouched. Thus far this is the finest Christmas display I have seen this year. Therefore, I give 97 Russell Street two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Halloween Photos du Jour: Finally!

After getting off to late start I am pleased to announce that 97 Russell Street is getting down to some serious Halloween business! What’s more I got to meet the woman behind some of this madness (she was waiting for her husband to arrive with a lift so they could hoist a ghost onto their tree) and get the 411 as to what is going on.

Apparently the reason they got off to a late start this year (the left-hand side of the yard was still incomplete as of today) was because she went on a trip to Egypt (!) and her hubby didn’t where she had stashed all the Halloween goodness!

Once the aerosol foam insulation dries on this bad boy he’ll be brandishing a meat cleaver! YAY!

This cute little witch holds court with her retinue of ghosts above the front door…

right next to this rather nasty looking fella.

Scaryass clown? Check.

Wraith and an organ? Check.

These skulls on a pike come from Long Island!

I can hardly wait to see what this looks like once they fire up the smoke machine. (YES, they’re going to have one!)

Last week I learned from their neighbors over on Humboldt that there is some long-standing friendly competition between brains behind the Humboldt Hurler and the folks at 97 Russell. As a matter of fact, their properties abut each other —enabling them to keep careful track of each others progress. It’s all in good fun though. The incredibly kind woman at 97 Russell told me today with a hint of pride that their house and 648 Humboldt were featured in the New York Daily News last year. This came to pass because her daughter happens to be a reporter for this publication.

Now that’s what I call an inside scoop!
