New York Shitty Video du Jour: Blowin’ In The Wind

At last night’s meeting at Red Star Bar I was tipped off that St. Elia’s Church— or more specifically the crucifix gracing this landmarked property was showing signs of distress. Today I decided to do walk-by and see this for myself.

Sure enough, the wind was a blowing and it was a shakin’.

Curiously enough, nary a single complaint appears to have been filed with the Department of Buildings. Anyone care to kick things off with a call to 311?

When at first you do not succeed (and do click on the above image to view this Craigslist advert!)…


try, try again!

July 2009:


Those wacky chaps at H. Hirsch (who, as some might remember, wanted to convert this building into a 35-38 unit condominium complex) are back at it. What’s more, given the recession and all, they’re ready, willing and able to “separate”!

How will this bode for the numerous gents who like to hang out at said premises and use it as a pissoir? Only time will tell.

Since when is Greenpoint “the safest neighborhood in New York”? Isn’t this a few blocks away from Club Exit? 4! minutes. not 5 to the midtown tunnel. If it was 5 I’d have to reconsider. very high ceilings – no shit. it’s a CHURCH.

I’ll take it, but only if I get to fedderize it.

Don’t believe that our very own St. Elias has been banished to the real estate limbo that is Craigslist? Click on the above screencap or go to craigslist and see for yourself. Sorry scenesters, no dance clubs allowed.

P.S.: Only $400,000? Where do I sign?
