Tortilleria Chinantla: Bushwick

This horrific story might hopefully remind some people how hard “illegals” work.

I got a peek inside this factory last May with my friend Sam. The workers could not have been nicer, despite the language gap. They even gave my friend Sam a free package of Tortillas after rightfully making fun of his bad Spanish.

My thoughts go out to the family and friends of Juan.

This photo (which was taken by Carnade at Maria Hernandez Park) is a refreshing way to remind everyone to please exercise caution while you’re out and about today. We’re under (yet another) heat advisory!

This image fails from Maria Hernandez Park and comes courtesy of Carnade. On that note, I am giving myself the day off to have a little fun of my own!

This photograph of a young girl waiting for her mother to complete a day’s work at a Bushwick Tortilleria was taken by Carnade and struck me as the perfect way to kick off this summery Friday. The wait’s almost over!

Great Moments In Aluminum Siding XIX: Troutman Street Fugfest

April 14, 2009 ·
Filed under: Abjectecture, Articles of Fedderization, Vinyl Siding 

Living in Greenpoint has to some extent immunized me to aluminum siding. I can walk down block (and block) chock a block of the stuff and it no longer fazes me. I have long harbored the fear that I had become a siding Queen. Then I gazed upon 247 Troutman Street. To quote Madonna:

unglyontroutman

I made it through the wilderness
Somehow I made it through
Didn’t know how lost I was
Until I found you

Infatuated with the sheer fugliness of this structure I went in for a closer look.

There’s a whole lot of fug happening here.

Across the street.

Down the block.

I made Mister Heather look at this one immediately upon arriving home from work. After sputtering a few incomprehensible syllables about its utter hideousness he headed straight for the liquor cabinet.

I don’t blame him. I had to toss down a couple glasses of wine (at home) before digesting this beauty.

Too bad this wine bar at Wilson Avenue and Starr Street wasn’t open. Was the baby shit colored siding to blame or just the sour economy? I suspect we’ll never know.

Miss Heather

P.S.: This beauty can also be found on Troutman Street. What it lacks in siding it makes up for in sheer stupid.
