Urban Artifact: Dogwood

If this curiosity (recently spotted on Sutton Street) is any indication  it would appear money is not the only thing that grows on trees.

The Word On The Street, Part IV: From Sutton Street With Love

P.S.: Props go out to my eagle-eyed compatriot at Brooklyn Imbecile for spotting and capturing the second item (that has since received an addition which appears to be written in excrement). Great find!

I spied this flyer today at the intersection of Meeker Avenue and Sutton Street while enjoying today’s wonderful weather. It goes without saying that stuff like this breaks my heart— so if you have seen Boots or know of his whereabouts please contact his people at the above-listed telephone number. Let’s get this gorgeous guy back home!

From The Brooklyn Daily Eagle Archives & Beyond: Fireworks!

Yours truly has been hearing a lot of fireworks lately. In fact, I heard some being discharged one very short block away from the location of a two-alarm fire which came to pass recently. Clearly a lesson has not been learned. For better or for worse, dear readers, we Greenpointers love us some fireworks. This in and of itself would not be a problem if we could simply use them correctly. Without further ado here are a couple of items from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle archives for your Independence Day reading pleasure. We’ll start with a personal favorite of yours truly: the tale of one Uriah Hoare. Enjoy!

June 15, 1860

Those of you who are wondering (as I did) as to why Mr. Hoare was arrested on “suspicion”, I found the answer via an item from the New York Times’s “Brooklyn Intelligencer” section dating from the very same day! It is truly something special.

And of course, when playing with fire crackers it is highly advisable to keep said articles pointed away from one’s face. On June 30, 1902 a Sutton Street resident named James Connolly learned this lesson the hard way.

Have a fun— and safe— 4th of July Garden Spotters!
