From The New York Shitty Inbox: Old School

A person we’ll call “R” notes of the above-depicted find (in an email entitled “Morning View”):

Usually reserved for West St.  and even then not in a few years

From The New York Shitty Photo Pool, Part II: Stolen

The derelict construction site on Dupont Street (which some of you might recall was the site of a suicide several years ago) is proving to be the gift that keeps on giving. A lass named Laura writes (of the above photographs):

The word on the block is that the tires from this car were robbed last night. The thieves used the blocks from the 141 Dupont St. construction site to lift the car up.

LAST GASP: Greenpoint Degentrification Watch

Today I intended to call it an early night. I’ve been running around like crazy all week. I’m tired. Then the following found its way to my inbox tonight at 10:06 p.m. Man, oh Manischewitz

The owner of this Lexus Infinity (which has been unburdened of its wheels) writes:

Hello Miss Heather,

Thought you may find this a bit interesting… All four OEM wheels stolen from my vehicle on Kent Street between Manhattan Ave. and Franklin St. in Greenpoint. Pics taken today 3/18/10 at 6:50p
I have become acclimatized to the odd carbecque here and therebut this?!? In the Historic District no less?!? I know a number of people who live on Kent Street. They keep a very watchful eye over their block. For this reason I am both amazed and concerned that someone could pull off stealing four tires without getting caught. But I suppose that’s gentrification for you.

Otherwise— and quite frankly— I’m speechless.

Miss Heather

P.S.: I have been told these tires were MIA as of 4:30 a.m. Thursday morning. I guess some people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day differently than others.
