Appropriately enough, the property adjacent to this is being converted into a bar.

Williamspoint Slide Show Du Jour: 2001-2004 B.C.

Before and After 911nys

The above photograph is probably in some part responsible for motivating me to write about Greenpoint. Like most things in my life, it was an accident. I had shot a roll of film, then 9/11 happened. Not having the means to buy more film I rewound it, thus creating this double exposure of life on Manhattan Avenue juxtaposed with Manhattan going black.

I do not want to suggest that this photo set is dark. It isn’t. The Garden Spot of the Universe and the people who live here are resilient and vibrant. But it does make one wonder about how things have changed since these photographs were taken.

My favorite is this one, lest you are wondering.

This mural (which hails from North 10 Street at Wythe Avenue) has since been completed. If the opportunity presents itself, dear readers, do swing by and give it a look-see. It’s really lovely.

Bloomturds!

I have given our fair mayor a lot of guff of late. Today I was reminded of some of his notable achievements as I strolled the streets of Williamsburg. I felt a twinge of guilt. In the interest of giving credit where it is truly due I will showcase my finds here.

224wytheNYS

This is 224 Wythe Avenue. At a casual glance this may appear to be yet another half completed construction site/eye sore. I assure you this is not the case: upon closer examination you will learn it is much, much more!

SHIT

I suspect I speak for many when I write that public lavatories are in short supply in north Brooklyn. Granted, this one is not appointed with toilet paper or soap— but then again most of the facilities around here aren’t. To its credit the Wythe Avenue crapper does sport a measure of much needed privacy and the orange safety fence is a nice touch.

north10st

There are a great many privies to be found in Williamsburg. All one need to do is look for them. Above is my personal favorite. It hails from North 9 Street.

north10stshit

This brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “full of shit”. I don’t know about you but I’d be exhausted after discharging such a copious amount of effluvia from my body.

peestainedmattress

Thankfully someone has been kind enough to donate a mattress to this al fresco pissoir.

north4street

But Bloomblight need not be so abject. It can also be uplifting. Just take North 4 Street (as seen above), for example.

No longer need those prostheses? Freecycle ’em on North 4 Street. Someone else might!
