QUESTION: What do you call a municipal government (and the people who elected it) when a year’s worth of rent on a two bedroom apartment in north Brooklyn meets— if not exceeds— the median income for family of four?

ANSWER: A disgrace.

Although quite a fuss has been raised over the glut of “luxury” apartments in my community (and the high vacancy rates which have come as a result), no one seems to have noticed the visible increase in homelessness that has come with it. Among the “benefits” Greenpoint was promised as a result of the new zoning were park space and affordable housing. As of April 22, 2009 we have received neither. Instead we have been saddled with a colossal number of empty lots, vacant properties and half-finished “nondos” while more people and more people are finding themselves on the streets.

Am I the only person who is angered by this?

Williamsburg Slide Show Du Jour: Inside Engine 212

This weekend I met my good friend and community activist extraordinaire, Phil DePaulo. After having lunch he asked if I’d like to check out the interior of Engine 212 (also known as The Peoples Firehouse)  at 136 Wythe Avenue. He told me they were preparing for a one-night event and this was a very unique opportunity. Being a maven of things old, dusty and decayed I thought about this for maybe nanosecond and enthusiastically replied:

Hell yeah!

Follows is a sampling of photographs from my experience. Enjoy!

I can hardly wait to see this place restored back to its former and all-too-well deserved glory— how about you?
