9/28/07 53 Java

The chap who managed to jackknife this truck onto 51 Java Street September 28, 2007. I do not know your name, but I can safely assert that it takes a kind special person to achieve such a feat. One that was (in somewhat chronological order) reported by:

  1. The Gowanus Lounge
  2. Curbed
  3. The New York Post
  4. New York Magazine
  5. The Real Deal, who saw fit to use (and abuse) the above photo, MY PHOTO, without asking permission or giving credit.

no less. You have become quite the media star!

That said, the real stroke of genius (in my opinion) was Scarano taking the rap and getting those Stop Work Orders(s) lifted! Way to go you anonymous homewrecker, you are a Greenpoint Super Star! Subterfuge, selective record-keeping, log-tossing and incompetent people like you are what keeps the Garden Spot real estate market so lively!

Speaking of log-tossing and subterfuge, let’s see who owns 53 Java Street per the New York Department of State’s Division of Corporations:

Square Box Realty

Hmm. “Square Box Realty” is located in Queens County but their mailing address is at 295 Russell Street.




Have you, fellow Greenpointers, ever walked along this stretch of Russell Street? I have. It’s a shit hole. Hardly the place one would expect a realty company to call home. But then again, they probably don’t conduct any real business here. It’s a sham. Surprised? I’m not.

On that note, I leave you with this motivational poster.

  2. I think you are learning. The only thing that matters to NYC (and most of America) is $$$$$$. All laws are off as long as it makes a buck. What’s good for business is good for America. It’s sad and disturbing, but what is one to do? The political system is corrupt as are most civil servants. You have to just go about your own business. We will be old and grey before any major changes happen. And with the dollar falling like a rock, things aren’t going to get any better. Thank you GW Bush, you have ruined this country.

  4. You are learning! The only thing that matters to this city (and most of America) is $$$$$. You can’t beat them. It’s sad, but it’s the way this country is. A capatialist paradise. What is good for business is good for America. I hate it as much as you.
