The “other side of McGuinness” #OSOM sure feels like “the other Greenpoint” but there is an entirely OTHER Greenpoint on the other side of the world in Cape Town, South Africa.

Everyone goes nuts about the Cherry Blossoms, but the true stunners are the Magnolia Trees, which make the most glorious giant pink and white flowers that only last a week.

These photos are dedicated to my Mom and Dad who took me to Brooklyn Botanic Gardens an infinite amount of times as a kid.

While on a walk in South Williamsburg I saw this amazing Egyptian Ronald McDonald wheat paste by Wizard Skull. Of course I instagrammed it and Wizard Skull sent me more twisted and disturbing Ronald McDonald drawings.
