#Beautiful_Greenpoint – Send Us Your Photos!

We were really pissed when we saw this post by Brooklyn Magazine that said, “Greenpoint looks like the poorest, most dangerous neighborhood in New York City” based on the results of a stupid poll of people judging neighborhoods based on google street view images. Everyone know those photos are lame.

Last week was such a hard week for us here in 11222, and it felt like they were kicking us while we were down. Let’s show all those bozos who thought Greenpoint is a dump that it is really charming in it’s own gritty and colorful way!

If you follow us on Instagram send the following hashtags #beautiful_greenpointers #greenpointers to @greenpointers.

On Flickr add it to the Greenpointers Flickr Pool.

You can also email us (small jpgs please!) with #beautful_greenpoint in the subject line to greenpointers at gmail.com

Stay gorgeous, Greenpoint!

Sunday Snaps: So American

Take a moment from sale shopping and hot dog eating to think about why you get a day off this week. Formerly known as Decoration Day, because Southern ladies and schoolchildren decorated confederate graves, “Memorial Day has been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars.” - Wiki

I am excited that we have some new members and great photographs in our Flickr photo pool. Today we have photos from Jordan Guile, Benjamin J. Taylor and myself.

SUNDAY SNAPS: GREENPOINT TRUCKS

I like trucks. I like to be high up off the ground when I drive. I wish I had a huge garage where I could park all of these bad ass trucks. This is part of an ongoing “Auto Series” I am photographing with my iphone around the neighborhood. Make sure to keep up with Greenpointers on Flickr and Instagram.
