Do we all agree that spring sucks this year? Those electric blue skies, humping brown birds, bursting daffodils and even blooming cherry blossoms – but the damn cold won’t quit! Spring, stop sleeping in and get up and go to work! What a lazy season.

I remember having a conservation with a architectural historian about Greenpoint. He remarked at how beautiful our landmarked blocks are and I said, “how about landmarking the siding? That is quintessential Greenpoint!” And Connie O’s, of course.
Some random but complimentary images from our #greenpointers Instagram hashtag. Send us all your Greenpoint photos to be featured on Sunday Snaps!
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. The genius doesn’t stop there, as you can see with Freddy Kreuger as Skeletor and Abe Lincoln with a Rick Ross tattoo. Follow @wizardskull
Christmas trees are so dramatic and vain. Cut me down and put all these lights and ornaments on me so everyone oohs and aahs when they see me! And your stupid cats want to get up all in me, but they can’t – what losers. Adorn me with all those fancy presents and make sure you water me four times per day. When you leave – turn the lights off or I might burn down your entire house. After all that, chip me and leave me for compost! But you can’t get rid of me, because I’m going to leave sharp needles all around your house that will cut your toes all summer. Merry Christmas!
Sometime, just one moment can set your day on the right course. This Cooper’s Hawk, the same I believe that we watched last year around this time stuffing its face with a pigeon was spotted this morning squawking loudly in the same tree. What an amazing Greenpoint morning!
I love when three images randomly line up in either vertically or horizontally in a grid in an interesting way, which is what inspired this Sunday Snaps on our #greenpointers Instagram hashtag. First and last @caseyhedstrom, middle @hdnyc

Sometimes gloomy skies turn upside down and a beautiful rainbow appears. The below are two rainbows taken about a year apart from my bedroom window on Kingsland Ave. Lots of other Greenpointers shared the same rainbows on Instagram from all different angles. I love that. In addition to photos taken from the Greenpointers Flickr pool, I want to include photos from our Instagram buddies, too. Follow us on Instagram and tag us @greenpointers or tag the photo #greenpointers for any photos you would like to be shared on the website. Enjoy this gorgeous day!
