Investigating the Banker St “Golden Nugget” Triangle & Animal-Shaped Children’s Sandwiches: Sun (2/17)

Ever wonder about that little triangle of land on Nassau in Greenpoint with the “Golden Nugget” RV on it? And who the hell lives in there? You can meet the “caretaker” this Sunday!

Center For Investigative Research, “an ad-hoc collective dedicated to searching out the true facts and deeper meanings behind everyday phenomena in Brooklyn and beyond,” is hosting a salon on Sunday February 17th, 2013 at Diamond (43 Franklin St) from 5-7pm, which aims to answer all your questions.

The invitation reads:

“The tiny triangle of land bordered by Banker Street, Nassau Ave, and North 15th, at the border between Williamsburg and Greenpoint, is an enduring Northside mystery.  A sea of old-world chaos in the midst of a plague-like profusion of high-end beer gardens, supermummy sanatoriums, yoga studios, and Apple-product saturated co-working spaces, this tiny space beckons the passerby with a nostalgic, disorganized filth all but absent in today’s Brooklyn. While the “Golden Nugget” sign on what appears to be a food wagon hints as some comestible design, the deeper story has remained tantalizingly elusive—until now.

Come meet the caretaker of this semi-conscious urban installation, and hear about his ambitious plans for a restaurant serving animal-shaped children’s sandwiches, plexiglass-clad indoor ice-rinks, and an Azerbaijani spit-roasted lamb festival.  While we cannot tell you his name, you can be sure his raconteuring skills are legend…”
