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.
Seems like no matter where I go I see one of Chris Uphues’ happy heart wheat pastes. I’m not complaining. Bright and colorful with big dark eyes – they make my brain happy!
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!
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break! Start your engines… Now things get real for the holidays!
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
