#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!

CSI Rentals Brooklyn will also feature a full stock of expendables needed for photo and video shoots including a full line of seamless paper, foam boards, gaffers tapes, gels etc.

Crazy Brooklyn Deli Sandwich Signs

Nassau Ave & McGuinness Blvd
Graham Ave
Somewhere in Bushwick

We tend to tune out signage because it’s in our face and everywhere but on closer look we can discover interesting collages with distorted and out of proportion deli meats or utterly strange images like singing hams.
