No, it’s not Google Street View, they’re my own pictures and I only take them when there’s no cars or as few as possible because I think it uglifies the scene.
I think I’m just going to make this a recurring post of corners.

Random chunks of disintegration on the Northside of Brooklyn.
Posted in Greenpoint
While running errands on the Upper East Side for my job, I stopped for a moment and looked up and saw this giant grid of windows and A/C units and thought to myself, “This is why I live in Brooklyn”.
On my way out the door this morning, not fully awake, the letters “WTF” pop into my head as my mind incorrectly makes me think the first snow has fallen. And then I think of the film sets that have created snow on our streets in the past. But to nobody’s surprise, our lovely village of Greenpoint, Brooklyn is covered in a shit ton o’ litter. Someone’s recyclable shredded paper got blown across a block of Nassau Avenue and will surely be around to haunt us for the next couple of days before the wind gracefully takes it to the ocean.
Good luck getting anywhere in that thing, yo.
When I say interesting, I kinda mean creepy.

It’s still better than just a lonely old tree stump.

New Yorkers seem to hate hipsters the way that the rest of America hates black people. I found this edit to be funny, but at the same time, I’d rather live with hipsters than the blank-faced zombies that were born and raised here and hate everything new and/or young. Residents in Greenpoint seem to think they are the enemy, instead of focusing on gangsters, thugs, alcoholic homeless men, land developers, billionaire mayors, and yourselves who shop at Target, Costco & Walmart (hey, you saving some money on child-made clothing put those mom & pop shops out of business, not hipsters). Ya doity rats.
One of my commuting from work bus stops. On Jackson Avenue, Queens using the Camera + App and then Color Splash App, all done by the time I get off the bus. Makes the trip faster, too.
Sometimes I like to get high and take pictures of old ass roads.
I love old cobblestone roads and hate to see them covered with inferior materials like asphalt. I also like how the streets have a 90 degree angle pattern except where there are intersections and a more circular pattern is used.
