Stoops Out Lights On
What's interesting about this block in Park Slope is that virtually the entire side of the street consists of brownstones that have had their stoops removed, entrances placed at ground level and these concrete bench/tree planters placed in front. They also all have the same light fixtures. The opposite side of the street has many similar buildings as well. There are some variances amongst them but at ground level they are all pretty much the same. If memory serves me correctly, this is St John's Place. Anyone know the story?

Time for a New Chair
Sometimes you just know when it's time to get new furniture. Other times you resist and hold off as long as you can- "if I just throw a pillow over the spring that's sticking out of the couch, it's as good as new". This chair has seen better days but it certainly has good bones beneath all that ripped fabric (what the hell happened to it?). As seen on President St.- appropriately enough- today on President's Day.

Fourth Ave Big Clouds
Some surreal clouds looking down 4th Avenue (I don't have to mention it's at 8th St. do I?). You can see the minimal progress so far on The Argyle luxury condo building on the near left. Two floors so far. Some have likened Fourth Ave as the Park Ave. of Brooklyn, but it's not exactly there yet.. maybe in 10 years. maybe never. Probably never, it has it's own unique and developing character. It's closer to the Bowery right now than anything.

Park Slope School Bus Graffiti Truck
Saturday, February 09, 2008
The open lot next door to the Iglesia Pentacostal La Biblia Inc. (Inc?!) is being developed into condos. 10 units to be exact. I would assume based on looking at the lot's width and location at 701 Union Street between 4th and 5th Avenues that it would be 5 stories of 2 units per floor. 10 stories of floorthroughs seems unlikely to me although presumably they have air rights from the church.Here's the guys putting up the sign. Excavation has already begun as of a few weeks ago.

Best picture- there's the trophy... who's number one?!
