"Cookin' in Brooklyn" is the best sign in Brooklyn. Cute little building. I've never been out here when it's been open but I hope to get some shots of the place lit up. (By "out here" I mean Greenpoint Ave almost at the bridge over Newtown Creek.)

I stood there for a while to get a shot with no cars in it but in the end I kind of like the way the blurs came out.

Yams on the G

I have no idea why there would be four random yams on the subway platform.

It's a funny thing about street art that an old piece can suddenly stand out to you as though it's new, and a new piece can look like it's been there forever. That said, I really feel like this is new, but if it's not, that's OK because it's beautifully done. It looks almost like it was done in chalk first and then colored in, but what you can't see in the detail photo is that it's not chalky, it's like some kind of paint stick or something.

As for the artist, that one name looks like Faile, which is common in this neighborhood, although not for this kind of work. Also, I read here that one of the Faile members went to school in Minneapolis.

This is on the Mill Building. Wythe near N3rd.

Urban Green condos? 142 N. 6th? I thought they meant the "7 Berry" building but I think that address is actually this big hole between N5th and N6th.

It has glass. Hard to imagine this is only half as high as it's going to be. It already looks tall. It's going to look freakishly tall.

Speaking of N6th...

No real scoop here other than to note that the work being done involves renovating an eating & drinking establishment, so we can expect another place to eat on N6th.

Speaking of new places to eat on that block...

I know better than to hold my breath for the opening of Alia, but it seems noteworthy that they've got a new sign and these new benches out front.

As much as I love the way the Empire State Building looks over everything that happens on this lot, I don't think the composition accommodates it well. (Although I don't feel so strongly about that that I won't include that framing as well.)

This is from the Greenpoint Ave. bridge. It probably has a name but I don't know it. For what it's worth, the focus in the Coral Queen photos held up well for the larger size views.

What's amazing is that the dumpster was surely painted somewhere else long ago and put here relatively recently for whatever job is being dumped into it.
Calyer St., Greenpoint, Brooklyn

If you click the photo it takes you to my Flickr account and should give you a number of size options for download.
