exhibit opening at City Reliquary!


The show will feature documents and artifacts from the 1930s, when immigrant Meyer Parodneck and a handful of anti-poverty activists founded the Consumer-Farmer Milk Cooperative to ensure farmers received a fair price, and consumers paid a fair price, for milk. The Co-op played a pivotal role opening the market controlled by milk distribution giants. With their own processing plants and distribution stations, the Consumer-Farmer Co-op sold milk to consumers at the lowest possible price, and paid farmers the highest possible return, for nearly fifty years. Overcoming a mountain of obstacles, this organization made a difference to hundreds of struggling farmers and to the children of low-income New Yorkers.

The exhibition includes period Co-op newsletters and advertising campaigns, vintage paper milk containers, and cooperative movement propaganda. Pivotal moments in the Co-op’s story are illustrated with miniature dioramas.

The reception is free and open to the public with refreshments courtesy of Peanut Butter Company (locally produced and salmonella free!).

From Gothamist (who got it from Curbed)

The mysterious case of The Penistrator—an unidentified “snowfitti” vandal who’s been drawing phallic symbols on snowy cars parked in the East Village this winter—has taken a shocking, unexpected turn. EV Grieve, who regrets that he lacks the “resources to properly track this fiend,” has learned that the perpetrator may be none other than Sixth Sense star and NYU student Haley Joel Osment. TMZ posted this photo of a snow-fingered Osment earlier this month, with the headline “I See D***, People.” Guess we can close the file on that one!

So we were watching Arrested Development today

So we were watching the episode caled “Pubic Relations” and I got so pissed that I couldn’t identify what else I had seen the actress who played the Klimpy’s waitress in. (No matter how many times I write that sentence it comes out sounding wrong. fuck it.) And fuck you, IMDB for not having her listed in the episode’s cast.

After some more googling, I found out where she’s from.


Her name is Becky Thyre

BROOKLYN 11211. this one reports on development and happenings in williamsburg, greenpoint, and bushwick. it’s kind of like newyorkshitty with fewer pictures and more neighborhood news and politics. i liked this picture of redhook and the reports on bk bikelanes.

How to Stump Anti-Abortionists With One Question

Saw this blog post and thought it was an interesting angle on the abortion issue.  Basically, no protesters havea  good answer to “If abortion was illegal, what should be done with the women who have illegal abortions?”

Blog of the day: New York Shitty
I like this blog because it features dog shit and general happenings around my neighborhood and others in BK (but mostly Greenpoint). Here is the about page…


As you can probably deduce from the title of this blog, I live in Green Brownpoint, Brooklyn. During my one block trek to the Franklin Corner Store one April day (in 2006) to get a sandwich, I was astonished at the sheer quantity of dog shit I encountered.

Green Street is not the easiest sidewalk to negotiate: the sidewalks are uneven and pock-marked with holes. Dodging piles of dog shit every five feet does not make this task any easier, much less when carrying delicious Cuban sandwiches. It was during this adventure through Poopland that I had the following epiphany:

1. This is ridiculous.

2. I wonder if the people who see fit to use my block as a pissoir would like it if I took a shit in the middle of their living room? Probably not.

3. This is like walking through a fucking mine field, so maybe…

4. if Queen Noor (and Lady Diana before her)  can lobby against the use of land mines, perhaps I can raise awareness about the plague of unattended dog shit in my neighborhood. Call me the Dog Shit Queen of Greenpoint New York Shitty. I’ve been called worse.

What you can expect this blog to feature:

1. Dog shit. When I see dog shit I will:

A. Take a picture of it
B. Make note of the date and the location of said bowel movement

2. Generate “Crap Maps” as I see fit. These maps will reflect the data I compile (as outlined in #1) and will (hopefully) provide an easy reference for anyone who wants to know where worst (s)hit areas are— and perhaps even where the worst offenders live. It is prudent to assume that if these dog owners are too lazy to clean up their own dog shit, they probably do not take much time walking their dogs in the first place.

3. If and/or when I find a particularly choice specimen (READ: a particularly LARGE, sculptural or just plain repulsive bowel movement), it will be showcased as “The Dung of the Day”.

I am accepting submissions from the public. Greenpoint, Park Slope (as if), Williamsburg, Bushwick, Sunset Park, Bay Ridge, Red Hook (especially Red Hook— I like Red Hook almost as much as I like Greenpoint!) or anywhere else in New York Shitty.

It’s much more than dogshit though, it’s funny signs, featured restaurants, neighborhood gossip, cat photos, etc.

LOVE this dress and yay for Jason Wu

It’s a Cinderella story.  In the Advocate, Wu says dressing Michelle was a “long shot.”  Aw he is so young and great and Michelle looked BEAUTIFUL.  Also in just one day, Michelle Obama wore stuff made by a Cuban-American woman and a 26 year old gay Asian dude.  Minorities, CHECK!

im re-loving this movie

I saw Cradle Will Rock when it first came out in the late 90s and I don’t think I knew who Jack Black or Tenacious D was.  The movie is on channel 11 right now- everyone should watch or netflix or something. I’m hungover and enjoying my couch time jfyi.

We evacuated the plane together and were standing near each other on the starboard wing. I thought I saw you glance in my direction a couple times and I thought you were really cute, but I wasn’t brave enough to say hello and besides, you were listening to your iPod and I didn’t want to interrupt. I was the guy with the orange flotation vest and Gucci loafers. Tell me what color my tie was. Next time we crash land, I will get up the nerve to say hello!

A nice article how our dining scene is picking up. Too bad they spell Capitol Hill wrong at one point and no one refers to H St. as Lower Capitol Hill. I’ve eated at Gillian Clark’s old restraunt and it had a lot of annoying rules and signs, but the eggs were amazing.
