On the heels of the news that Greenpoint housing sale prices had the biggest percentage increase in all of Brooklyn last year, and that the opening of the local Sbux is now official, we turn to a tour of McGuinness Boulevard with the Dogshit Queen of Greenpoint. Her Highness writes:
The way I see it, McGuinness Boulevard epitomizes what is so wrong, yet so right about Greenpoint. Like a whore past its prime, this throughfare is highly-trafficked, noisy, and more often than not, filthy. But (under the right circumstances) it does have its charm. Have you ever witnessed a 40-something couple who— man and woman alike— bore a strange resemblance to Barry Manilow making out in front of a Hess Station? I have.We warn you that the development tour of and commentary about the McGuinness Boulevard wonderland includes a number of pictures of actual crap. Also, whatever you do, do not look at this Barbie knockoff thing. It's got nothing to do with development or real estate.
