Neighborhood Watch: Oily Greenpoint Gets Festive

New, 1 comment

Ah, irony. What would life be without it? For instance, it turns out that ExxonMobil, which is responsible for the horrific and huge oil spill bubbling under part of Greenpoint, has helped finance the spiffy new LED Christmas lights on Manhattan Avenue. In all fairness, so have other companies and politicians, but they're not as funny: "Exxon is one of the folks ponying up the dough for these bad boys...given the sheer environmental havoc this company has wreaked on our community and the fact that petrol is going for a pretty penny these days I would have expected something more akin to Dyker fucking Heights bathing our main drag in retina-searing glory."
