This Rx sign is right outside a now-bodega near dupont and manhattan. Had to block some people coming into the place to get this shot -- that's why it's so shiny.

I thought about croping out the trash, but it adds a little. Hard to get the whole floor since this place (an old children's clothing store?) has been closed behind a gate for months. There was a fire some weekend morning in 2005. Mahattan & Norman.

Look at that happy corn! I have gotten really used to having cheap non-yuppie tortillas as a staple of the GP diet. There weren't as many Mexicans here a few years back, but there are more and more in the neighborhood these days. This is certainly good news for restaurants & delis. Mahattan & Norman.

Over on the other side of McGuinness, this apartment ends a residential street right by a huge bakery. There is also a great view of L.I.C. down the street. Russell & Meserole?

These apartments must have a lot of nice nooks by the window.

This is an old factory on West. I have no idea what they used to make. There's a good chance they'll knock it down to build the massive "luxury apartment complexes".

I passed this building nearly every day for four years before I noticed this writing. There's always a little junk hardware flea market running out of it on the weekends. Nassau & Lorimer.

Got this shot from *inside* the citibank atm my friend was taking money out of (why? they're total thieves!). The North Fork Bank nee the Greenpoint bank branch's building on Calyer & Mahattan is beautiful & full of marble. I'll take pictures of the inside soon.

Fantastic sign. I don't think this photo does it justice, but it may have to do. All the other ones I snapped were too dark. Was it a clothing store? I think so. Manhattan & Greenpoint. What a great turquiose!

This is right in plain sight for most greenpointers, with close proximity to the Garden, with all foods hard to get in your local deli (though you'd be crazy not to buy the local bread-- $1.00 for Warsaw Bakery's rye loaf). Mahattan & Greenpoint, but the Kent St. side.
