Sighting: Excuse Me, Is That Your Parking Space?by on
I learned this morning that the enormous barge/crane rig that has been anchored between the India Street/East River Ferry and the Greenpoint Avenue/Transmitter Park piers since last Friday is actually just parking. The rig belongs to a crew securing the East River Manhattan shoreline and is parked in Greenpoint for security reasons while the UN is in session–to return to the other side of the river once the politicians and international dignitaries return to their homelands, which may be as late as December, when the scheduled UN General Assembly plenary and related meetings wrap up.
Note: This information comes from Luis, the security guard who works on the India Street pier.
Seen, heard or smelled something disconcerting in the Greenpoint/Williamsburg neighborhood? Tell us about it.
