While serving our civic duty of sitting in a room full of strangers for jury duty, our view was of the latest construction rumblings going on in downtown Brooklyn.
We know that this construction project on the corner of Spring and Mulberry is years, maybe even decades in the making.
But that corner lot will always be known to us as a good place for junkies to pee in, because that’s what we used to see going on it in when it was a parking lot. Now a different set of junkies will eventually move in and they will get to pee in it. America!
Below is a photo of some of Brooklyn’s
best absolute worst architecture.
The architect must have been going with a “let’s get an oversize lunar module to take a dump on an early 20th Century single family home” sort of look with it. This house sits along E 12th Street, just off of Avenue R, and has looked like this for years. Nothing like a neighbor taking a literal dump on the landscape to brighten up a neighborhood.
Plus, the deep freeze and snow began to make us feel as though it was worth it to pay an arm and a leg for two slices of pizza, but it was closed, so we had a delicious goat dish from a nearby Pakistani spot. Delish!
This is quite possibly the worst view from Brooklyn. It highlights the toxic Gowanus superfund site in the foreground, with the F/G train above Smith Street, which makes Brooklyn appear to be northern New Jersey – ICK!
Oddly enough, it is a mere stones throw away from one of the most iconic views of Brooklyn.
