At roughly 2pm today a fire ignited along the side of the Jefferson St. station entrance, burning away at years of trash that has gathered in a gap between the entrance and neighboring building. The FDNY was quick to handle the situation. So far no terrorist organization has laid claim to the blaze.
Factory Fresh opened its doors last night with its newest gathering of work entitled SEENOEVILSEENOEVILSEE EVIL featuring the art of Jeremiah Maddock, Daniel Trocchio and Amanda Wong. Its a fine collection indeed and moderately pried at that; certainly worth taking a look.
On some streets in Bushwick leaving a car unattended is like leaving a penny in a glass of cola. This little yellow car appeared on Jefferson St between Wyckoff and Irving a week ago, its window smashed and stereo removed. Then came the piranhas. The wheels were soon taken and then the hood. Tags began appearing on the cars exterior. The engine was next to go, to be replaced with bags of garbage. Now the front seats are gone along with much of the interior and Scooby Doo sits behind the wheel peering at passer-byers.
At around 5:30 this afternoon the people of Bushwick were caught off guard by the sudden appearance of a tornado as it tore down the streets bringing howling winds, blinding rain and a wave of debris. Many trees have been torn from the ground. Facades of some buildings have been stripped from their frames. Many of the cars are now pockmarked from the assault of flying objects. It seems that Maria Hernandez Park has suffered the most damage and has been half destroyed.
If you didn't hear about it you must not be paying attention. The first-annual Bushwick Block Party, smack dab in the middle of morgan town, had a special guest who brought a little hip-hop to Moore St.
Maybe not everybody is looking forward to the facebook movie.
