As I stepped out onto my fire escape to survey the destruction next door, something sitting in my very own backyard caught my eye.
My camera isn't great, but I hope you can see that what you're looking at is a homemade toilet. A standard toilet seat mounted on top of some sort of bucket. It even looks like there's a box of reading material sitting next to it. Cozy, no?
Who is pooping in this thing? This isn't situated in a private area of the yard. Something like 15 apartments look out into this courtyard, not to mention the construction guys on the roof.
More destructo-porn after the jump.
The cabbage factory is coming down fast. Yesterday a giant beam hit the ground so hard, my neighbor—who was showering at the time—said her tub jumped about six inches into the air. Can't wait til they start pile-driving. Good times ahead!
Also, isn't the McCarren Park Mews coming along nicely? I can only hope they'll keep it that nice aqua color so we can have our own version of Julian Schnabel's Pepto Bismol building. Unlike those uptight West Villagers, I think Williamsburg would welcome a colorful alternative to the glass and Fedders fug that's taken over the hood.
