Timeshare Backyard Waste of Water?

Posted on: August 18th, 2011 at 11:12 am by

The Timeshare Backyard is a brilliant lesson in irking neighbors and contributing to the already overbearing noise problem on Ludlow Street.  It’s also a great way to “waste water” as one Boogie reader puts it.  Puppy’s Blog captions this photo submission by saying, “time share backyard in LES: wasting water since 2011.”

The hydrant hookup was presumably to fuel the Slip ‘n’ Slide, or just to water the fresh green lawn.  Either way, how do you feel about this grand experiment in Ludlow Street suburbia?

Someone Trashed the Blueprints for the Ace Hotel Bowery on the Sidewalk

Trash is sometimes treasure. Everyone knows that 225 Bowery is to become the newest Ace Hotel in the stable. However, the company never officially confirmed their intentions here. Even as the transformative construction work atop the building proceeds. Well, official blueprints trashed on Chrystie Street late Tuesday night all but confirm this. We had received […]

    if you wanna party like you live in the burbs, go back there.  this weird context for nostalgia is sick.  plus, i had to leave my apartment because of the noise.  remember, the cia uses over amped music to drive people crazy.  now theses dummies are doing the same thing.  very insulting to the neighbors.  on the upside, I’ve decided to throw my trash over their fence.  this is war.

    God people will complain about anything. This is a fun way to use a vacant lot, the amount of water this could possibly use is trivial, and if you don’t have a way to cope with noise in this neighborhood, you should move. I am sure all of these people paying $395 a month for a two bedroom rent stablized place really feel their entitlement has suffered, but aside from makeshift flea markets hanging on the fence out front no one from the “community” has ever done anything here. 
    I live in this hood by the way, and contacted these guys to try to rent the lot, but the gig ends in August so it isn’t going to work out. And whiners can have their precious vacant lot back in September. Everybody happy now? (I’m guessing not, but one can hold out hope …)
