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?

With Cafe Bambi Dead in the Water, New ‘Elevated Gastropub’ Concept Pitched for 107 Eldridge Street

It appears that the ever-delayed Cafe Bambi concept is on ice. Jack Abramcyk (kid brother of nightlife impresario Matt) had planned a bilevel nightspot at 107 Eldridge Street despite an outpouring of opposition. Funny, considering the unopened concept even found its way onto Grub St’s top 20 openings of 2014. Until the end of last […]

    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 …)
