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?

Here is the Ron English ‘All American Temper Tot’ on the Bowery Graffiti Wall

That was quick. The Bowery graffiti wall is already sheathed in its new mural. In a matter of hours yesterday, artist Ron English rolled on his wheat-paste creation to the year-long-stagnating wall at the corner of East Houston. It’s called the “All American Temper Tot,” and features the hulkish green baby (i.e. the Temper Tot) […]

Touring the Creepy Abandoned Hospital Complex on Ellis Island [PHOTOS]

Creepy. Cold. Intense. Haunted. All apt adjectives to describe the unused section of Ellis Island designated as ruins. It is on the south side of this national park – straddling the state lines of New York and New Jersey – that a maze-like collection of twenty-nine buildings sits. Rotting away from the inside out. Indeed, […]

Contra Guys Will Open the Casual ‘Wildair’ on Orchard Street Next Month

Around this time last year, Contra scored the go-ahead from Community Board 3 to open a casual, “creative American” restaurant at 94 Allen Street. It was to be a place more approachable than the OG spot. Those plans ultimately hit a dead-end (F18 Gallery opened there instead), though, and owners Jeremiah Stone and Fabian Von […]

Bluebird’s Alex Hall Swaps Rosella for Brunswick on Clinton Street

This month in identity crises, one Lower East Side coffee shop has decided to change its name. Bluebird principal Alex Hall opened Rosella exactly one year ago at 23 Clinton Street. Competition here is fierce, given the number of java joints within spitting distance (that would be five). The Australian-born Hall ultimately decided to scrap […]

After a Year of Inactivity, Ron English is the Next Artist to Paint the Bowery Graffiti Wall

The mobile boom was rolled into place beside the freshly-constructed Bowery graffiti wall early yesterday morning. In covering this slab for years, this is the surest signal that a change of the guard is in the cards. Indeed, the next entrant is already at bat to paint a mural here. Acclaimed street artist Ron English has […]

    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 …)
