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?

The Falafel Shop on Rivington Takes a ‘Maintenance’ Break, Should Return Next Week

You may have noticed that the Falafel Shop on Rivington Street wasn’t open all week. An explanation as to why didn’t actually materialize until yesterday. According to a laminate on the shuttered gate, the popular four-year-old Mediterranean joint closed for routine “maintenance,” but should reopen “middle of next week. Eyal Tov founded the Falafel Shop […]

In Which a Hell Square Egg Toss Turns Violent

There is a sense among some that Hell Square is regressing to its former violent self after a brief period of baby-step progress. No more, claim neighbors in the DMZ. Case in point was a rowdy incident this past Monday night (late) involving a crew of revelers outside the Hotel Indigo. A tipster tells us that […]

The City is About to Screw the LES Waterfront Again with this 1,000-Foot Tower

The city will screw the Lower East Side waterfront by allowing this 1,000-foot tower to proceed. Indeed, the Department of City Planning reversed course this week, and will now hear the case for this monstrosity. This despite the ongoing litigation over the contested few parcels on the backside of Extell’s One Manhattan Square. It’s certainly a […]

St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street is Dead, for Real This Time

Okay, so now it’s really happened. Again. The reincarnated St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street – also known as Rivington F+B – is officially kaput. This past Wednesday was its final night in business. The gates are now shuttered for good, capping a decade (including a year-long hiatus) for the establishment. The closure follows two months […]

MTA Brushes off Vehement Local Opposition to ‘Gracias Mama’ Entrance on Rutgers Street

The MTA sees nothing wrong with having a restaurant entrance mere feet from a bustling subway station. Specifically that of Gracias Mama, whose principals (Koorosh Bakhtiar and Nima Garos) are trying to alter their method of operation, which could become a harbinger of overcrowding in a small area. The bold choice to move the front […]

    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 …)
