Old Streeteasy

So while everyone is crying about Streeteasy being dead to them since Zillow bought it, I'm still using it as if nothing changed.

I really hate that it's been watered it down and all of the amazing brains that created it and made it what it is are no longer part of the company, but I'm going to keep using this link until it's dead.

I can assure you that once it's dead though, I'm dropping my paid subscription and telling everyone I know to do the same. I can get all the information that I got from Streeteasy without it, I just prefer to use it the way that I used to.

Wake up Zillow. If you want to keep us, allow paid users to access the old site forever. 

To close with a popular cliche in the construction world, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Tribeca? Pssssssssht! Don't waste your money!

I know How to Spend It and the FT definitely won't cover this one!
Blow your wad in Prospect Park! $2628/sf Give me a fucking break! I don't even get to look at real photos in the listing or read original copy!

I feel bad giving this listing any publicity at all because the price is so absolutely ridiculous, but you know, borkers [sic] gotta eat too!

You say Car-NAY-gee, I say CAR-neh-gee...

. . .We both can agree this renovation has been going on FOREVER!

Totally Taboo!

Do I love carpenter artifacts or what! When I used to be a carpenter I always left something behind in the walls so the next guy to open that wall up would have something to talk about on his lunch break. Gotta love the porno mag in the wall, especially when the kink is dialed up as much as this one!

Now this bus says party!

How do you make your pickles so juicy!

It's funny that the logo for the "Pearl Pickle Maker" has a logo that looks an awful lot like "Dick Keeper" if you look at it the right way!

LK Mallfucka!

Ganglife is alive in Harlem. I think that the Latin Kings were the first gang that I actually heard someone besides a rapper talk about. Other than that, I think I learned most of what I knew about gangs from listening to Cypress Hill.

It's surprising the resources that are out there about rappers and their gang affiliation. A lot of it overlaps and a lot of it is conflicting, but if you just look here, here and here you'll learn a lot!

Pot 'o Gold

If you build it, the will come.

I'm going to say it because everyone else seems to fucking vilify the man. Bruce Ratner has done more to help Brooklyn become what it is today more than anyone else.

I'm no fashonista...

But this #maxxinista looks like she had a #maxxipadinista explosion due to an improperly placed scarf! Now that it's getting cold, ladies, please take care to watch the placement of your scarf!

Happy Columbus Day!

Happy Columbus Day! Why don't you fail at your marketing campaign and simultanously make it sound like you're making fun of Italians!

Next time I see an Italian person something stupid, #twitaly.

Come and get it!

Believe it or not, there was nothing worth taking. That means a lot because I've been nicknamed "Sanford and Son" in the past!

I didn't know that there were enough Polish Asbestos abatement workers that buildings in NYC are posted in English, Spanish and Polish.

Handle with care

They will give your package the extra special service is deserves.

Who on earth though this logo was a good idea?!

Plumbers shouldn't bite their nails.

Although this guy looks like he had a healthy diet of lead paint as a child.

Now that I'm working for a different company, Construction Graffiti photos are a lot more rare. Amazingly, nothing has really changed. The spelling still sucks.

Is Peter North a partner?

There's got to be a movie with the same title as this company somewhere.
I imagine there may be a cameo by this guy. Big n' Speedy! File both of these under Engrish.

Just hanging out

Looks like another big mess on 57th Street! If they don't get this taken care of stat, and The National Weather Service is right, this thing is going to turn into a wrecking ball!

I guess the one year anniversary came a little early this year!

NYDN Graffiti - Thanks for nothing!

Looks like the New York Daily News just woke up and took a walk on a construction site! Clearly research is not a priority of the professional journalist these days. A simple Google search for construction graffiti would have opened your eyes to the fact that this exists. Shit, I even did that before I started my blog! The guy who copied my blog did the same thing before he started his blog (to steal all my photos!)


"The soaring symbol of American resilience now bears the markings of lowlifes. The graffiti looms over the 16-acre site in lower Manhattan where more than 2,800 people of all colors and creeds died — victims of an attack directed at the heart of American ideals."

Give me a fucking break...

I love the anonymous "worker" who was quoted saying that it's difficult to walk into WTC 1. Who was this "worker?" Clearly he doesn't work in this industry.

And the also anonymous "insider" saying "this is pretty bad stuff." Get the fuck out of here. You aren't an insider if you think this is pretty bad stuff.

Oh yeah, ask the French tourist their opinion! OMG! So disgusting! I think the French person who drew this is disgusting, but hilarious!

You wouldn't have your soaring fucking symbol of American resilience without all of these "lowlifes." Here's a great idea - you EXPOSE all of the racism, sexism, and crude behaviour of construction workers. Start here and go to all the sites with active permits. Call me when you're done.

In the meantime, you've motivated me to start posting again!

Thanks to @jarak to bringing this to my attention.
