Siding City

March 27th, 2012

Certain sections of Greenpoint and Williamsburg are infamous for the ubiquitous vinyl- and aluminum-sided houses that line their streets. While these buildings are often rather bland and featureless, I think they also possess a certain humble, homely charm, particularly when they branch out along the color spectrum. Buildings like the one pictured above — where you see some loftier architectural elements poking out through the siding — are especially endearing, in my opinion (we saw another nice example of this back in January). For a good sampling of Greenpoint siding, just start right here and take a stroll down Newel Street.

    I like this, I think it’s pretty. The trees in full bloom make it that much more charming.
