Gothamist did a sneak peek on The Habitat. I took a peek inside last week as well and it looks small but cute. It’s a little kitschy, but I like that so I’ll definitely check it out when it opens.

How Do You Walk? – Pratt student and 8 year Greenpointer Kathleen Scully is doing a a class study on walking.

 

I’m, interested in people here whom walk, part, some,or all of their distance to work, even a short walk to the G train, to those who walk over the Pulaski Bridge, or to the L on Bedford. 

I’m interested in what they carry, what they wear, if they walk with someone, or alone, if it’s done for exercise, or convenience, is it cost effective, safe, etc.
