About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!

    I have to commend the parks department for quickly cleaning the mcgolrick park monitor memorial, which was so viciously defaced this past week. I wonder who would stoop to such a low as to vandalize that beautiful memorial.
