About Tony L

Back in the late 1990's, Greenpoint was the first New York City neighborhood that I aimlessly walked through and I immediately fell in love with it. I've lived in Greenpoint now for over a decade and I still love it for both its new additions and older, timeless qualities.

    calling a homeless shelter “Greenpoint’s least favorite place ever” is bullshit and bourgeois snobbery at its worst.

      that is not based on greenpointers’ personal opinion (we believe local homeless shelters are extremely important) – it is based on the millions of negative comments we receive when we post about anything to do with the homeless shelters in the area. have you attended meetings with regards to the shelters? would not use the term bourgeois there.
