When the curtains fell to reveal a wrap around glass front building at 79 Franklin St (at Noble St) in Greenpoint, many residents wondered and dreaded what would open up there. A few of the predictions were American Apparel, Blue Bottle, Brooklyn Industries, laser tag, a roller disco and Trader Joe’s. Soon signs reading “Brooklyn Expo” were hung in the windows.

On a recent Friday night I visited two art shows that both opened on Greenpoint Ave. Both artists, Maj Anya DeBear and Roxanne Palmer mentioned that honesty was one driving force behind their recent artworks. While being true to oneself creatively in a hard to please art world is difficult to attain, the resulting satisfaction and confidence that came through made for two stand-out openings on either side of McGuinness Blvd. Continue reading
When I get up in the wee morning and do a quick #greenpoint search on Twitter, I’m prepared for anything – fires, hit and runs, and other horrible things – but thankfully my jaw drop this am wasn’t cause by a tragedy – unless missing out on a celebrity PACKED show at Saint Vitus Bar, with Joan Jett singing for Nirvana is a tragedy in your world.

Tonight the Diamond Bar (43 Franklin St) is upping the beer game in Greenpoint with a one time only Super Duper Taps event where you can try some insane and out there beer you won’t find anywhere else, like a secret cask from a brand new brewery.
This is what Dave, Diamond owner and beer genius, had to say: Continue reading
There will be plenty of delicious sweet snacks and finds at our Spring Market this Sunday! Here are picks from a few featured vendors:
I’d heard the name but admittedly didn’t know who Taylor Swift is and somehow managed not to knowingly listen to her music. Are you a fan? Aside from Lena Dunham, main stream pop culture isn’t on Greenpoint’s map, but a show on view at Fowler Project Space titled “Who’s Taylor Swift Anyway?” seeks “to explore our relationship to celebrity through embodiments of the pop-fictional character, Taylor Swift.” Now I know.
At the opening there were paintings and interactive art installations. I instagrammed “D” the dog with a donut (#iamtaylorswift) while cruelly not letting her eat the art. The catchy tunes on repeat were familiar and got stuck in my head. I hate that! The night was capped off with this performance by Chris Tyler, who doesn’t need an introduction. Just watch.
When we first started these markets, there weren’t any baby vendors in site… oh how we have grown in just a few years. There will be plenty of cute baby stuff for your own little ones at our Spring Market this Sunday. If you aren’t preggers, I bet you know someone who is and we the have perfect baby shower gifts, plus we guarantee the market will be more fun than registry shopping at Babies R’ Us (shudder). See you Sunday!
Make sure to stop by these featured vendors:
