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.

If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!

Hunting for something special at flea markets is always fun, but add in a cornhole tournament and you really have nothing better to do this Saturday. But wait, add in the chance to be on national television for the taping of the hit tv show Flea Market Flip and you should be running to catch the G to Long Island City.
The cornhole tournament will be happening all day at LIC Flea, so come and test your tossing skills. The winner will walk away with their very own cornhole set, $100 to spend at the flea, FREE beer from LIC based Rockaway Brewery and other great prizes. Sign up for your spot in the tournament here.

Can I just first say how much I love Bushwick Daily (our unofficial sister blog) and its founder Katarina Hybenova (amazing woman) and how stoked I was to find out she was co-publishing a book with Catopolis called Bushwick Nightz - short stories about Bushwick. I am proud to be holding a physical copy of this book in my hands and am excited to let you know the book launch is happening tonight at Lot 45 (411 Troutman St.) at 7pm. Tickets: $10 (includes a book) at the door and the first 75 peeps get a free glass of champagne. Continue reading →
“It is with the deepest sorrow we have ever experienced that we report to you that our precious Peter Spear’s body was found and we have identified it. We are together as a family and lovingly supported by friends. The community of love that came together around Peter was a testament to how he cared for each of us. We know that you love Peter and that you love us and want to help. As needs arise we will not hesitate to reach out. Please continue to pray for us. No arrangements have been made yet. We will share those details as plans go forward.”
Our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this difficult time.
