This week, we’re introducing you to a new food series called Drunkpointers, which highlights the after-ten p.m. eats you can get in Greenpoint when you’re drunk and hungry. First stop: Jimmy’s Diner
The thing is, you think you want pizza when you’re drunk, right? And you do. But give your drunk stomach a little variety sometimes. A sandwich will help soak up the (admittedly delicious and seemingly innocuous) lethal tequila-watermelon punch you just gulped down at Broken Land. And maybe what you really need is some protein so you don’t pass out (at least, for an hour). Continue reading →
It’s always good to end the year with a bang, so I am extremely excited to announce that Greenpointers is sold!
Julia Moak, a native New Yorker and Greenpoint resident is the new Owner of Greenpointers. Please welcome her aboard!
There was quite a bit of interest in this sale from other local publishers and talented creative teams. But in order to keep the soul of this business alive and its neighborly point of view in tact, I was hoping to find a community minded individual who has a vested interest in Greenpoint. I found Julia.
Over brunch at Five Leaves’ amazing House Made Ricotta, I found Julia to be intelligent, enthusiastic, energetic and full of great ideas for Greenpointers. She comes from a technology start-up background, so look forward to updates and improvements on the website. Julia strongly values the arts and local businesses and does most of her socializing in the 11222, so I’m sure you will see her around town. And meet Julia at the next Greenpointers Valentine’s Market on Sunday February 8th! Hopefully she will bring along her “jorkie” pup Ella, too.
When I bought Greenpointers from Justine three years ago you gave me a chance and have been incredibly supportive since. Thank you. I have been profoundly touched by this community and so many talented amazing individuals who call Greenpoint home. I’ve been able to do things I’d never imagined I could, like the Gasper & Son documentary among countless other creative projects and events. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I will remain a huge fan and supporter of Greenpointers and I hope you do, too. I look forward to seeing what Julia creates and feel confident that with the support of readers and the community she can bring Greenpointers to the next level!
And I couldn’t think of a better morning to announce it because after yesterday’s election recreational marijuana is now legal here. While that is a respectable reason to move across the country, it isn’t the exact reason why I am now here. My husband Jon took a position as City Forester in Corvallis and our dreams have come true to go to hot springs and hikes every weekend and be around big beautiful trees. Can you tell I am happy?
I lived the last 33 years – my entire life – in NYC and it was time to move on. But Greenpoint will always be the home I return to. In fact, I’ll be back in a few weeks for our Holiday Market (12/7) and to screen our “Gasper & Son” Neon Documentary. I’m stoked to see everyone!
What about Greenpointers?
I have been answering this question for months. While running the business from the West Coast has been really fun and is totally manageable, I believe the best thing for Greenpointers is to hand the torch to someone who will continue its mission to serve you, the amazingly wonderful people of Greenpoint, while living less than 3,000 miles away.
Greenpointers is officially for sale.
Not only is the online business very successful but our events are a huge part of the brand, so I hope to find someone who can be a savvy local publisher and an event planning guru. I know you are out there. Continue reading →
If you were able to pay us a visit at the Holiday Market yesterday, maybe you noticed our lovely Illustrator Libby (who made the amazing poster for the market!) – who was manning our table shaking guests down for $1 raffle tickets. Our Writer’s Fund is very healthy thanks to her skills of persuasion! Continue reading →
These doors may be shut–but there are plenty that are wide open! Photo courtesy of 3rdward.com.
3rd Ward may have had its faults (more of them than we imagined, it seems), but there was something deeply inspiring about a huge workspace and resource center designed especially for Brooklyn’s many talented creators, and we’d be lying if we told you its presence won’t be missed. However, in the wake of the spot’s closure, we’ve found ourselves reminded time and again that 3rd Ward wasn’t the only game in town–so many of our friends and neighbors have other studios, class centers, coworking quarters and event spaces with their own amazing offerings. Bushwick Daily and Greenpointers reached out to some of our favorite such institutions, and it’s with great pride that we present our readers with our official guide to ten of this borough’s greatest places to take your creativity when making is your job. Take a look through–you can thank us when you get settled in at a place that hooks it up and makes it happen!
