After the jump, get a sneak peek at our awesome home decor vendors. We hope to see all of you Sunday afternoon! Continue reading →
Michael Hambouz is a multi-disciplinary artist who’s been living as a Greenpoint resident for the last 12 years. Originally from the Midwest, he calls Niles, Michigan, his hometown where he continues to source paper from a local mill called French Paper Co.
In his current solo exhibition at Calico (67 West St, #203), Michael Hambouz is showcasing “Pretty in Pink” – an experimental series of multi-tiered structures, collages, and videos created during a period of personal hardship, with each piece representing the meditations on specific issues that the artist dealt with in his life. By “pink-washing” his 3D lenticular paintings, his work speaks of positive transformation and taking control of negative experiences by reinterpreting them into bright compositions of bold colors and figurative patterns.

While sifting through clothes at beacon’s closet or grabbing a beer and a brat at Spritzenhaus, you may have seen a procession of yoga-pantsed Greenpointers heading in and out of the unassuming grey door on the corner of Nassau and Guernsey.
A closer look at 55 Nassau will lead you to Hosh Yoga, a Greenpoint nonprofit made possible by a team of 60 volunteers and instructors, which provides donation-based classes with a mission of health and wellness as a right to life, not a luxury. Continue reading →
In search of a side gig and a chance to strengthen your relationship with your neighborhood?
Greenpointers could use a few more regular contributors for its News section: the realm of shady real estate dealings and deep-seated environmental drama, town hall meetings, and all that can’t be categorized about our little corner of North Brooklyn.
You don’t have to be a Writer, but you do have to be able to write, report, and follow journalistic best practices. Deadlines too.
Your level and frequency of contribution is up to you, but we’ll pay you $20/post.
Please email email@example.com and say hi if you’re interested. Include some information about yourself, your background, and links to clips or writing samples.
If you have your heart set on contributing to our Food, Music, or Fashion section, email us anyway. Perhaps we can work something out.
We really felt the love this past Sunday at our Valentine’s Market! Like the last (Holiday) market, it was another gorgeous day to hang out in the Greenpoint Loft, chill on the rooftop, eat and drink, and shop local! Thanks to everyone who made it out. Check out our photo booth photos here!
As always, the market was teeming with great energy and it was brought to a whole new level with a visit from cupid, who treated us to a free style rhyme before he went up to face paint on the upstairs mezzanine. And with DJ T*O*N*Y spinning a variety of love jams and hip-hop, a lot of us couldn’t help but to dance. It was a gathering of creative multi-talented people who include those who provide the free fun activities as well as our amazing vendors.
Many people ask us where they can find our vendors after the market so read on after the jump to find out! Continue reading →
This salad features some seasonal, seedless citrus: blood oranges and Cara Cara oranges. Both types of oranges are usually expensive, and so can be substituted as needed with grapefruits, clementines or similarly juicy citrus of your choice.
This past week (and hopefully in the weeks to come), Mr. Berry at 872 Manhattan Avenue has been selling Cara Cara oranges for a dollar each, and blood oranges for 79 cents. Pomegranates can be found at a number of neighborhood groceries, including C-Town and The Garden, though they are always cheaper when spotted at the smaller fruit and veg shops.
