Labor-Less: Coffee.Street.Style – Greenpoint

Propeller

On Labor Day, the sun shone, the clouds showed, and then the showers – showered.  None of which hindered the style of coffee shop goers.

#Beautiful_Greenpoint – Send Us Your Photos!

We were really pissed when we saw this post by Brooklyn Magazine that said, “Greenpoint looks like the poorest, most dangerous neighborhood in New York City” based on the results of a stupid poll of people judging neighborhoods based on google street view images. Everyone know those photos are lame.

Last week was such a hard week for us here in 11222, and it felt like they were kicking us while we were down. Let’s show all those bozos who thought Greenpoint is a dump that it is really charming in it’s own gritty and colorful way!

If you follow us on Instagram send the following hashtags #beautiful_greenpointers #greenpointers to @greenpointers.

On Flickr add it to the Greenpointers Flickr Pool.

You can also email us (small jpgs please!) with #beautful_greenpoint in the subject line to greenpointers at gmail.com

Stay gorgeous, Greenpoint!

Sunday Snaps: It’s A Cruel – Cruel Spring

Do we all agree that spring sucks this year? Those electric blue skies, humping brown birds, bursting daffodils and even blooming cherry blossoms – but the damn cold won’t quit! Spring, stop sleeping in and get up and go to work! What a lazy season.

Share you Greenpoint snaps with us tag #greenpointers @greenpointers on Instagram.
