If you’re 16-year-old New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde (real name: Ella Yelich-O’Connor), you’re having the best week ever.
After playing two sold-out shows at Webster Hall Monday and Tuesday Lorde hopped across the East River to Greenpoint last night where she introduced her refreshing take on pop music (“where pierogies meet punk”) at Warsaw. Continue reading →
The mix of Supercrush Studio DJs (known for playing new sounds) and the Warsaw, one of Brooklyn’s most established and integral music venues makes this dance party a blend of new school and old school vibes.
Come and get your dance on (and eat some perogies) with Greenpointers!
When I met with Warsaw’s general manager Mark Chroscielewski to talk about hosting Greenpointers events at Warsaw, I met the nicest guy and discovered the most amazing space. I had to take his portrait. I learned that Mark’s father was on the board of Polish National Home for over 40 years and Mark actually founded the Warsaw, turning what many think to be a private club into a venue for some amazing rock concerts. (I saw Gogol Bordello there and the Dead Milkmen are coming in March…)
Whether you are a new supporter, or were there at the very beginning, the Newtown Creek Alliance invites you to share this moment to commemorate the great work they have done, and recognize the important work ahead, tomorrow Wednesday November 28, from 7-9pm @ The Warsaw (261 Driggs Ave).
Considering how much funk is in the creek, you know it’s gonna be quite the jam.
*Refreshments will be served, and there will be a cash bar.
It’s the big 2-0 this year! Every year this is one of those big Greenpoint events that brings out everybody. Always great to see people you haven’t seen in years and all for a good cause. Facebook event here.

United Friends of McCarren Park started a blog recently and it’s the best way to keep up with the groups meetings and activities. Like next up is their next meeting on Tuesday, April 29th. Yes, I realize it’s confusing all the groups and community activists (and meetings! Boy do these people like meetings!) around the nabe nowadays. I’m confused myself but I’d rather see a bunch of people trying to do good things for the neighborhood than not enough.
It’s time to unite for a better park!
Please join The United Friends of McCarren Park (UFMP) in a discussion about McCarren Park. UFMP takes the ideas from the community and park users to transform them into a vision for the future of McCarren Park.
That’s our mission, and we want to hear your ideas. UNITED, we can make a difference!
We’re a new group with the ambition of serving McCarren Park users, existing community groups and working with other parks groups in the area. With the influx of new park users and summer approaching this is a great time to get involved!
Please join us for our next meeting: Tuesday April 29th, 2008 7:00PM The Polish National Home/Warsaw 261 Driggs Avenue at Eckford Street Room 9: Second Floor
The proposed agenda: - Summary of “what we’ve done so far” and next steps - Community Calendar - Remember When… photo collection - It’s My Parks Day in May - Committee formation
