Brooklyn Raga Massive playing at the 4th Year Anniversary Celebration of Golden Drum
Two weeks ago Greenpoint’s spiritual center, The Golden Drum, celebrated its fourth anniversary and invited Greenpointers along for the fun. Having never heard them before, naturally we here at the news desk were intrigued. Armed with curious minds and hearty dose of New York instilled skepticism, the fabulous Julia Moak and I visited the Golden Drum to see what the center was all about and why it was attracting all these shiny happy people.

Greenpointers is excited to present a joint interview with two Greenpoint residents and business owners who recently collaborated on, and published, a book – a partnership they told us originated from this very website. We had to find out more.
Ok, let’s be real, Greenpoint. We all ate and drank ourselves into oblivion during the holidays and now that 2015 is here, it’s New Year Resolutions time! But as usual, they are going to be challenged. Hey, we all like to indulge as much as the next guy, but it wouldn’t hurt to start this year off on the right track and actually finish what we start. Easier said than done, right? Fortunately, owner and health coach Dy from Human@Ease has a program that guides people through the process of getting fit, focused and committed; as a result, it’s a lot less intimidating… and it works!

What would your community be like if it had ‘fitness patrols’ roaming your neighborhood streets? McDonald’s would probably be an underground junk food dealer (4 chicken nuggets in a dime bag, please) and Starbucks would most likely sell wheat grass macchiatos and have stair masters in their lounges instead of free wi-fi.
Well Human@Ease actually did the unthinkable and the Fitness Protection Police patrolled the Greenpoint streets to promote a healthier lifestyle to the community! Continue reading →
Earlier this year – you voted for local fitness celebrity Tim Haft – in the internet’s fitness trainer popularity contest called Fit or Flop.
And because of all those votes – Tim is in it to win it!
He updated us on where he stands in the contest:
After 8 rounds of competitions there were 16 competitors left. I was one of them. Then the judges “voted off” another 6. So now we’re down to 10 and I’m still alive…I think that what I (and Punk Rope) represent – good health, fitness, play, and mostimportant of all, community – are traits worth getting behind.
There are only 9 days left, so go ahead and vote for Tim Haft so he can get into the internet fitness star online hall of fame!
