The Greenpoint YMCA has Shirtless Sundays. – Ripping Apart

The curious case of the missing bicycle tire involves the 94th cops taking it into custody as evidence. Really? Is it needed for that big Law & Order style trial going to take place? – Cory Forsyth

John Ericsson, Greenpoint’s historical pride and joy, lived at 95 Franklin Street and with all those bronze plaques that went missing, you can have this mini one for your desk and bring a little Gpoint to work with you everyday. – Brooklyn Paper & eBay

Catbird closes it’s Metropolitan Ave store. I have to agree with Racked that that location always seemed really odd to me. Their having a huge sale with 50-75% off until their lease is fully up. Their Bedford Ave shop is still kickin’.

The Manhattan Ave Washington Mutual branch is closing. Even more interesting, what will go in the double store front space?
