On September 14th in Greenpoint’s history we were named a historic district. And did you know that “it has not been proven, but folklore claims that Brooklyn’s famous and distinctive accent was born in Greenpoint“. I believe it! – The Brooklyn Eagle
I sorta can’t believe that McCarren Park’s skate park is already open. I remember back in the day hanging out with the skateboard and freestyle kids in Key Food parking lot and trooping over the Pulaski everyday, sometimes twice a day, to chill at the abnormally hilly Honeywell parking lot. Me and my girlfriends would check out the cuties do their ollies and tricks. I had my first kiss in that Honeywell parking lot. Maybe I’ll go reminisce and check out the new kids… Actually, I’d probably wind up arrested for googling young boys, so scratch that. – Curbed
Greenpoint is worldwide! Kate Summers found this sign on a random corner in Budapest last month:
If you graduated from St Francis of Paola (1967-72) you’ve got a reunion to attend!
When: OCTOBER 16 2009 at 7PM
Where: Richardson Bar and Grill on Graham & Richardson.
PLEASE NOTE: The reunion is for the people who graduated from 1967 to 1972. The reason we chose these years is that 1967 was the first year to graduate from the school, and 1970 was the first class to go through kindergarten to 8th grade & graduate.
My blog buddy Lisanne over at Found In Brooklyn has a follow up to some random Greenpoint photos she found over a year and half ago. And it turns out the boys in front of the fire engine were local heroes! – Found in Brooklyn
Design*Sponge features a photo walk through of Maya Marzolf of Le Grenier’s Greenpoint home. It’s eclectic, fun and totally drool worthy – a MUST click. – Design*Sponge
