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

Brunch at The Habitat starts this Saturday from 11am-3pm offering a price fix menu which includes any brunch item, coffee or tea, and choice of bloody mary, mimosa, or red sangria (the bloody bar will still be available for all of you die hard fans). Everything on the menu is brand spanking new, so definitely stop by and check us out! Check out the sneak peak of the BLT club sandwich… looks soooo delicious.

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

Due to the rain last weekend the Fun & Film in Cooper Park was postponed to this Saturday. There will be crafts and music for kids of all ages, followed by the film “Howl’s Moving Castle” on the lawn when it gets dark. All in all a nice family fun day!

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

I was home all weekend recuperating from a wicked sprained ankle so I missed the inagural weekend of Joann’s baby, the Greenpoint Food Market, but lucky for me (and you!) it’s every Saturday! I have plans this weekend but I’m hoping to get over there on the 26th and get myself some of these adorable little Greenpoint cookies from Sugarbilt!
