Hello there my fellow Greenpointers, both old and new. Just wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself. My name is Dylan and I was asked to join by Justine. From time to time I will contribute some pics I take around Greenpoint, everything from events to everyday life of the neighborhood.
A little about myself. I was born and raised right here in good ol Greenpoint some 34 years ago. That’s right, I am not afraid to say my age. LOL. I have seen firsthand how Greenpoint has developed throughout my life. To look on Manhattan Avenue and see people sitting in a Starbucks only to think back to the time when I would walk through that entrance every Saturday to spend my day watching movies. Or walk up further and see the Rite Aid off between Norman and Meserole Avenue and think to the times when it was a roller rink.
While the neighborhood has changed, I have not and hopefully in time I will be able to show you Greenpoint through the eyes of one who was born and raised here so that you may appreciate and understand the gem of a neighborhood we all live in together.
To my old neighbors, thank you for supporting me on this new endeavor. To my new neighbors, I look forward to us getting to know each other in time.
Thank you to Justine for inviting me to Greenpointers Blog and thank you to each person who took the time to read my little intro about myself. Hope to bring nothing but good things to the table in the near future. Thank you all.
