Hailing from upstate NY, I moved from Washington Heights to Greenpoint in 2004, and have been sitting atop the Oil Spill since. Aside from trading a one-block walk to the train for Greenpoint’s 1.5 mile walk to the L, there are no regrets. There is no McGolrick Park in the Heights.
I write local/NYC topical articles; as well as music-related pieces. I also write fiction and music, including the score for a new feature film, World’s Best Dad, (made by a Greenpoint-based filmmaker). My blog is located here.
