About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog “D” – please say hi!

      Yes, which streets are flooded? My car is parked in Greenpoint. I am not a resident but I left it near my art studio. Very dumb move. πŸ™

    Appreciate your input!

      FEMA just updated their Advisory Base Flood elevation maps with new data, so looking through their website is the best source for this information at the moment.
