Things are getting back to normal but the more I look around, the more I realize how lucky we all are here in Greenpoint. Tomorrow we will have a comprehensive list of things you can do to help areas more negatively impacted by Sandy. Our hearts go out to The Rockaways, Red Hook & Lower Manhattan.

We are planning a local benefit (TBA) and will need donations from local businesses for a huge raffle with all proceeds to benefit Hurricane Sandy Relief. Please email greenpointers (at) if you have something to donate.


• Volunteer Clean up McCarren Park on Saturday. Register here.

Farmers Markets Resume This Weekend: Saturday @ McCarren* & Sunday @ McGolrick & Cooper. *No compost/textile drop-off


• In lieu of McGolrick Park Dog Halloween Parade, this Sunday 11/4 at 1pm Assemblyman Joe Lentol and District Dog will be partnering for a hurricane relief event  to collect goods for Brooklyn residents and animal rescue organizations. Stay tuned for more details.
