Greenpoint Memorial Day Parade Sunday (5/26)

© Jon Pywell 2013

Catch the Greenpoint Memorial Day Parade is Sunday May 26th, 2013 – beginning at 9am. It begins at The American Legion (519 Leonard St) and goes up Nassau Ave, then up to Manhattan Ave to St. Anthony’s Church (Milton St & Manhattan Ave) where there will be a Mass in honor of living and deceased US veterans. Then the parade will retrace its steps back to the post for a memorial service and flag raising. More info at Greenpoint Gazette.

We spotted this Bald Eagle on its huge nest on the Delaware River this past weekend. Thank God they didn’t go with the Wild Turkey as Ben Franklin suggested for the national bird. Bald Eagles are way more bad ass.

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!
