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!

    That would explain why there’s always orthodox Jews on that corner.

  2. Jo says:

    Wow. This is on my corner and I’ve always wondered what the deal with that place, as it was supposed to be some sort of beauty salon but never seemed to have any business…

    Lmao, my house is the one next door

  4. JT says:

    I KNEW IT!! I’ve lived across the street for a year and always wondered why the “open” sign was lit up until 5am and turned off during the day. Shady characters always going in and out.

  5. Rachel says:

    There are far too many unlicensed massage places in Greenpoint. On a walk down Manhattan Ave from Driggs to Norman, you’ll notice half a dozen! These unlicensed massage studios are unhygienic, and potentially dangerous if you suffer from any health condition. At best, you might recieve inconsistent work. At worst, an unlicensed person could seriously injure you. Massage without a license is a Felony in the state of NY. It is shameful that so many of these businesses are allowed to exist in the open in Greenpoint.
