• It’s as disgusting as it sounds… rat mites (NY Times)

• Do you think it’s total BS that North Brooklyn processes a huge amount of the city’s trash? New legislation might change that (NY Environmental Report)

• If you have a spare room, why not get rich with AirBnB like your fellow North Brooklynites? (DNAinfo)

• It may not protect us from crowded G trains, but Greenpoint Landing is bringing a park that promises to protect Greenpoint from storm surge with oyster beds and public access to the river edge (Daily News)

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!
