For every neon sign, there is story. For us it’s the story of Jen, who sought out a sign maker for Greenpointers and discovered a dying art. It’s the story of skills passed down from father to son that inspired Jen enough to work on capturing an otherwise lost craft on film.

The Greenpointers neon sign is an artifact of “Gasper & Son” and is the symbolic torch that was passed down when Jen sold Greenpointers – rooted in inspiration with a deep respect for creativity and artistry that serves the local community. It makes an appearance in all of the Greenpointers events and will light up our bar again at the upcoming Summer Market.

This Sunday, July 12th at 4pm, “Gasper & Son” returns to its roots for a free screening at one of our neighborhood favorites, Adelina’s (159 Greenpoint Ave). Enjoy a prosecco toast to celebrate the film’s release. Delicious food and beverages will be available for purchase. Space is limited so RSVP on Facebook.
