Greenpoint Avenue is a Bike Blockers clusterfuck, according to WNYC. Most of us might be willing to make exceptions for vans delivering smoked salmon, however.

Perhaps fitting that owner Deniz Kosan chose our charming toxic wasteland as the proper setting for his Breaking Bad-themed Turkish coffee shop, but a Walter’s Coffee Roastery may just provide some pleasant smells for once.

Not convinced that life can prosper in Newtown Creek? Come down to the Newtown Creek Alliance’s North Henry Street location this Sunday afternoon (from 12-4) to check out its Living Dock project. Greenpointers will be on the scene to provide verified coverage of this scientific marvel.

NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer got down with his Polish roots, kicking off Polish Heritage Month with a visit to Kent Street’s Polish-Slavic Center.

Clay Street might soon be getting an additional notch in its development belt. Developer Andru Coren filed a permit application for a 12-story, 60-unit residential building at 29 Clay.

Things are happening at the long-abandoned Greenpoint Hospital again, but many locals are not thrilled about the prospect of waiting an additional two and a half years to get the below-market-rate housing they need.
