Bless this mess—Construction on West St. between India and Java

Today—Inauguration Day 2017—you’re either donning a red baseball cap and poppin’ some champagne or silently crying at your desk and mustering up the guts to join a march tomorrow. Yesterday we published a list of politically-charged events in our area this weekend that embrace diversity. We should mention that we didn’t receive any details about pro-Trump celebrations; if we had, we would have published those too. Whatever your views on the incoming administration may be, here are some local news events from this week that had nothing whatsoever to do with PEOTUS—–>POTUS.

A sham utility company was found to be illegally installing gas meters so building owners could get the buildings finished and certificates of occupancy faster. Some of the buildings were reportedly in North Brooklyn.

The Commodore‘s kitchen is closed for a few weeks after a fire about a week and a half ago. But they just started serving nachos yesterday!

The Nasty Women art exhibit and Stay Nasty festivities last weekend at Knockdown Center raised more than $50k for Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, Girls for Gender Equity, the New York Immigration Coalition, SisterSong, and Planned Parenthood.

Northside Fest dates have been announced—June 7-11—and badges are on sale.

Episodes of Homeland were shot in Greenpoint and Williamsburg!

Following recent injuries and deaths, traffic safety is continuing to be an issue. A Safe Streets meet up is planned for next Wednesday at Greenpoint Beer & Ale (7 N 15th Street).

The L Train got jammed up on Thursday morning.
