Here’s this week’s local news, in brief!

Traffic safety is an ongoing concern after a 14-year-old was hit by a reckless driver on Manhattan Avenue this week. The driver is currently being held on $2500 bail. Community members mobilized and met to discuss safer streets this past Wednesday.

This weekend we’re getting full-length G trains!

Police are currently looking for two suspects who bought more than ten thousand dollars of luxury goods after stealing a Greenpoint woman’s credit card.

A Williamsburg man has pled guilty to running a heroin ring, and sold the drugs out of his apartment on Driggs Ave. According to Patch, “Twenty-three other people pleaded guilty in the same ring, where they sold heroin under the names, “Knockout,” “Takeover,” “Power Hour,” “Killing Time,” “Pure,” “Gucci,” and “Scorpion.”

Northern Greenpoint’s residents waistlines predicted to get larger: Van Leeuwen is the first business tenant coming to Greenpoint Landing. It’s also the best ice cream in the neighborhood, in our humble opinion.

Franklin Street is poised for growth in 2017; could it be “The New Bedford Avenue”?

Tomorrow, you can get some exercise outdoors while helping clear leaves in McCarren Park.
