Greenpoint was on high snow alert yesterday, waiting patiently for our second Nor’Easter in a week. The storm was originally predicted to hit us in the early morning hours, but didn’t. Greenpoint residents awoke to what seemed like a pretty typical rainy winter morning. Commuters went about their business and shops and restaurants opened up, but with trepidation. Around noon, many locals found themselves wondering “Is that all ya got?” because no snow seemed to be falling. Then a few hours later the snow started coming down, gently at first, but soon began to rage, whipping soggy snowflakes around in every direction. Some local businesses closed early, and others fearlessly remained open to serve their most adventurous Greenpoint customers. Below, check out scenes from around the neighborhood.


Vegan snow warriors are open and ready to serve!!
