Mow your lawn, slurp your noodles — The Hook-up (6/15)

Parks Department to Greenpoint Landing: Municipal Lawn Care? Lol, Byeee

Happy Friday, Greenpoint! You know how it is here in North Brooklyn — another week, another waterfront development… Get the first look at the three towers proposed for the site immediately south of the Greenpoint Terminal Market.

Meanwhile, the Parks Department is taking quite the snarky attitude about the relentless development here in Greenpoint. Turns out, Parks doesn’t want to mow the lawn at Greenpoint Landing.

And they’re not the only ones up in arms this week. An off duty cop was arrested here last Friday night in a road rage incident.

In lighter news, looks like we’re the best slurpers in town. Wanpaku (621 Manhattan Avenue) topped this list of the city’s ramen joints.
