A view of Franklin Street

Happy Friday Greenpointers! While the Greenpoint Library is still under construction the “stunning” Hunters Point Library opened this week just across the Pulaski Bridge.

If you’re up for a “clean cruise” tonight an electric vessel will provide views of the new mural on Newtown Creek. And if you’re celebrating Rosh Hashana, the Chabad of North Brooklyn will host a holiday feast on the waterfront on Sunday.
