Happy Friday Greenpointers. Defy the chilly air and squeeze some last-minute park time in before the leaves have all fallen for a screening of “Shocktoberfest: Pet Sematary” tonight in McGolrick Park starting at 6:15 p.m., part of NYTC Park’s Movies Under the Stars series.
Art gallery and retail shop Greenpoint Hill (100 Freeman St) will close at the end of the month and the shop is having a sale for the next two weekends before Smallhome (87 Oak St.) relocates to the space. Stop in on Saturday and Sunday 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. for 40 percent off all items and art (store fixtures and furniture will also be for sale).
