It was a snowy week in Greenpoint, with over a foot of snow falling by Tuesday afternoon. Luckily, locals could warm up with Asian-inspired lattes at the brand-new, dog friendly Sippy Cafe or grab a slice at the recently opened Ace’s Pizza.
This week, we also reported on a fatal dog attack in Williamsburg, and the grim fate of the disco ball Rite Aid. We appreciated Dream Fishing Tackle for the quirky store that it is and spoke with city council candidate Lincoln Restler. Need a boost for the weekend? Pre-order croissants delivered to your door from Alyosha Bakery.
