It may be chilly, but another beautiful spring weekend is upon us! Kick it off with a spring poem, this first piece for our new op-ed section!

Let the weather inspire you to pack the perfect Greenpoint picnic and perhaps go on a hunt for a free piece of fine art by “that Greenpoint artist.” Grab a good read on the way, from one of North Brooklyn’s top independent bookstores.

Get inspired by local dancer Elisa Schreiber or illustrator Laura Alejo’s creative journey.

Hungry? Nosh on some grub at one of Williamsburg’s best vegan restaurants. And perhaps take home a bottle of booze from the newly reopened Dunne’s Polemost Liquor, one of Greenpoint’s oldest retail shops.

Weekend fun seekers can also check out the slew of movie theaters that have safely reopened with Covid measures in place.

For our weekend long read, catch up on all you need to know about the proposed “Invest In Our NY” act.
