Happy Weekend Greenpoint, and welcome to Late Summer! We can barely believe August starts this Sunday.

This week, we featured the opening of a new toy store and art space, My Plastic Heart. We also featured Baba Cool, which opened its second outpost in Brooklyn, this time in Williamsburg. And we previewed a cool new residency coming to Fulgurances Laundromat.

Art enthusiasts will love our profile with local painter Jay Miriam. We also profiled local artist Fernanda Oriba-Horta this week.

Those in need of a good laugh should check out Comedy in Cooper Park this upcoming Monday. Music lovers can also schedule in evenings at the Park Church Coop Music Series, which hosts outdoor concerts throughout the summer.

Fit in your last visit to the Leonard Library before it closes for renovations on Monday, August 2. Worry not – Greenpoint Library is still up and running, with computer service and open seating also now available. Face coverings are required

  1. It’s too nice seeing new toy store are opening amid the pandemic. This entertainment and joy that will bring to your children who were deprived of their freedom recently is a big relief for them. I was so lucky to have such a good communication with my favorite toy store LargerthanLifeToys.com where I can easily order immediately some of the request of my kids.
