Good afternoon, Greenpointers!
2022 is already well underway, and though things have been slow in the neighborhood, that doesn’t mean we’ve had a shortage of things to write about.
We covered some newly opened restaurants with a lot of buzz – Edith’s Eatery and Grocery and Bonnie’s. Check out our profiles of Borough Chocolates, 99 Franklin, and the soon-to-open Cutlets for more scoop on tasty treats in North Brooklyn.
We explored some of Greenpoint’s most unique local businesses – Scattered Kind, which offers one-of-a-kind rug tufting workshops, High Valley Books, a treasure trove for design lovers, and Clay Space, a community-oriented ceramics space.
Students across the city walked out of their schools in protest of learning conditions during COVID-19. Assemblymember Emily Gallagher and State Senator Brian Kavanagh introduced legislation to ban gas hookups in new construction.
For a little design inspiration, check out the latest in our series of home tours.
