Looks like we are getting some of that long-awaited warmth this weekend, albeit with a chance of cloud! Whatever your sun exposure preference is, we have a good mix of both indoors and outdoors events lined up for you. Let’s get started.
Saturday, May 21
For the final few weeks of spring, spend it well by joining the Grand Street BID’s Spring Clean Up Day, an initiative in collaboration with North Brooklyn Neighbors. Volunteers will be gathering on Grand Street from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. After picking up trash, cleaning tree pits and thus beautifying the neighborhood, the team has plans to reward themselves with a happy hour – pizza and drinks at Blinky’s Bar! Register here.
Always wanted your children to learn Arabic? The Greenpoint Islamic Center (602 Leonard Street) is offering classes for children every Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, check out the photo below.

Anyone else feeling really perplexed by our water tower turning orange? Greenpointers did some digging and found out that it is to commemorate a new Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 exhibition, held at Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse (73 West Street) from May 20-31. Read all about it here.
Parting thought… I miss our uniquely-Greenpoint Mario Mystery Box. Will we get it back after May 31?
