Dear Greenpointers, how many Insta-worthy photos of the fireworks did you capture? We empathize with your agony of choosing which one/s to post on your feed. Nonetheless, we hope you had a fine time in the company of loved ones. 

This weekend, we embark onto a new series of non-4th related events! Let’s go. 

Saturday, July 9

After a nourishing yoga session, walk a couple of steps over to Lex’s Vintage Pop-Up. Also located within Greenpoint Terminal Market, you’ll get to browse through a timeless vintage jean collection and 90s jewelry. The 90s are back and you don’t want to miss out on reliving your childhood wardrobe.

Sunday, July 10

McGolrick Park Summer Farmers Market’s cool factor quadrupled after Miranda was seen shopping there in Episode 7 of And Just Like That… . To quote Miranda on the phone with Steve, ‘I’m at the good place, farthest from our house!’ So… is Miranda a Greenpointer too??

I digress. But be sure to stop by McGolrick Farmers Market this Sunday, open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

And for this weekend’s grand finale… the NYC Parks department has a list of spray shower locations (turned on when temperatures go above 80 F), drinking fountains, and blocks with good tree covers to help New Yorkers combat this summer heat. You can find this information here.

Thank you @northbrooklynneighbors for alerting us to this much needed resource! 

Get that summer tan in and stay hydrated in the process, Greenpointers!
