Well, here we are — we made it to the end of February, the shortest month of the year, and the final stretch of what may be the weirdest NY winter in recent memory. Here at Greenpointers we are still riding the high of our celebrated Valentine’s Market the Sunday before last — thanks to all who came out! — and are excited to see all the tasty food and entertainment events upcoming in and around Greenpoint. Savor the remaining chilly temperatures with these cultural offerings, and as always, leave us a comment and let us know what you found most enlightening from your excursions here in North Brooklyn!
