Good afternoon, Greenpointers.

The week was filled with so much news, I hardly know where to start!

Edy’s Grocer and Peter Pan Donuts have teamed up for a limited-edition donut. Eleva Coffee plays host to a new pop-up bar on Friday nights (hey, that’s tonight!).

The city’s DOT unveiled its compromise plan for McGuinness Boulevard. The historic Greenpoint Savings Bank building faces the threat of foreclosure. Yesterday, North Brooklyn elected officials announced that approximately 80 migrants will be housed at the McCarren Recreation Center.

The McCarren Park Demo Garden hosted a panel discussion on environmental activist Sister Francis Kress. Careful accessing Kent Avenue this Sunday, as runners will be racing the Brooklyn Mile.

Who cut down these trees on Huron Street? Seriously, what kind of weirdo would do something like that? As always, we have your weekly Community Cookbook recipe and weekend roundup (high on your list should be our Open Air Fair).

Sadly, the body of a missing 27-year-old man was found in Newtown Creek.

In and around North Brooklyn
