Good afternoon, Greenpointers.

We’re definitely in the dog days of summer, with not too many big breaking news stories for ya.

But the news wasn’t non-existent.

My personal favorite story from this week is the unveiling of a beautiful new entrance at Marsha P. Johnson State Park!

Sadly, a massive fire destroyed multiple Williamsburg businesses. We shared news about a new GoFundMe campaign for a local restaurant server. New restaurants Taku Sando and Healthy as a Motha are expected to open soon. Littleneck Outpost is closing for renovations.


Two tragic traffic accidents took place in Williamsburg on Monday. Vice is leaving Williamsburg (for real this time).

We got your weekend roundup and Community Cookbook recipe.

In and around North Brooklyn

Some Williamsburg families are waiting to be able to return home after the massive fire.

Afropunk Music Festival is back this weekend, in a new Greenpoint location.

  1. It’s unique, innovative and handsome – a beautifully designed gateway. But while we’re at it, with new parks coming down the line in the area, and many buildings “christening” stretches of roadway or portions of theirnew developments, why not pay homage to the memory & history of the original inhabitants of Greenpoint / Williamsburg – the native Lenape tribe? It would be fitting to have a “Lenape Lane” or “Lenape Promenade” or “Lenape Park”. Let’s remember & celebrate those native inhabitants. the people who called this once lush piece of land on the banks of the East River their cherished ancestral homeland. After all, WE are all the true immigrants. (At the time of the Dutch arrival, around 15,000 Lenape lived in the area now known as New York Cityn).
