Good afternoon Greenpointers,

Congratulations to all North Brooklyn parents who sent their kids back to school this week! To celebrate, we’ve posted some fun ‘back to school’ ads from the 1950s and 60s.

With kids at school, parents may want to treat themselves at the neighborhood’s newest bathhouse… but, they will have to wait until 2025.

In the meantime, enjoy our new photo series, “Meet Your Neighbor,” from Greenpointers and local photographer, Michael Abramson.

You can also learn how to be a better neighbor at places like Transmitter Park. In other park news, Films on the Green Series Returns with “Leap!” at McGolrick Park.

In exciting restaurant news, Uzuki opened at the Japanese-themed 50 Norman complex.

Next weekend is Rosh Hashanah and later this month is Yom Kippur, so we’ve written about ways to celebrate with the Greenpoint Shul.
