About Tony L

Back in the late 1990's, Greenpoint was the first New York City neighborhood that I aimlessly walked through and I immediately fell in love with it. I've lived in Greenpoint now for over a decade and I still love it for both its new additions and older, timeless qualities.

Fighting Firefighters, Dinner Boat, Ticket Fetish, Live Jazz — The Hook-Up (12/2)

Artwork by Tamara Garvey

 

Firefighters are suing the city because they allege that Ladder 146 in Greenpoint is anti-Muslim and anti-Hispanic.

Brooklyn’s first dinner boat, “The Water Table” a World War II-era ship that will be serving up seasonal New England cuisine, launches this Friday from the India Street pier.  (Brownstoner)

Steve Levin needs a garage or a bike.   (NY Post)

And finally, if you’re not doing anything tonight, you can head to Noble Street, get a drink, eat Latkes and listen to some live Chanukah jazz music.  (Brokelyn)
