Serious Coffee, Happy Anniversary, Man vs. Bus, Transfer Turmoil, Toxic Horror — The Hook-Up (10/28)

In case you thought everyone was happy about less garbage coming to Greenpoint, local trash collectors are upset about the reduction of capacity for transfer stations in such places as North Brooklyn. In all fairness, it doesn’t make sense to make it harder to get rid of trash in neighborhoods that are about to build monster condos filled with more rubbish makers. So, don’t build the towers and we’re good. (Craine’s NY)
And finally… Of all things Halloween in Greenpoint this year that I find the most intriguing and terrifying, it would be sitting in a canoe at night on a horror-themed Newton Creek, but that’s exactly what our friends at the North Brooklyn Boat Club are doing this October 31st. (NY Daily News)
Come celebrate tonight Thursday, December 27th at 9pm.
Tito’s Vodka and Bulldog Gin are sponsors for the night, which means all beer cocktails mixed with these products are FREE!
Happy Anniversary One Stop!
