Greenpointers: What are the biggest changes that your hair goes through in the winter months?

The NYPD has released surveillance images of two men suspected of carrying out a violent attack against another man on Nassau Aveune between Diamond and Newel Streets on September 15th. According to News 12, two men approached a 36 year-old man from behind, and knocked him to the ground. Once he fell, the assailants continued to punch and kick the victim’s face and body. The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital.

While members of the North Brooklyn Community facebook page have speculated that the attack began with a game of pool at Goldies, the bar’s managers say there was no argument inside the bar.

There certainly was no attack inside or outside of Goldie’s.” Continue reading
