Two Greenpoint Landing buildings have reached a construction milestone — a vertical one. Both 33 Eagle and 21 Commercial Street have topped out.

Greenpoint is on the map for hot sauce in New York City. Though the resident expert at The Heatonist cautioned that there’s “no face-melting sauce coming out of New York City right now,” Paulie Gees favorite Mike’s Hot Honey represents some of the best of the Big Apple’s Big Pepper Ambitions.

Making locals proud is Rev. Ann Kansfield, the Fire Department’s first lesbian chaplain, who made the New York Times’ short list of New Yorkers of the Year.

At PS34, legos are serious business. The school even appointed a Lego Program Coordinator to help steward our next generation of little engineers.

Williamsburg: it’s hot. It’s a global brand. It’s getting “a new wave of huge luxury hotels…to cater to the influx of gawking globetrotters.”

“Eight hundred dollars for a room; it’s outrageous,” says this New York Times expose on renting in Greenpoint, which is, incredibly, written in 2015.

Heatonist Founder Noah Chaimberg

One of the great things about writing for Greenpointers is occasionally getting to watch dreams transform into reality.

When I first met Heatonist founder Noah Chaimberg, it was on a bitter, snowy Sunday morning back in February. He was shivering on the doorstep of a Wythe Avenue construction site, kindly waiting to greet me and explain his zany vision for a spicy future. He was part-way through a Kickstarter campaign, with the hope of raising enough funds to turn said construction site into a hot sauce tasting room and events space, complete with the world’s first hot sauce sommelier.
