Do you feel like things have been pretty quacked in Greenpoint this week? You’re not wrong. On Monday night, a leashed duck boarded the G Train, and as you can see from the video, he was not too pleased to be there.

If you’re feeling as stressed as that duck, and you think your period might have something to do with it, Massage Greenpoint (37 Greenpoint Avenue) has you covered. They’ve just rolled out “The Moon Cycle Massage,” aimed at alleviating those monthly aches.

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle went on a hunt for the best place in the neighborhood to photograph the new Kosciuszko Bridge, and concluded it’s a tough task. But they did manage to snag a pic of an ultra groovy bus on Lombardy Street.   Continue reading

Sludge Metal In Pics: Eyehategod, The Netherlands, Ecstatic Vision at Brooklyn Bazaar

Eyehategod

This past Easter Sunday at Brooklyn Bazaar (150 Greenpoint Ave.), Eyehategod played with support from Ecstatic Vision, Netherlands and Haram. Eyehategod’s set was toxically electric, but as a mosh pit weakly formed and then disseminated in the middle of their set, the band asked the crowd for more excitement. Perhaps the anemic crowd was due to it being Easter Sunday night, but those who were there did eventually step in to rock out. All photos ©Dylan Lappin. Continue reading

Sunday Snaps 10/09 – “Been Here a While”

halina
Halina, of Sky Flowers (164 Driggs Ave.), is originally from Warsaw, but has lived in Greenpoint and provided beautiful flowers at her store for almost twenty years. Of the Polish penchant for flowers, she says: “If you go to Poland, you will see beautiful gardens everywhere, it is part of the tradition.”

This week’s photo essay focuses on people that have been in Greenpoint a while and have stories to tell about it. Whether they remember movies at The Chopin Theater or when McGuinness Boulevard was still cobblestone, these folks are everyday guardians of the neighborhood’s history and traditions. If you are lucky enough to see them walking down the street, say hello, politely ask them about their memories of the neighborhood, and get ready for the best history lesson of your life… Continue reading
