Yesterday’s all-day snowstorm left Greenpoint gracefully blanketed in more than a foot of snow. Schools were closed, trendy fitness classes were cancelled, some businesses took a snow day—yet others defiantly remained open to serve warm beverages and food to the toughest of Greenpointers. Today as the snow melts, drips and drops from trees and fire escapes onto our heads, let’s take a look at what locals witnessed first hand yesterday. Continue reading
A Duck on the G Train, A Massage For Your Period and the Best Place to Photograph The Kosciuszko Bridge—The Hook-Up 8/25

Really? Schools closed? When I was a kid, a civil war needed to break out before they closed NYC Public Schools. Lucky little bastards. They better be sledding somewhere and not inside playing video games. Why I oughta… Continue reading
