Like last year, we expect the neighborhood to thrive with art-filled activities so to help navigate the weekend, you might want to plan ahead by viewing the gallery of artists who are participating this year, checking out the online map, or picking up a printed guide booklet from any of the eight info hubs: Continue reading →
What qualifies art is hard to pin down, but just as slippery is qualifying what houses the art. Galleries take many shapes and forms, and Northern Brooklyn is heavily peppered with such diverse institutions ranging from warehouses and studios to parks and piers. Greenpoint Open Studios is a few short weeks away (June 2–3), and some of the featured artists may not be in the usual spaces. As is our annual tradition, we proudly offer you our guide to 2018’s Unusual Spaces.
Kingsland Wildflowers | 520 Kingsland Avenue Saturday, June 2 | 1-8PM Sunday, June 3 | 12-4PM This secluded rooftop park in northwest Greenpoint along Newtown Creek will be showcasing the work of several artists. Kill two birds with one stone: explore an untouched area in the nabe and support local art. Not convinced? You can also check out artwork and chill out on Kingsland Wildflowers’ gorgeous green roof for a relaxing afternoon of sketching, drinking and watching the sun set over Manhattan.
Sultry weather falls across the land—yet Halloween hour is close at hand. Creatures crawl in search of blood to terrorize our North Brooklyn ‘hood. And whosoever shall be found without the soul for getting down, must stand and face the shutdown of the L and rot inside Williamsburg’s shell. The foulest stench is in the air, the funk of Newtown Creek’s years. And grizzly ghouls from every tomb are closing in to share your doom. And though you fight to stay alive, your body starts to shiver; for no mere mortal can resist the evil of the thriller.

Word on the street is that there’s a dangerous crew of mockingbirds hanging out in Transmitter Park, and boy are they ready to start shit. One reader tells us, “I was running through there the other day and one of them swooped down and started pulling at my ponytail. When I tried to keep running, it followed be and started yanking at it again.” Apparently, it is nesting season for the birds and the brutal attacks should stop once the birds’ babies are able to leave the nest. This has been happeningfor years, and seemingly is just wildlife being rightfully pissed off that we’re invading their turf.
If you haven’t been before, Greenpoint Open Studios is an epic showcase of local art. Over the course of one weekend (this year June 3-4), hundreds of local artists open their studio doors to the public for an exciting peek inside their craft. It’s an uncurated, free event that allows visitors to get a glimpse of the process and space where artwork is created while engaging directly with its creators. Brooklyn has a long-standing reputation for being a hotbed of creativity and GOS is going to represent its northernmost tip in true Greenpoint fashion—by keepin’ it real—providing an open platform for showcasing the various expressions of our creative community’s imagination and skills. This year, we have more than 400 artists participating, and an exciting lineup of events: Continue reading →
