Thursday Spotlight: Meet Greenpoint Comedian and Actress Mary Houlihan

Full disclosure: Mary Houlihan and I used to carpool. The guest star on “Difficult People” and I would be shuttled to Brookside Middle School by my neighbor’s mom, but it was always a mystery whether or not Mary would join us on a given school day. Hers was the last house on our carpool journey, and — after a few car honks — Mary emerged, or didn’t. I was always grateful for the mornings she did. Even then, she had a stupefyingly offbeat wit — generous but dry, subdued but bonkers. Chipper as we were bitter with her tardiness, Mary would enter the car and chime, “Good morning, friends.”

We once shared a commute; we now share a neighborhood. Houlihan embodies the best parts of Greenpoint in her life and career — she builds community, as with her Three Chickies musical improv series, and maintains a signature self-awareness, even as careers (and neighborhoods) change. I’m happy to have caught up and discussed the comedy scene with the sly wizard behind “Learn To Paint With Mary Houlihan!“.

Greenpointers: How long have you been in Greenpoint?
Mary Houlihan: About six years. When I first moved here I lived off the Myrtle/Willoughby G stop in Bed-Stuy, then I moved to a big building that flooded in Hurricane Sandy after living there for just a month. Then I moved in with my parents in New Jersey. Then I moved to a green house off Calyer Street, then I lived near Grandma Roses, and now I’m in my current location. I’ve moved a lot.

The neighborhood’s treated you well?
It’s treated me well, me likely. It’s quiet. It’s hidden but not insane.

Inside the Limited Time Pop-Up, Threes @ Franklin & Kent

Everyone is discussing all the restaurant closings happening along the Franklin Street corridor. Hail Mary’s shutter this past weekend was just the latest, but this has been happening since before the holidays aka the time of year many restaurants are able to get into the black. There are a multitude of reasons why this is occurring, most of them not really within our control. The bright side of this predicament is it allows new spots to open up and for new neighborhood faces to try to win us over. One such example is the limited time only Threes Brewing pop-up in the old Cassette space (113 Franklin St.). Continue reading

Hallelujah! Something’s happening in the old Cassette space, making Franklin Street a little less sparse. The past several weeks we’ve seen Brooklyn Label paper up their windows, Mr. Souvlaki bit the dust, Mrs. Kim’s is “renovating”, and Jimmy’s packed up before year’s end. Gowanus’s Threes Brewing will be opening a temporary bar and beer shop at 113 Franklin Street (at Kent) starting today, and it will run at least through the end of the month and possibly longer.
