Good Morning Gloryville – Obviously Brooklyn has Breakfast Raves!

Dancing or yoga?

For most Greenpointers, early mornings will find us hitting the snooze button a few too many times. Others are out dancing. A recent trend has sprung up in North Brooklyn (and across New York City) – people hitting the dance floors before their morning cup of coffee.

A group named Morning Gloryville, whose motto is “rave your way into the day” really knows how to wake up by dancing hard to awesome music with great people in a fun setting. Continue reading

Kiki Morris: Greenpoint’s Best-Loved Trainer Talks Health, Happiness and Longevity

Kiki Morris: Best Trainer in NYC...probably the world!

If you’ve ever taken a run around McCarren Park track, the chances are you’ll know Kiki. Kiki Morris has been a regular fixture at the northwest corner of the track for almost 18 years and is one of the most well-loved figures in the neighborhood. He trains people in the park every day of the week and is greeted by pretty much everyone who passes by. Mothers with strollers come up and say hi, NYPD cars slow down on Driggs to honk and wave, shirtless muscle-rippling joggers remove their earbuds and stop for a chat, and little kids run over and high-five him. It’s no wonder he’s earned himself the unofficial title of Mayor of McCarren and the official title of Village Voice’s ‘best outdoor personal trainer in NYC’. Continue reading

Beastanetics Boot Camp: the Muffin Top/ Beer Gut Antidote


Spring is here (we promise) and since it’s finally going to get warmer, it’s time to maximize outdoor time. Same goes for working out, which is just one of the reasons why Beastanetics is so great. We happen to live next to a pretty sweet track and field and it’s time to take advantage! We’re talking FRESH AIR, people. Remember what that feels like?

Beastanetics is a 6-week, 12-session program run entirely in McCarren Park, and rest assured, it will have you looking positively fierce by Summer. Led by Tim Haft and his knowledgeable, supportive, and welcoming staff, the intro training sesh is a steal at $144 (includes all 12 sessions). That’s cheaper than an indoor gym membership where you’ll wait an hour to run on a treadmill in a sweaty florescent box (can you tell how much I love gyms?).

The next session begins Monday, April 14 and Greenpointers has teamed up with Beastanetics to give first-time students 10% off the registration fee with code FIRSTTIMEBEAST. Virgin Beasts can also try a one-time free trial; drop-in classes (space permitting) are $15.  Register here!  Continue reading

“Life is a Nightmare” + More Brooklyn Music Videos & Show Roundup 3.6

I have cool music videos to share and show recommendations for the remainder of the week, often overlapping from the very same band.

Workout shot the video for “Life is a Nightmare” on India Street, among other locations in Greenpoint and North Brooklyn. The song struts along with crunchy guitar riffs, giving the titular chorus a contradictory feel-good sentiment. You can check the band out tonight at the Stonewall Inn (53 Christopher Street). A party bus will pick up at Bia in South Williamsburg. More details here. Continue reading
