Is today the grossest day of the year? It just might be, it’s almost like you need a machete to cut through the humidity, hopefully tonight’s storms will help. Anyway, let’s not beat about the bush as you have weekend plans to make…
A new group exhibition, No Window Shopping, opens Thursday evening at The Yard. Featuring a variety of works on wood and canvas from BEAU, Sam Kirk, and URNY, Phase ii of No Window Shopping aims to highlight current events and local affairs including affordable housing, quality of life, normalizing relations with Cuba and the purpose that respectively defines – and ultimately connects -those relationships.
Continuing a rotating program of local artists exhibited at The Yard’s Brooklyn location, No Window Shopping will be on display through September 18th.

Someone is totally in the dog house for giving this Judy Blume book away. Spotted all over Greenpoint:
I accidentally gave this book away on Saturday July 25th in a box on the corner of Green & Franklin. This book is extremely important to my wife. It was a keepsake from her mother and is irreplaceable. On the inside cover is a note that reads “Christmas 1991.” If you happened to pick up this book can you please get in touch with me.
Ridgewood’s Onderdonk House is the kind of place you’d visit on an elementary school field trip. Historical lectures, pumpkin picking, craft classes and guided tours hosted by the local historical society are some of the activities typically provided by the space’s curators; save for one August weekend each year when the folks behind the Out In The Streets fest move in with craft beers, food vendors and all of your favorite local indie rock bands.
This year’s fest, which starts on Saturday, August 1, has a great lineup, headlined by dream-pop vets Mr. Twin Sister, slack punks Total Slacker, and Slumberland-devotees Air Waves. Local vendors curated by Ridgewood Market will he hocking their wares, plus food and drink from Archie’s, Montana’s Trailhouse, The Doe Foundation, Wyckoff Starr and Strangeways will be available.
We’re not sure how no one saw this happening, but talk about persistence!
A thief sawed down a 25-foot tree to steal a bicycle locked to its trunk last week, according to locals.
Christopher Ryan said his friend locked a bike to a tree in front of 242 Grand St., between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street, overnight last week — a move Ryan acknowledged was illegal and carries a $1,000 fine.
Vice had their new office (in the former Glasslands location) on South Second robbed of over $16,000 worth of laptops last week. From Brooklyn Paper:
sometime during the evening of July 14, and made off with 11 laptops worth over $16,000, according to a report.
The thief entered the building at S. Second Street and Kent Avenue through a second-story window that was left open overnight, police said.
Staffers realized they had been ripped off the next morning when they discovered the MacBooks had vanished and some of the office’s furniture had been disturbed, cops said.
