Sunday Service at The Woods featuring live music, football and a special menu by Landhaus



Sunday Service at The Woods

The Woods is the place to be on Sundays. Starting at 2pm, Landhaus offers a special Sunday roast menu that changes weekly, along with their standard menu offerings. Football is on at the back bar with audio all day. And don’t let the chilly weather get you down — their heated back bar and garden is open year round — a treat during those colder months.

Plus, there’s live music from Sammy Miller and The Congregation, a seven-piece jazz ensemble, that blends far ranging gospel, folk, soul, and even comedic influences into a new musical hybrid they’ve coined as joyful jazz. Get yourself to Sunday Services – your soul will thank you. The Congregation’s Sunday Service residency continues at The Woods every Sunday at 7PM.

Interactive map plots every sex offender in NYC


Greenpoint and Williamsburg only have a handful of convicted sex offenders, but Bushwick is a different story:

New York State, like many states, allows you to search for a sex offender. The Empire State only lets you map individual sex offenders. You can’t plot a map of all of the sex offenders currently registered around your block or your neighborhood. For example, if you live on the Lower East Side, you can’t see all the offenders near you. In an effort to make this data more accessible, we’ve (literally) put every sex offender in New York City on the map. Just click on each point to view pictures, name, offense, and a link to the full rap sheet provided by NYS Criminal Justices…Anyone who uses this information to injure, harass or commit a criminal act against any person may be subject to criminal prosecution.

Graffiti wars in Bushwick as artist murals are replaced by corporate ads


credit Bushwick Daily

Sadly, this is a fitting metaphor for what’s happening throughout Brooklyn.

On 247 Starr St., near the Jefferson L train stop, a billboard plastered with AT&T ads covers a mural where the “Bushwick Collective” signature can still be spotted in the corner.

Movie posters and more AT&T ads were recently put on the side of 427 Troutman St., covering the only work that a group of Russian artists did outside of their home country. [Read more...]

Eyewitness gives gruesome details about the man beaten to death outside the Charleston

michael-sappLast week we were sad to report that 33-year-old Michael Sapp, who was an employee of Williamsburg’s The Bagel Store, had passed away. Details are still spotty, but an eyewitness related what he saw to Gothamist. He claims that bystanders stood idly by taking pictures of Sapp instead of calling 9-11. This story just keeps getting worse:

Christopher, who did not want his last name used because he lives in the neighborhood and fears retaliation, said he was just outside of the bar with a few friends last Saturday when two men approached, stopped just outside the fence around the outdoor seating area, and one of them, skinny and bleeding profusely through his white shirt, began yelling at the bouncer to let him in…
[Sapp is] like, “I’m gonna fucking kill everybody! Where the fuck is that guy? He needs to come out here right now. I wanna fight him!” He’s screaming at everyone and he’s cussing. The security guard was like, “Dude, you should leave. You should have never came back. Why did you come back?” [Read more...]
