All killer, no filler this week (which is a nice way of saying I’m too fucking tired to write the 100 somethingth intro for this thing).
There was no one there to defend the bridge with wolves and swords, but at least phase one of the Kosciuszko Bridge’s disassembly was a bit less dramatic than expected. It’s central section was transported to New Jersey (oh the shame) yesterday by tugboats to be recycled. Implosions are planned for the remaining sections later […]
With the dog days approaching at a full sprint, releases have slowed up a bit. As always in metal, however, just because you haven’t heard of a band (or can’t pronounce their name) doesn’t mean they’re not killing it, so make sure to dig a little as August sets in. Who knows what unholy monster […]
Happy Independence Day weekend, heathens. I hope your celebration of liberty (or funeral procession, given the way things are going) is filled with beers, boats, and Pantera—as it always has been and always will be.
No visit to New York is complete without a visit to the North Brooklyn neighborhoods of Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick. Formerly three working-class and industrial neighborhoods,
It’s almost July 4th! For the last two years, the Macy’s fireworks were shot from barges close to the Brooklyn Bridge, but this year the barges are closer to North Brooklyn and Long Island City.

More information at mccarrenpark.com. McCarren Park pool is now one of three pools in the area, though it’s North Brooklyn’s only public pool and, best of all, […]
As Greenpoint continues to morph into Williamsburg north, the chef behind Harlem’s Red Rooster has announced a new venture in the neighborhood. The NY Post reports that Marcus Samuelsson plans to open a new restaurant at the Greenpoint, a 40-story condo-monstrosity at the end of India Street. A lease has been signed for a 4,000 square foot space […]
Now that the new Kosciuszko Bridge is officially open, the city has vowed to demolish the old one. Dates have not been confirmed for the two-day demolition, but the city plans to begin sometime in July. Thousands have already shown interest in the demolition of the bridge, but until now no one has pledged to defend […]
I thought it was just my imagination when I started watching Radiohead’s new video for Man Of War, but as confirmed by Gothamist the video was filmed in Brooklyn. Look out for shots in Greenpoint’s Cooper Park as well as Gardiner Ave in Bushwick. Check it out below:
