A baby seal was spotted sunning itself beside the Newtown Creek at around 2 p.m. on Sunday, the Daily News reports. Unlike the dolphin that got stuck in the Gowanus Canal last year, the seal was totally fine. It was just chilling and catching some rays. The seal was discovered by “a group of teens […]
Have you ever wanted to slather poisonous, chemical-laced sludge all over your face and body? How does running an obstacle course made of jagged, sharp old car parts (“curated by some of Brooklyn’s best makers”) sound to you? Maybe you’d like to sit in a teepee made of old garbage and inhale the noxious fumes […]
This is just what Brooklyn needs! More tourists. Ugh. They should just shuttle them off to Brooklyn Heights: The circuit would focus on everything from Greenpoint’s coffee outpost Café Grumpy, where Lena Dunham’s character Hannah Horvath once slung lattes, to a Bushwick warehouse where Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) accidentally smokes crack. But don’t expect a glitzy […]

According to the original gangster of Williamsburg thrift shops, “everything about [the new location] will remain the […]
Prolific instrumental post rockers Russian Circles stopped by for two sold out shows at Bowery Ballroom and Saint Vitus. Below is a video of the complete Brooklyn set.

And no, using the word tragedy is not hyperbole. We love Glasserie and are dubious that it will be worth visiting once they lose their chef Sara Kramer. She says she’ll leave by the end of February at the latest. We’re just getting over Gwynnet St closing which, incidentally, is recovering nicely as Lachlan and still […]
Everything is better with its own soundtrack, even art. That is where Justin F. Valls comes in. This sound designer and photog combines his passions in a unique exhibition titled Peacock Farm, which strikes ears and eyes together telling the sequential story of a natural builder. Valls’ photography will stick around a while, but to get […]
The Viking invasion continues. First there were the Scandinavian Torst and Luksus, followed by Dirck the Norseman, Konditori and Aska. (Ok, Aska is technically on the border of Greenpoint). Now, Budin is open, serving up its own blend of “high-end Scandinavian roasts“: The $7 latte is here. The Nordic coffeehouse Budin opens this morning in Greenpoint, […]
Spotted on Freeman St in Greenpoint, care of Greenpointers.
