Two Trees has a new proposal for the area just north of Domino Park. Like the Domino Sugar complex, the proposal is over-the-top, ambitious, and largely out of scale with the rest of the neighborhood. But now that the quaint, lovable Williamsburg of old is ruined anyway, we say bring it on. From Curbed: Developers […]
This is very sad news to hear that this local Greenpoint staple has closed. The Garden’s owner says the store couldn’t keep up with online shopping and chain grocery stores. They shut down on Sunday and will be missed. From their Facebook page: It’s time to say goodbye and thank you. After 25 years in […]
We can’t say we’re going to miss Cafe De La Esquina, because it kinda blew. But we definitely don’t want to see the iconic Wythe Diner lose it’s home.

The towers will be constructed at Greenpoint Landing and will be 30 and 40 stories high, housing 745 insanely expensive apartments. That’s a couple thousand more people on your G […]
Long time North Brooklyn staple and friendly neighborhood dive, Rosemary’s Greenpoint Tavern, will close its doors after 66 years. The closing, which will be made official on Feburary 28th of this year, is a simple product of a deal made by land-hungry developers, and the gentrification phenomena that poses a constant threat to today’s urban […]
Shayz Lounge, the beloved bar with the corny name at 130 Franklin Street, has announced that it’s closing on January 20. It’s another victim of the insane gentrification that’s hit the neighborhood.
