When the weather gets warm, finding a bar in Manhattan where you can drink outside is next to impossible. The few places that are suitable for outside libations are always too crowded. Thankfully, North Brooklyn has you covered. From Freehold’s grassy courtyard in South Williamsburg, to the impressive skyline vistas at Greenpoint’s Brooklyn Barge Bar, North […]
If the MTA follows through on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new proposal to avert the long-dreaded L train shutdown, renters who signed leases in the affected area over the last year will be the biggest winners.
Seeking to create a flexible, affordable co-working solution, KettleSpace caters to New Yorkers ready to break out of the chaotic coffee shop without paying for the large price tag of big box co-working giants.
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.
Clearly, the MTA, DOT and Cuomo are just trying to drive us insane. What’s more, there’s no meeting planned until the end of the month: Cuomo is calling on the MTA board to hold an emergency public meeting to hear the proposal and decide whether to pursue the plan, which would reduce a 15-month full […]
We’ve pretty much always had a “top album” list here at Freedubya, but we’ve essentially been doing a more detailed version of it for the past five. Five years. That’s a milestone! Something to reflect on, I suppose. It feels like this list gets weirder and weirder every year, as Williamsburg gets… well, more and more “normal,” via J Crews, Apple Stores and Chipotles.

I guess you, the reader, will be the judge of that. Anyway – peep these albums. We liked ’em a whole lot.
There are plenty of amazing pizza joints in North Brooklyn and two have made the Times’ list for best slice: Paulie Gees and Williamsburg Pizza. We also have a Joe’s Pizza on Bedford Ave (the original in Greenwich Village made their list as well) so technically there are three in the top ten. Local’s favorite Vinnie’s […]
The new bar is part of the Williamsburg Hotel at 96 Wythe Avenue. It looks lovely, that is, if you can afford it: The Water Tower bar, which opened on Nov. 16, is across the street from the former Rosenwach Water Tower Factory — now the site of yet another boutique hotel, The Hoxton. The project comes […]
Our process is similar to a CSA, but you choose exactly what you want to buy.
The Daily Mail reported a few years ago about the presence of Neo-Nazis in Greenpoint. A local store even received criticism for selling Nazi jewelry on Manhattan Ave. Now, Greenpointers reports spotting troubling white supremacist graffiti on Greenpoint’s waterfront: Graffiti with the words “Wielka Polska” (Great Poland in English) and the Celtic cross, which according […]
