Greenpoint This Week: Delight Brunch, Rooftop Gardening, And Extra


Have a nice weekend Greenpoint! Summer is in full swing and we expect a busy weekend outdoors.

This week we rounded up some of the best Mexican restaurants in Brooklyn and also reported that Smorgasburg is making a return to Williamsburg at the end of Jane. Edy’s will be hosting a pop-up brunch with Lebanese-Korean Pride this weekend! Pride is here all month and many Greenpoint companies are celebrating with a new charitable initiative: Greenpoint Pride.

For greenpointers who itch to use their Greenthumbs, we’ve shared local rooftop farmer Annie Novak’s guide to rooftop gardening. Do you prefer to browse the fruits of another farmer’s labor? Domino Park Greenmarket returns this Sunday!

New graduates landing at Greenpoint can also check out our brand new guide to life after college in North Brooklyn.

District 33 voters can also read our voter guide for the upcoming June 21 primaries. If you’re planning an election night party, check out Greenpoint’s own Party by Numbers, which designs luxury party kits in a sustainable way.

And of course, be inspired by our summer fashion Sundae series and see if your weekend fit is captured by our local photo.
