Greenpoint this week: street cleaning, Mitsuki Japanese market, etc.

Hello, Greenpointers.

Did you have the stamina to stand in that massive line up for the one night only collaboration between Greenpoint Fish and Taqueria Ramirez? Was it worth it? If it was, don’t tell me, ’cause I must have missed it

Greenpoint Fish got busy this week, collaborating further with Williamsburg’s restaurant Strangeways for a fundraising dinner to clean up New York Harbor. The Shanty has also done its part to raise funds for the same cause, with a birthday celebration for its gin’s namesake, Dorothy Parker.
