After working on this space for seemingly an eternity today I discovered that Eastern District is (finally) set to open this upcoming Tuesday, November 30th. What can you expect? Well, the following photograph I shot might give you some indication!

Hello, Miss Heather –
This is Samara writing you. – I worked on the trivia fundraisers for the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen last year that you so kindly donated prints to.
I’m writing you with a request to give a shout out on NewYorkShitty for an event we’re having at the Greenpoint Shul.
It’s a kosher wine tasting in conjunction with Roebling Liquors Inc. and a vegetarian food pairing with a wine expert in celebration of Hanukkah. It will take place Friday, December 3rd just after Kabbalat Shabbat services which begin at 7:00 p.m at the Greenpoint Shul (108 Noble St.) We welcome donations to support the event (www.greenpointshul.org, click on “Donate”).
I’ve attached a jpg of the invitation. If you could post this, we’d greatly appreciate it.
Please come if you can…
Duly posted! I would also like to add that not only is the Rabbi who presides over this establishment, Maurice Appelbaum, an amazingly nice guy but the very building itself is an absolute treasure! Follows is a slide show I assembled last year to give you an idea of what I am talking about. Enjoy!

I was saddened to see this sign. I know the hood is changing but this was the first shop I went into upon moving here in 98. First, two Duane Reade’s now this!
This is the deli that Al (and a cat named Halloween) once presided over. What will come next is anyone’s guess. A nail salon perhaps? So it goes…
