NEXT WEEK: Tree Care Workshop

Filed under: Greenpoint Magic 

So now Greenpoint has a bevy of new trees that have been planted by the city. That’s all well and good, but what next? I suppose you could post signs on them calling your neighbors “slobs” and “sluts” (as this property owner has done*) or you can attend the tree care workshop being hosted next week at the Green Oaks Club.

Per the notification I received, in this workshop you will:

…learn to care for young street trees, receive free tools, and get a Parks Volunteer Permit, which will allow you to care for street trees and greenstreets. Advance registration is required; space is limited.

There are still slots left, so if you are interested in attending please register by sending an email to channaly.oum(at) or call (212) 676-1929. Be sure to provide your name, email address and/or phone number.

*This property is for sale as a “development site”.

Given its prime location— and by “prime” I mean McGuinness Boulevard facing the Pulaski Bridge, one can only hope it is razed to build (more) luxury condominiums.

  2. This is one hell of a garage sale they have there. You go to the back of this building through the alley on the right and the owner has a small warehouse full of bowling balls, clothes, jackets, etc, nothing from after 1982. It was kitschy AND a fire hazard and simultaneously one of the best and worst moments of my life.

Tell me what you're thinking...
