Hi Heather, this is James Jones. I’ve lived on Green St. for a very long time and I’m a big fan of Newyorkshitty.com. I am a filmmaker and a few months ago I had a chance to interview Steven Goldsholle, of Goldscholle plumbing on Manhattan Avenue,  a few days before he closed his business down. I made several film shorts from the interview. He talks about how Greenpoint has changed, the store’s history and his plans for retirement. If you think any of this may be of interest to your readers, please feel free to provide a link to this channel or one of the films. Either way, I’ll keep reading! Thanks.

Naturally I am not going to pass up a chance to share this. Without further ado, let ‘em roll!

Thanks so much for sharing this with me, James! A great many of us, including of course the local canines, miss us some Steve.

Not sure if you came across this divine structure previously, but I thought you should know about it.

Enjoy.

Nice. I for one am delighted the East River Ferry is back in service. No doubt a tourist or two has disembarked here to meet this, our proud ambassador. Welcome to Greenpoint!
