Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: CLOSED

Small business owners who work long hours. If these folks were white and Christian the GOP would be all over this. But they are not so we have this. Ah, the hypocrisy!

In any case, gentle readers, do not be reluctant about forwarding this post to any/all elected officials— be they municipal, state or Federal— so as to make it crystal fucking clear to them that we— not simply the Yemeni-American Community— have a problem here. Solidarity is what gets shit done folks…

Spotted On Franklin Street: Grand Opening

I spied this while running errands this morning and felt it would be of interest to my fellow north ‘Pointers: a bodega has opened shop at 214 Franklin Street. I did not have the wherewithal to pop in (I got soaked while strolling the waterfront*) but at a casual glance it appears to sport the usual fare: diapers, toiletries, basic groceries with a little produce tossed in for fair measure.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Take The Bodega Challenge!

sandaTHUMBThis item comes courtesy of L Magazine’s publicist: a gentleman named Dan. He writes:

Us here at Electric Orange are fellow Greenpointers, and check out NY Shitty on daily basis.  We do a lot of stuff online with development, promotions and such, but our favorite work tends to be around the neighborhood. One of our local clients (The L Magazine) has a pretty rad promotion going on right now that I wanted to tell you about. It centers around the local bodega, and they are going to be crowning the best reader submitted NYC bodega come December. The person who submits the winning entry will get their favorite beer hand-delivered to them by The L, from their bodega, for a week.

We have so many great bodegas in Greenpoint, so I wanted to pass this along to you and your readers.

Indeed. What’s more, 42 bottles of beer is pretty darned sweet way to kick of the holiday season! You can learn more about this contest by pointing and clicking your way to L Magazine’s web site. NOTE: the deadline for submissions is December 17th.

New York Shitty Day Ender: A New Bodega For North Greenpoint

October 15, 2009 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

In addition to learning the good news about “El Blablazo”, I was pleased as punch to see the long-vacant space at 1068 Manhattan Avenue finally has a tenant. What’s more, it will be a bodega (or as I like to call them “deligros”).


Anyone who lives north of Freeman Street will attest that is there is a dearth of quality grocery stores (and many other necessities, like laundromats, for example) in far north Greenpoint. Hopefully Mini Mart will be a first step in redressing this. When will it open, you ask? I do not know— but I am going to keep swinging by until I can find someone to ask!

And that’s all she wrote.

UPDATE, October 16, 2009: This will be a 24 hour bodega. Huzzah!
