Greenpoint This Week: Sippy Cafe, Google in Williamsburg, and More


Hello, Greenpointers.

In April, we celebrated all things sustainability and the environment. Learn more about eco-friendly schools in North Brooklyn with our latest series on Greenpoint’s history. And if you’ve been inspired to re-evaluate some of your habits, try this green dip from local Yasmina Backström, a more eco-friendly alternative to guacamole.

This week we seemed to have been brain drinking. While The Buttery Bar’s Ukraine fundraiser is over, there’s still time to check out The Shanty’s monthly reading series, which is sure to be a fun pairing of books and booze. We spoke to longtime bar Spuyten Duyvil about how they’ve pivoted to include more amaro drinks.

Leroy’s has added brunch to its menu, and North 3rd Street Market is returning to Williamsburg, but in a different form. Mexican bistro Xolo has just opened, alongside sister bar Bar Milagro.

Google will open a store in Williamsburg, confusing many of us who didn’t know Google had physical products for sale. Clay Space and Tula have teamed up to host some fun Mother’s Day events next weekend. We spoke to the owners of Sippy Cafe about an incident with a neighbor who used racial epithets in an emotionally charged rant against their business.

Here are some ways to let off steam this weekend – Baby’s All Right is hosting a fundraiser tonight to raise money for two Bushwick clubs that have suffered fire damage. New club Cafe Balearica brings Spanish disco vibes to North Brooklyn.

With the 2022 election cycle already well underway, a recent decision by the New York Court of Appeals means Greenpoint’s current political representation may be on hold.

New York Post reports that real estate in many parts of Brooklyn (including us!) is now more expensive than in Manhattan. Ouch!
