Greenpoint this week: Angels Cafe, Our Voices exhibit and more

Hello Greenpointers,

Looks like it’s shaping up to be another dreary and gray weekend. Wake me up when summer has officially started.

Take a first look at a cool new exhibit coming to North Brooklyn – a celebration of fifty years of neighborhood activism. Meet the new resident of Newtown Barge Park, a gorilla named Peace.

DEC delayed its decision to grant National Grid permits in Greenpoint, for the millionth (ok, seventh) time.

The recent court decision could challenge Greenpoint’s political representation.

Get your bagels with a charity side at the brand new Angels Cafe. Other openings this week include Fan Fried Rice Bar and Hungry Burrito. Community Cookbook featured a cocktail recipe from recently opened Mexican restaurant Xolo.

In music news, we spoke to Jeremy from Jeremy and the Harlequins about his band’s new album. We also spoke to Caroline Lazar of Bungalow Music School.

North Brooklyn hosts many trivial parties. Find out which one is right for you here.

This weekend offers plenty of ways to roll up your sleeves and give back. Get inspired by our weekend roundup.

Last but not least, you may have seen the viral TikTok of two guys sitting shirtless on our famous Xi’an local dishes. We spoke to one and got the scoop on #TheLedge.
