There is a few new places in Greenpoint that I would like to mention about in this post since they are really interesting and quite worth to visit.
The first one is “Eckford Street Studio” on 70 Eckford Street , Brooklyn N.Y. 11222.
This May, a new art space opened on the border of Greenpoint and Williamsburg, just a few blocks from McCarren Park. Eckford Street Studio is a place for the neighborhood’s youngest generation of artists to connect to their community, explore art processes and materials, and discover their own ways of expressing themselves!
Kristin Melkin is a Greenpoint based artist, who believes exposure to art provides children with a critical means for engaging their world. For over twelve years she has been fostering art experiences for students of all ages in a variety of settings, including museums, public schools and non-profit organizations. She currently works as a Teaching Artist for the Guggenheim Museum’s Learning Through Art program, and as a Gallery Educator at the Noguchi Museum. She is also mom to her own toddler artist, and is thrilled to be working with the kids in her neighborhood!
The next one is absolutely great place to eat “Bread for the Eater” on 168 Driggs Ave , Brooklyn N.Y. 11222
On a recent walk to the part with my daughter we spotted some new place on at Driggs Ave and Diamond St witch is called “Bread for the Eater”, inside is a nice brick oven from the former pizzeria that was in the location previously. Din (owner), who also owns “Cheeky Sandwiches” on Orchard St in LES, described Bread For The Eater’s offerings of fresh baguettes and bread, croissants, roasted meats, small plates and they will have a beer and wine license. This is definitely an exciting new spot on “the other side” of McGuinness Blvd.
