    Deep in the Tank With Noel Rose

    When Noel Rose first moved to New York City in 2002, he went on a job interview for a television production position and instead of leaving with a job, he left with yet another interview, this time for a position at one of the largest fish tank maintenance companies in America.

    Goodbye, Greenpoint Gazette!

    After two and a half exciting years, it’s finally time for me to hang up my press hat and bid farewell to the Greenpoint Gazette. I do so, however, with a tremendous amount of love and admiration for this newspaper, this community and this neighborhood. I started as the managing editor of the Greenpoint Gazette […]

    Fake It If You Don’t Belong: Fake AWP 2011

    When he was twenty-one, C.A.B. Fredericks went to the AWP (The Association of Writers & Writing Programs) Annual Conference on behalf of Spectrum, the undergraduate literary journal he was managing editor of at UCSB.

    The recent weather in New York has been an inconvenience to residents of the city to say the least. Public transportation delays, slippery sidewalks, and closures have left citizens frustrated and upset. But the weather hasn’t just affected people—it’s also had an impact on dogs.

    From the South to North Brooklyn: Mable’s Smokehouse

    Mable’s Smokehouse, Greenpoint’s first Southern-style BBQ outpost that opened its doors on January 24th, is just about as pared down as it gets. There are no bells and whistles, no fancy cocktails, no elaborate décor. What they’ve got instead is meat, potatoes, classic sides and a healthy dose of family tradition hailing all the way […]

    Law Enforcement for Cyclists is Greeted with Hostility

    Because of the nature of the city, many New Yorkers don’t have their driver’s licenses, choosing to commute on two wheels instead of four.

But there’s a big difference between fantasy and real life, and when it comes to screenwriting chops nobody knows more than Jacob […]
