Bad weekend for subway travel. There is no service on the L train this weekend, and the C train does not run from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Clearly the MTA wants you to stay in Brooklyn and go to TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint instead. And you have the misfortune of living in Manhattan, remember that the East River Ferry is the transportation partner for TASTE, and will be offering regular service from East 34th Street and Wall Street to Williamsburg.
TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint is a culinary benefit to build the Northside Town Hall, a joint project between NAG & the People’s Firehouse. This outdoor celebration of North Brooklyn’s local flavor is held rain or shine, featuring sample tastes from over 40 of the neighborhood’s best restaurants, breweries, and wineries, along with live music and more… This is one of the major fundraisers to raise $$ to build the Town Hall and WE NEED VOLUNTEERS to make it a success!
