🌱 Push Against Greenpoint Plant + Court Street Theater


Happy Saturday, Brooklyn! I’m your host Patrick Murray here with 3 new tracks to start your weekend.

First, today’s weather forecast:

Heavy snow early with highs of 20 and lows of 13.

Here are the top stories in Brooklyn today:

  1. Environmental activists urge the state to block a permit that would grant a controversial upgrade to a Greenpoint natural gas plant. National Grid’s plant plans include adding two new liquid gas vaporizers. Environmental groups are fighting to prevent new fossil-fuel machines from being set up in the city. (THE CITY)
  2. Regal UA attributed the closure of the long-running Court Street Theater on lease disagreements. The company claimed it was unable to complete negotiations with the landlord for fair and sustainable rent. Although often bringing a rowdy environment to life, the theater was loved by many downtown Brooklyn residents. (Brooklyn Daily Eagle)
  3. LaGuardia Airport recently received major upgrades at Terminal B, which serves American Airlines, JetBlue, Air Canada and many other major airlines. Improvements include a new west airbridge, as well as a second concourse. (Brooklyn Daily Eagle)
