Has anyone ever had Grady’s Cold Brew coffee before? It’s a News Orleans style iced coffee made in Brooklyn, I believe in neighboring Greenpoint. I’ve only had “News Orleans style” coffee once at Blue Bottle Coffee and it was by far the strongest iced coffee I’d had ever had. Made me jittery all day. Almost too strong that it turned me off, maybe I’m just a bitch. Stumptown also jumped on the trend, and started selling iced coffee bottles in certain areas. I’m not sure how I would feel to drink an iced/chilled coffee which was brew a few days earlier (far fresher then anything from Dunkin Donuts), or out of a glass bottle (as beautifully designed it is). Grady’s is sold at Urban Rustic on McCarren in Williamsburg and The Brooklyn Kitchen.

Great prints by Two Arms Inc. of the two greatest hoods in all of Brooklyn. Add these to the long (growing) list of prints to buy.
So has anyone taken the East River Ferry yet? It’s still free for about a week and then it’s four bucks. Sounds amazing compared to taking the G-train this summer. It makes a number of nice stops in Greenpoint, Dumbo, two stops in Manhattan and a short walk from my place in Williamsburg. I’m on a boat badge anyone?

Dig the work of Chris Silas Neal who works up at Greenpoint’s Pencil Factory. His handwritten typography, colors, and textures makes his work really interesting and inspiring. My favorite piece is the above Fleet Foxes poster. I just love the color combo with the rad illustrations.
