    I am feeling a trend this week…are you becoming one of ‘those guys’ ? those grammar guys? as long as you dont do it in bars i guess….

  3. Right now, I’m working in the Chelsea. Later I’ll go home to the Brooklyn and possibly head back to the Manhattan this evening. In all cases, I’ll take subway.

  4. perhaps the author was talking about the point that is green, not Greenpoint. the maybe?
