Photographers and filmmakers, your lives are about to get a little easier. CSI Rentals is opening a new location in Bushwick where you can rent pro cameras, lenses, gels, video equipment and sound gear. Just to clarify, CSI:Miami is not coming to Bushwick, although it really should.
The Grand Opening will take place tonight from 5-7:30pm and will feature live demos of the latest from Sony HD Cinema (camera nerds, go wild), shooting and work flow samples, and as the flyer states (in caps) “FREE GIFTS FOR ALL.” What will these gifts be? We have no idea, but my best guess is a rental coupon or maybe a camera strap? CSI also promises that you will meet friends. So if you want friends, a new camera strap, and some free snacks, this could be the night that changes your life 4EVER. The new location is at 1138 Flushing Avenue, between the Morgan and Jefferson L stops.
Seriously though, it’s about time we had a place to rent equipment locally, since the hood has become home to so many professional photographers, filmmakers, and artists, as well as photo studios, sound stages, and galleries. Also it’s worth it to note that they have a delivery option, for the super lazy or super busy among us (could go either way on this one).
FREE GIFTS FOR ALL!
Have fun and be safe today, friends.
If you need some tips on local parties – we got you covered!
There are so many fun events, I think I’m just going to bar hop. What are you doing?
If you have any great costumes idea, please share – I got nothing.
See you later!

All of my friends who haven’t been priced out of Greenpoint have made the strategic decision to never leave their apartments. And with a view like this, overlooking Manhattan Ave, Nassau Ave and the city skyline, why ever leave?
In the meantime she is holding Public Sewing Days on Thursdays from 12-5pm at 75 East 4th St.
Amanda is loads of fun so when I asked to take her portrait, I knew that just one shot could not capture the many colors and flavors of her wild and quirky personality.
Not to mention she owns like 5 million pairs of eyeglasses! I asked Amanda a few questions about her obsession with specks when we did this super fun stop motion video shoot.
Read the interview and watch the video after the jump.
Music for the video is by local band High Teen Boogie.
We were really pissed when we saw this post by Brooklyn Magazine that said, “Greenpoint looks like the poorest, most dangerous neighborhood in New York City” based on the results of a stupid poll of people judging neighborhoods based on google street view images. Everyone know those photos are lame.
Last week was such a hard week for us here in 11222, and it felt like they were kicking us while we were down. Let’s show all those bozos who thought Greenpoint is a dump that it is really charming in it’s own gritty and colorful way!

I flipped when I saw these “so new york!” portraits from photographer Wayne Lawrence of Orchard Beach AKA The Bronx Riviera via Tree House Brooklyn’s Facebook.
