An inspiring company needs an inspiring office. For holistic wellness media company MindBodyGreen, a run-of-the-mill office would not do.

They found a promising loft space with soaring ceilings and Manhattan Bridge views from Two Trees, which offers a variety of spaces in Dumbo, flexible leasing terms, and competitive pricing to accommodate creative companies like MindBodyGreen. (more…)

If you’re in search of an evening to take in some cool art displays, check out the Dumbo First Thursday Gallery Walk.

Dumbo’s art galleries are open to the public later than usual on the first Thursday of every month from 6 to 9 p.m. The galleries have special events and receptions for participants on the walk, and area restaurants and bars offer deals and discounts.

The event allows Dumbo to show off its arts community, an important part of Dumbo for decades. Artists began to move in after the deindustrialization of the area in the 1970s, and even after the neighborhood’s transformation in the past decade or so, many still continue to work or live in the area.

The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is growing. Supporters and business leaders from Brooklyn’s major economic hubs will raise funds to complete more of the pathway and honor those who have helped at its annual fundraising gala on Wednesday, November 9.

Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is working with the NYC Department of Transportation to create a pathway for runners, cyclists and pedestrians stretching from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge that links open spaces and parks together. Thus far, six miles of the Greenway have been completed, leaving eight to go.

Started in 2004, Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is the nonprofit organization committed to the establishment, development and long term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. Broken into 23 distinct segments, the Greenway will be completed as funds are raised, the NYC DOT announced in 2012.

There will be a champagne reception, awards program, dinner and live music by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra at Wednesday’s gala. It will take place at The William Vale in Williamsburg from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.
