It’s no secret that the G train is out between Long Island City and Greenpoint (Court Sq to Nassau Ave) making traveling to Greenpoint particularly difficult. But fear not, Films on the Green fans: We’re making it easier to plan your route to this week’s screening at Transmitter Park!
Getting to Greenpoint…
The MTA is dispatching free shuttle buses along two routes: one from Court Square to Nassau Av and the other one to Lorimer St. However, there is also the option of the B43 (between Prospect-Lefferts Gardens and Greenpoint), the B62 (between Queens Plaza and Downtown Brooklyn), and the B24 (between Greenpoint and Williamsburg Bridge Plaza). More info: web.mta.info/nyct/service/bus/bklnsch.htm
As subway travel in Greenpoint is limited to the G, train service gets a little dicey. However, the Nassau Av stop is not a far walk from Transmitter Park. You can still take the L train to the G up to Nassau Av and walk from there! More info: http://web.mta.info/maps/submap.html
Take the newly reinstated East River Ferry from E 34th St/Midtown. The ferry stops across the river at Hunters Point South/Long Island City and continues on to India St/Greenpoint. The view is incredible and once you’ve reached Greenpoint, it’s only a short walk to Transmitter Park! More info: www.eastriverferry.com
Do good by the environment and bike to Transmitter Park! Yay exercise!

Who else besides the French would make a movie about a mustache?
Films on the Green is back on this Friday at Riverside Park with the thriller The Moustache:
One day, Marc asks his wife Agnès if he should shave his moustache. She is unsure, as she has always known him with a moustache. He shaves it off anyway, hoping to surprise her and his friends. But no one reacts as expected. In fact, nobody seems to notice at all.
Wishing everybody a Happy 4th from Films on the Green!! Note: There will NOT be a screening this Friday
