  • American Apparel?
    My wife says she noticed an American Apparel sign on the inside grating of the former Flatbush Paviliion movie theater? Might they be moving in? I had thought the gym was going to take the space, judging from a past member survey, but that's gone quiet.

    I may go broke with an ...

  • Attention Scooterists!
    I know there are one or two of you on here...

  • Park Slope: Will it Bite?
    Recently I've heard about a neighborhood to the south of us called "Park Slope." I think I'll check it out before the dreaded yuppie gentrifiers ruin it. Has anyone been there? Are the sidewalks safe for strollers?

  • Siegel at the Tea Lounge (posted by a partisan/newbie)
    I'm a proud resident of Prospect Heights, though "some of my best friends live in Park Slope." I got heavily involved in DDDb, and woke up 3 weeks ago to find myself the Brooklyn field coordinator in the campaign to elect Norman Siegel Public Advocate.

    I've arranged an informal get together with Norman ...

  • Bar Reis (5th Ave 6th)
    I took a trip down to the post office on 9th St to submit my passport application, and ended up having to wait 45 minutes for the clerk to return from her lunch break (despite what the U.S. Passport website says, the passport window is not open continuously from 9:30AM-3:30PM). To kill the time, ...

  • Decent Park Slope blogs?
    I really like Dope on the Slope for its excellent sporadic Park Slope coverage (and incredible close-up insect photos): http://meanderthal.typepad.com/dope/

    There's also "Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn." That name sounds a bit arrogant (sorry, it does), but I recently discovered it's a play on "Only the Dead Know Brooklyn," a 1935 short story ...
