  • Need a Nanny?
    We relocated to New Jersey so my wonderful nanny of three years is available. Collette Prince has extensive experience with babies, toddlers and kids of all ages. She's extremely knowledgeable yet also knows how to defer to her charge's parents (I find some childcare providers struggle with this) and she's a true professional who you ...

    Can anyone recommend a gastroenterologist (tummy) doc in the area? Someone who listens and you don't have to wait 3 months to see? Dr. David Byrnes has been recommended to me but he is retired.

  • Terrible smell lower park slope / gowanus - toxic??
    I have lived in the neighborhood about 8 years, and every so often there is this disgusting smell that wafts up from the gowanus area. My guess is one of the industrial plants or work on the F train in that area. Recently it has been much worse. smells like burnt toast / burning hair. ...

  • Are movie shoots in this area becoming excessive?
    Does anyone else agree that movie shoots in the area are becoming too frequent? They’re a major inconvenience for parking, driving, etc. And as far as I see, these shoots serve zero benefits for local residents and businesses.

    This is the house where the late Evelyn and Everett Ortner hosted receptions and dinners in their elegant Victorian parlor floor, as part of their efforts to entice young couples to purchase brownstones in Park Slope and Brooklyn’s other historic neighborhoods (and to encourage bankers to mortgage these properties).
