  • Contest ideas?
    We just got a donation of a really spiffy item that anybody in Prospect Heights should love. Now, all we need is a contest to give it away. I was thinking something like a "send in your ProHo cuties" photo contest. Any other ideas?

    Is washing your dog a big pain?

    Would you consider supporting a 'dog wash' where you could wash & groom your own dog for a nominal price?

    Worth it or worthless?

  • ProHo-->CroHo-->Lefferts
    I live on Washington between Eastern Pkwy and Empire (closer to Empire). It is officially Crown Heights (I think), but feels more like Prospect Heights. In any event, nothing is going on over here. Why can't you ProHoers bring some action (be it bars, sushi, heating oil, whatever) down this way?
