  • Dog Owners Informal Poll
    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?

    Thanks.

  • 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?

  • What is your favorite PH block?
    Of course I am going to be partial to my block (Prospect between Vanderbilt and Underhill) but besides that, my favorite is Sterling between Vanderbilt and Underhill. The buildings on that block are so pretty and well maintained (most of them anyway).

    My block is great except for that Haitian Church. It's ...

    That's right, fellow PHers. Our replica of the defunct C train was so exact (and accompanied by a boom-box soundtrack of "Eye of the Tiger" and Cherry Pie") that our team was awarded Best of Show. This honor (and cash) was due in large part to DW's design.

  • 481 Prospect Place Condos
    Has anyone checked these out? I saw a listing in the Times today, $560k for a 1274 sq. ft. unit that looks like a duplex.

    It's listed by the developer's group: http://www.thedevelopersgroup.com/apartments/apartment.aspx?webid=10669

    If anyone checks this out I'd be interested in hearing about it.

    What happened to Muddy Waters? Is there any plan for something else to move in there? Not that I frequented it much (a bit overpriced, not always friendly), but nice to have around nonetheless.
