I saw a few people in yellow vests on different days counting pedestrians (they told me after I inquired) who said they were from the "spice factory." Couldn't get more info out of them seemed like they maybe didn't know any…
Ah, and in true form, Mr. Eugene is out breaking some more rules to show us all what an upstanding council member he'll be if he wins again. I expect it will also be the last bit of effort he puts into the position if elected u…
My sense is that social media is a very poor indicator of political support, especially in a district like ours.
This is all about church appearances and senior center funding. My sense is that the turnout will be re…

There is very little advertising revenue available to news and quasi-news websites, and almost no subscriber revenue. So, journalism has become sort of a hobby that one does in a addition to a full time job. ...it also doe…
Wonder where everyone will go to comment. Jezebel, jalopnik? Gawker would have been the natural flow but, well you know
Someone has created gothamissed.com.
Many of the regulars are there. Yay!
I passed by a truck with bike docks on my way to the subway (Prospect Park) this morning.
Bike docks have been spotted being installed behind the Firestone on Sullivan Place (near the corner of Bedford Avenue).
Hi, This blog might help:

"That means the project will have to go through the formal public review process known as ULURP."
Hahahahahahahahaha! Shall I bring the popcorn?
It's interesting how there didn't seem to be much interest in having it landmarked.
I'll take your word. ...and am almost ready to declare Ebbets Field Apartments surrounded. http://www.brooklynian.com/discussion/46714/ebbets-field-apartments-get-a-make-over
If that site at 103 Empire (the corner o…
Today, some kind of work was spotted at the former subway station for the Consumers Park Brewery. (this complex became the "Spice Factory")

@dmiami2 Yes, that lot is now confirmed. "The partners are also buying two adjacent lots at 964-968 Franklin Avenue."

Lights were left on last night by P.S. 375 on McKeever Place. All the other lights that I saw on my way home were off.
However, from my window, I could see that some lights on Bedford Avenue were left on.
One can hear and watch the various Mas bands practicing around the area in advance of the events.
I heard one while on my way to the last meetup of posters at Berg'n.
Speaking of Berg'n, Go…
They already have loaded the police bright lights and barricades onto the sidewalk.
Last night I spotted members of the NYPD apparently patrolling Ebbets Field patio area. I guess this is also in preparation for J'Ouvert as Caray Gabay was shot a…
I'm curious how this would affect residents who live right on the route. Are barricades going up along the road? Can we not join in without being screened?
I live just north of the route. I wonder if people who are simply…
They might create cross walks for people who are not in costume.
I'm interested in how aggressively the NYPD clears the surrounding streets and areas.
They somehow have to keep the parade route distinct, so they can sow …
The cleaners in the building on the east side of the street have moved around the corner to a new location. That makes 6 vacant store fronts in a row in this building. With all the focus on Franklin Ave (mostly north of EP) …
