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) …
For some reason, I though we would get a boutique grocer.
I'm pretty sure one of the earlier "coming soon" posters suggested that. Maybe they realized it wasn't worth competing with Wholesome? Who kn…
Mugofmead - just google 40 ounce wines
I did. I received this error message on the company's page: (http://fortyouncewines.com/retail/):

Agree with supplenuckles. I watched the speeches and found them unnecessarily personal and aiming a lot at this person. By the way, they serve that brand of 40 oz rose at other places in the city.
it's a bummer to watch literally one clueless lady become the scapegoat for everyone's pain over gentrification; made all the more easy to hate because we live in a patriarchal society that vilifies women ten fold for the…
CHop Shop Grub Shop used to be on Nostrand, but went out of business after it mocked the impact of Stop and Frisk.
Was it a coincidence or not? It's my understanding that restaurants frequently fail anyway. https://www.th…
Which received media in various sources.
I vaguely remember this. That was at the very least tacky and to…
I don't understand why dog owners let their dogs off their leash in public (i.e. outside of a dog run). I really don't. They really want to risk getting sued if doggie were to bite someone? (I don't care if your dog is the sweetest ever; every being…
I dunno, advertising the bullet holes and serving 40 oz bottles of rose in paper bags does come across as tone-deaf. And I'm a "newer" resident that a place like this is catering to.
I am a long-term resident. I was meh a…
