This week's Brooklyn Paper has a few stories about the Heights including a jewelery designer suing the Gap for allegedly stealing her design, the drama around the fate of the oak tree at 145 Hicks and a nabe woman who is giving away her never worn wedding dress:
Brooklyn Paper: New $3,000 Wedding Dress Up For Grabs: Something old, something new, something borrowed, something really expensive won in a bizarre, only-in-New York wedding dress contest!
A Brooklyn Heights woman whose Big Day last year was almost ruined after her bridal shop went out of business on the eve of her wedding now wants to give away the lush silk gown that she’d ordered but never wore.
The $3,000 Mariana Hardwick-designed gown did show up about three days before the nuptials, but by then, bride Elisa Zuritsky had already given up and purchased a “back-up dress.” Her fancy gown — still in its box — was simply tossed into her fiance’s closet.
Now, Zuritsky wants closure.
“I’ll admit it, I was angry at the dress,” said Zuritsky, a former writer for “Sex & the City.” “But it’s a beautiful gown and I went to a lot of trouble to get it. Someone should have it. It deserves to have a life.”
Hence, the essay contest, which Zuritsky has posted at www.takemydress.com.
