Final Montague Summer Space Sunday

This just in from Montague BID – the schedule for Sunday’s final Summer Space.  Get ready the Heights Players will be performing and there will be volleyball and skateboarding.

Update: 9/27 Due to rain here’s the new schedule:
It’s raining! We’re shifting some of the activities for Montague Street’s Summer Space event to the late afternoon, when it’s supposed to dry out a bit. See below for a revised schedule:

12:00 volleyball (as scheduled)
3:30 Heights Players perform excerpts from “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”
4:00 all-ages parade of decorated bikes, trikes, scooters and strollers
4:30 kids yoga from Yoga People

All-day activities (skateboarding, drawing lessons, chess, basketball, face painting, outdoor lounge, sidewalk sales, etc.) will be offered from 3 to 5.

New times are, of course, weather permitting! Look for notice boards along the street with revised information!

    Wow, I honestly don’t get what’s disrepectful about having a street fair on a Jewish holidays.

    In fact, I’m wondering if, as an atheist I should be offended by you chosing to observe a religious holiday.

    Summer Space is done by 6 pm, well before sun disappears into the horizon.

  • anon two

    summer space had an event on rosh hashanah last week. so lets not parse this with the times of sunset. It was poorly planned, they were wrong ,and need to apologize to the Jewish community of the Heights END OF STORY

    Oy vey !With all the comments on BHB about how much this Summer Space project sucks, why is there such tsoris? Top 10 Reasons this is a waste of energy:

    10) Barely anyone attends
    9) It actually makes the neighborhood quieter. (It’s a fact, I live on Montague)
    8) Most of the “action” (what little there is) is over by 4.
    7) Most of the city shuts down from sunset on, including schools. Isn’t that enough?
    6) The merchants are far more ambivalent to “the Space” than they are to Yom Kippur
    5) We Jews are a still a minority of the general population, even here in NYC.
    4) I see no observance of Ramadan or Easter on Montague and even Christmas Day doesn’t seem to roll up the Montague sidewalks
    3) We have enough religious strife in our world without being Holier Than Thou by insisting the world stops well before sundown on Yom Kippur.
    2) Trust me, your kids think “the Space” is lame. Should we close the playgrounds at 4pm too?
    1) Can’t we all just get along? I don’t hear any Christians complaining when the movie theaters and Chinese restaurants are open and crowded with Jews on December 24th & 25th.

    Settle down people. Take your hands off the keyboard and keep them in sight or I am calling the ACLU, the Anti-Defamation League and the Jonas Brothers.
    (Gotta entertain those kids!)

    My friend do you think a carnival on Good Friday eve would be appropriate and more than that would the Montague St. BID plan it?

  • my2cents

    I am reminded of an old adage (ca. 1998)
    “arguing on the internet is like competing in the special olympics. even if you win you are still retarded.”

    Please proceed to flail me for my insensitive comment. But you will only be proving the adage true. The argument on this thread is one of the most pointless i have read on the BHB. And there have been many pointless arguments…(many of which i have participated in I admit). The high holidays fell on weekends this year. You were bound to miss out on something or other. Get over it. Such a kvetch you are, anon.

  • RatNYC

    I think you anon should apologize for even suggesting I’m an anti-semite. You don’t know me or what my religion is, if I am or not part of the Jewish community of the Heights or whether I observe Yom Kippur or not, and it should NOT MATTER anyway because my disagreeing with your views does not make me or anybody for that matter an anti-semite. Your nasty and baseless accusation proves that in your heart body and soul, you are just a psycho.

  • Bob

    How dare they schedule Yom Kippur OR Summer Space during a Yankee-Red Sox game? Or during Sunday Night Football?

  • anon too

    Dear Miss RAT
    Your protests that you are not an antisemite are over the that as it may. Montague st is DEAD anyway and the Montague St. BID is just putting the finishing touches on it.
    There are many other great, more interesting and more welcoming places to shop. I have even heard people say the Heights is over… Heaven forbid… I live here.

    the “anons” sound like a certain former BHA governor that I know…

    By this logic, I suppose they should not have had the San Gennaro festival last week.

  • Bob

    So are ANONYMOUS, anon, anon too, and anon two all different people? Are they related? Are they multiple personalities all living in one person? Who is the original and which are the copies? I demand that all the other anons stop hiding behind anon. Be original, use a new name like: poster boy, joe, junior or stinky or mayor mike.

    Or in some cases: incoherent or non-linear.

  • RatNYC

    @anon: Miss? from where in my comments you inferred my gender? did you use the same logic which made you conclude I’m anti-semite? wouldn’t that logic make you a sexist? Your crazy rambling on the other hand, do shed some light on the kind of person you are. Get some help.

  • Clarknt67

    Anti-semetic is so over-the-top.

    What is the logic? Is it a historical fact that Hitler started by tempting Jewish children away from their faith by offering face-painting at at street fairs?

    The accusation is so absurd as to suggest this blog is being punk’d by a troll.

  • Heights

    Our Lady of Lebanon is having a “mini food festival” on October 3 and 4th. Someone please tell them to cancel it. I’m sure it’s someone’s holiday or holiday eve.

    Anon two – not sure who Judy is but it’s not me. Stop assuming you know, you don’t.
