What’s on your mind? Comment away!

This week, we’re adding a giveaway to Open Thread Wednesday! Woo hoo!! Details after the jump.

The folks at Manhattan Fruitier makers of the best fruit baskets in all the land are offering a super-fantasic Cortland Fruit Basket to one lucky BHB reader.

There are two ways to enter — post an original fruit themed  haiku below in the comments below (you must provide a valid email address to qualify) or Tweet it to @bkheightsblog  with hashtag #bhbcfb.  We’ll choose one winner at random.  The decision of the judges is final.

Good luck!

    Mallory, the most westerly staircase at the High Street Station was sealed off, and a wall erected on the corridor above, to reduce the amount of area where miscreants could lurk. Don’t forget that the High Street station was once the main subway station for workers going to the Brooklyn Navy Yard—which was in high gear during all of World War II. Now, although at times it seems crowded, the number of people passing through is much smaller than during the WW2 years.

    I also remember the beautiful mahogany escalators there, which never broke down, unlike the “modern” stainless steel ones installed last century.

    Another anti-Ahava product protest in front of Ricky’s tonight at around 6pm. Approximately 25 protesters, this time with a mini-marching band to crank up the volume.

    Meanwhile the Ahava products are prominently displayed at Ricky’s with a sign on the shelf directing customers to the products. I saw quite a few people inside Ricky’s purchasing Ahava products, likely as a show of support against the noisy protesters outside.
