While technically in Cobble Hill… does anyone know if there will be ground-floor retail in the new Two Trees apartments near Trader Joes?
the court st NYSC has really gone downhill. there were at least 3 locker doors broken off in the men’s lockerroom, and it was a sloppy mess. it looked very rundown. too bad.
I agree, the Court St. NYSC has gone far downhill. I’ve been a member since it opened (and a member of the Cobble Hill NYSC for 12 years before that).
I recently cancelled the membership and joined Eastern Athletic. It’s about $30 more per month, but the cleanliness level is high and the equipment is much better maintained.
Where were you when you took this photo, Josh?
I need to find a caricature artist…doesn’t even have to be any good. Anyone know where I can find one around BH or in Manhattan?
http://www.danspringer.net is a great caricature artist…he’s in williamsburg
A well-deserved memorial to a beloved member of a neighborhood institution:
Anna Montemarano, Matriarch Of Cranberry’s, Dies at 93
I brought my camera with me to the office that day and took this picture from a nearby window while I waited for some stuff to print out.
(I work at a certain large, beige office building at the north end of Columbia Heights…)
Charlie, I thought a Apple store was coming to that location. Maybe I’m wrong.
I have no idea what you’re talking about. I used to go to Eastern Athletic and now go to NYSC and am much happier there. Save a lot of $ too.
Does anyone know anything about the car windows have been smashed in along columbia heights (especially near the dog park)? I have noticed that this is happening mostly on weekend nights and have stopped parking there, but have not heard anything about it.
Brownstoner is reporting that the owner of the Toren rising at the corner of Flatbuh & Myrtle is wooing Apple (but notes Apple isn’t returning the calls).
Seems this location is a little more upmarket, but the Toren can provide the architecture and interior ambiance Apple would prefer (if not the neighborhood…yet).
Josh, if I worked in the Watchtower Building and had a view like that, I’d think about making a set of seasonal pictorials. That must be an amazing view on a snowy day, and the sunsets must cast an incredible light. Keep up the great work.
