Happy Sixth Birthday Brooklyn Heights Blog

It was six years ago today, at 4:13 p.m., that we started Brooklyn Heights Blog with this post.

In those six years we’ve made some great neighborhood friends, learned and wrote about the fascinating history of the area and covered some really interesting characters.

Thanks for encouraging our behavior.

    It’s hard to believe there was a time that we had no BHB.
    Thank you, Homer and all the folks who make the Blog so terrific.

    In the spirit of Brooklyn Heights Blog complaining, why didn’t you start the blog seven years ago? Happy Birthday!

    Thanks for picking up and re-posting my sunset photo back in ’06, which led to a long, fruitful, and–for me at least–extremely pleasurable association. I hope it can go on a lot longer.

    Seems like just a minute–time flies when you’re having fun!

    Thanks to Homer, Claude, Karl, Chuck, erstwhile reporter Heather, and all others who make or have made the BHB possible. A community builder and daily addiction.

    Love this blog — really keeps its finger on the pulse of what happens in our beautiful neighborhood. Sure, we may all not agree on everything, but I think we are in agreement that this site is a valuable resource (and many times a fun community). Happy Birthday! Thanks Homer, Claude and the many contributors to this successful endeavor.

    Happy Birthday BHB! You don’t look a day over 5. And I just heard there may be job cuts in my department, so there could be hope for the blotter yet!

    Happy anniversary, Homer! I’ve now lived in this neighborhood for 12 years and count my blessings that I am part of a real COMMUNITY… not something I felt in previous NYC apartments on the UWS, Chelsea or Tribeca. This blog is an integral part of that spirit.

    It’s equally a joy to be among the comrades reporting on Brooklyn Heights for this blog… My camera & I thank you, Homer!
