‘Time Out’ Queries BHB’s Esteemed Founder Homer Fink: His Fave Heights Hotspots

Brooklyn Heights Blog’s esteemed founder, proprietor and Master of Ceremonies Homer Fink (a.k.a. John Loscalzo) is queried in this week’s Time Out New York regarding his take on Brooklyn’s best. He begins, “What I love about Brooklyn Heights is being this close to NYC, but being totally transported somewhere else.”

Mr. Fink’s shout-outs… Jack the Horse Tavern: “Chef-owner-local Tim Oltmans has done a great job with not only the food and vibe, but the staff, who bend over backwards to get to know their patrons. Don’t even get me started on their cheeseburger.”
Brooklyn Heights Promenade: “Awesome is an overused word that’s practically lost its meaning, but it would be correct to use it to describe the view. It’s kind of a ‘pinch-me-I-live here’ moment every time you walk the Promenade. It’s a great place to people-watch, too.”
Brooklyn Bridge Park: “The water park is world class. And for the folks? Bark Hot Dogs and, well, beer. The pop-up pool at Pier 2 was my little girl’s favorite spot to see & be seen this summer by the in-the-know toddler set.”
Brooklyn Historical Society: “Always a great visit. One past exhibit had profound influence. It featured Otis Pearsall’s handmade map of historic homes in the neighborhood. That map served as a key piece in the successful effort to landmark the area in 1965.”

And he concludes: “I could go on and on; and as a matter of fact, I do, during my Homer Fink’s Hidden Brooklyn Heights Walking Tour. The next one is October 6. Come on out! No beer, sorry, but you can always stop off and see our favorite neighborhood bartender, Lee, at Henry Street Ale House afterward. It’s bound to be one of your favorite things about Brooklyn Heights.”
