    Does anyone know where I can watch the VP debate Thursday night in the neighborhood? Any bars broadcasting it?

    PBL – See the new post about the burglary attempt at 75 Henry St. Friday morning; could that have been it?

  • Scrambler

    Has anyone else but me noticed all the white bags with dog poop in them all over the street at Pierpont and Pierpont Place? The bags are there every week. Now that all the cars are moved this morning there must be at least 10. Does the person know there is a trash can 20 feet away?

  • GHB

    Scrambler, there’s a blind woman who walks her seeing eye dog in that area. Wouldn’t be surprised if she left them in hopes that someone would dispose of them for her.

  • Hicks St Guy

    @GHB, hard to believe.

    Gerry, if your written words had been spoken, my ears would be bleeding right about now…

  • Mr. Crusty

    Does a recording star have an obligation to “do something” for the city she was born in other than make us proud? If we want to start naming Brooklyn celebrities that left our fair town for warmer climes we would have a long list indeed.

    Gerry are you perpetually so constipated? Ruffage. I suggest ruffage, lots and lots of ruffage.

  • David on Middagh

    You can find ruffage at an adoption event.

  • HenryLoL

    Got calzones delivered last night from table 87. Just ok – and they forgot the side of sauce we asked for. Note – if u noticed the construction on Henry and orange where diva salon was…. Building has new owner and he is opening his own Italian restaurant on the ground floor. Hmmm.
