Here on the 318th day of 2012, there are but 47 days remaining until the end of the year. That means BHB will offer only six more Open Thread Wednesdays before the turning of the calendar. You better hurry, huh? What’s on your mind? Comment away! (Photo: CT/red velvet cake at Lassen & Hennigs)

    I went to Dr. Moshman a few years ago for an emergency tooth cap replacement. He was great. No problems since. I have a family dentist in Westchester that I usually go to. He is my cousin, and gives a family discount, and presents to the kids.

    Does anyone else remember Dr. Salvator Altchek? He passed-away around a dozen years ago. His office was on Joralemon Street between Clinton and Henry. He was like a Saint.

    About 20-years ago, when I didn’t have any health insurance and a very bad respiratory infection, he only charged me only $5 for an office visit and he wrote me a prescription for an ancient antibiotic that only cost $9 retail. It worked.

    A few weeks later, my girlfriend went to see him for a breast exam. She got a glowing report, and he even waved the $5 fee!

    My family and I have gone to the Moshman dental office for years. Dr. Stanley Moshman is very conscientious and a great dentist! He always is willing to go the extra mile to really make sure that I understand what my dental procedures entail.

    An added bonus is that he is a photographer and we have had many interesting conversations about his subject matter.

    His staff is friendly, efficient, and always greets their patients with a smile. I highly recommend this office!

    @ Wiley E., I also went to Dr. Altcheck many moons ago. Indeed he was a Saint. I’ll never forget the office in his brownstone too, a throwback from another era.

    As far as dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Philip Klein, DDS at at 86 Pierrepont Street. I don’t think there’s a better dentist in the world!

    MonroeOrange: order a whole pie when you only want a slice or two is your answer? Sorry, I’m not a fat man by any means, nor am I that economically deranged.

  • MonroeOrange

    @knight, actually my answer was, deal with it! They are not clowns as you said, and I will always defend a great nabe institution when someone calls them a name I don’t agree with. Stop going there instead of name calling, is that a better answer?

  • Wiley E.

    M-O, try the medium pie. You need it.

    Ask for the “Marshall McLuhan”.

    Plymouth Church is “a great nabe institution.” Fascati’s is just a business that one man built and his sons are now ruining.

    Actually Knight…it was two men who built it…they were brothers, one passed and one retired….welcome to the neighborhood Knight…..
