    The flowers should be a reminder to visitors of Brooklyn Bridge Park to pick up after themselves when they leave. I was running through the park this morning and it was a real pigpen: a half-eaten pizza sitting in its box on pier one, beer cans strewn about the lawn, paper cups and napkins all around the picnic area near pier 5, more beer bottles. I don’t know what’s wrong with people but this is a nice new park and it ought to be treated with more respect.

  • HenryLOL

    Went to Sociale on Henry and Organge for dinner. Best meal we’ve had in the Heights in years. Now THAT is how you run a restaurant.

    The same disgusting behavior goes on at the Promenade every evening.

  • Penny Bridge

    How can we keep our neighborhood from becoming a tourist path. It’s great having them but some thought she go into pathways to BBP etc. Hopefully the changes on Old Fulton will help things.

  • Rick

    Somebody should tear down that dump and put up a hospital. Nobody wants a restaurant in their neighborhood. Besides, there are lots of the best restaurants in the world just a short drive away in Manhattan.

  • HenryLOL

    You are really funny. Hilarious, actually. Do you even live here or are you just a shill that dump? It is laughable that you cant see how silly and self-rightous you are. LOL. You probably also think the govenment should pay for healthcare! HA!

    I was taking a sunset walk with my husband on Monday evening when I slipped on a pile of dog sh*t, partially covered by a leaf, on Middagh between Henry and Hicks (close to Hicks). I am 7 1/2 months pregnant and thankfully I fell on my butt and not on my front, but needless to say it was a disgusting experience (I got some on my hand too) that ruined an otherwise nice evening. Not to mention that an elderly person or someone in poorer health could have seriously hurt themselves. I’m appalled at the behavior of some of the dog owners in our neighborhood. Please, if you see a dog owner being inconsiderate and not cleaning up after their pet, call them out on it, because not only is it disgusting, it’s unsafe.

    Has anyone noticed how much the sidewalk juts out on CPW and Middagh on the park/exit ramp side? Anyone standing on the edge is actually standing in the middle of the 2nd lane. Someone is going to get seriously hurt. I tried calling 311 but they couldn’t put in the location bc there was no address. Any suggestions?

  • HenryLOL

    They did that on purpose — and in a bunch of places in The Heights. Somehow it is supposed to slow traffic and HELP pedestrians….

  • Remsen Street Dweller

    Very good, Rick! LOL.

  • HenryLOL

    Oy — yet another shill who only comments about that dump that needs to be closed ASAP.

  • Still Here

    If the Old Fulton ‘grand entrance to the park’ under the BQE underpass gets any filthier, more and more folks will descend through the Heights. Just gross and no one will clean it up (outside the DUMBO BID and Park).

  • MonroeOrange

    Yes…when they first put those extended sidewalks in place, i complained that not each location is ideal, for instance, Joraleman and Hicks street makes drives swerve to avoid it. Supposedly its to help people cross the street quickly..but yes, its a matter of time before an accident occurs…other bad locations, are Cranberry and Henry too.

  • MonroeOrange

    haha…and that’s exactly what i meant when i said, ‘HenryLol, if you go to Social, you will eliminate half his business’…no one wants to sit next to you!

  • Remsen Street Dweller

    Why would commenting on and wanting to save a hospital that I’ve used many times since I’ve lived in the Heights and depend on make me a shill?

  • GHB

    Glad you’re OK! I have a dog, and this pisses me off too. I tell others regularly to pick up after their dogs. I love when they tell me, “Oh, I didn’t see that!” Oy…

  • HenryLOL

    It is ALL you comment about. You either work there, have friends or family that work there, work for a politico, have a personal vendetta against SUNY, are part of a union, OR SOMETHING. You are NOT just a random concerned resident.

  • HenryLOL

    Very smart. You’re brilliant. Poor thing…

  • Remsen Street Dweller

    Don’t know what you mean by “random” but I am just a very concerned citizen. And, no, I am not in a union.

  • MonroeOrange

    yes…im so brilliant that i think that we should have a hospital that is closer than park slope…can you believe, some people aren’t brilliant enough to see that for themselves….hmmm?…and yes i mean you

  • MonroeOrange

    and ALL you comment on is how they should tear it down…are you a shill for a real estate firm? hmmmmmm

  • Rick

    “Do you even live here?”, you asked:
    Yes, I moved to Brooklyn Heights in 1985 and presently live in a co-op in the central Heights. During all that time LICH has given very good care to myself and those that I love. I know you find it an unattractive set of buildings, but I think it is beautiful in the help it provides to so many people.
    Oh, and to finish your questionnaire, I’m not with any union, I’m not affiliated with LICH in any way, nor are my friends or family, nor am I a politico and don’t work for one. Nor did I have anything against SUNY until they started acting like Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. But now I consider them immoral for their recent actions.

  • Sonny

    Hello. I’m looking for Sunday brunch / lunch locations in Brooklyn Heights / DUMBO for a group of executives from my company. It’s not necessarily a business lunch, but it will be senior level colleagues together.I called Jack the Horse but they don’t take reservations for brunch and I imagine that’s the case for many other places. I don’t even think Noodle Pudding is open for brunch.

    Can anyone recommend a good place that’s appropriate for a large group of corporate executives where I can actually secure a table on a Sunday? Any insight is appreciated.

  • HenryLOL

    You have a hospital right on the other side of the bridge.

  • HenryLOL

    There is more to it than that — and you know it. Just save it for a rally.

  • HenryLOL

    Bevacco on Henry is a big space and is fine for brunch. Run the other direction if it is dinner you are looking for. Also in DUMBO is a great new place called Atrium, but not sure if they do brunch yet. For sure you could get into Superfine and Rebar is also nice, but often closed for weddings…

  • Remsen Street Dweller

    Why should there be more to it, LOL? Some people do care about the health of themselves and their loved ones.

    And, they care that a fine Brooklyn institution be allowed to survive and keep serving its communities.

    Why, why is that so difficult for you to understand?

  • Remsen Street Dweller

    Look at these beautiful people. Gotta love ’em — I do!

  • Rick

    You said:
    “There is more to it than that — and you know it.”

    What an odd and rather paranoid thing to say about me.

  • HenryLOL

    Oh yeah, there’s my next door neighbor Jim oh wait none of these people live here and are all in the union…
