Happy 8th Birthday BHB

Eight years ago today at 4:13pm, we thought it would be a good idea to start a blog about Brooklyn Heights.

In that time we’ve made many new friends, learned an enormous amount about the history of the area (so much we started a walking tour) and so much more.

Thanks for your support!

    Many congrats to Homer and all! A day without the BHB would be a day without…well, it wouldn’t be a day at all.

    I’ve only been a BK Heights resident for 2 years, but already feel a better steward of the neighborhood because of the awareness BHB brings to activities, the currents events & issues that impact us, and openings / closings of local businesses.

    Kudos & Thanks.

    Off topic…anyone know what the helicopter search was for last night? It went on for over an hour…so loud…floodlight, helicopter within a few feet of my window circling the neighborhood and lower nyc. If anyone knows anything please share!

    I second the comment on this blog making me a more informed neighbor. I can speak with neighbors and visitors alike about our neighborhood better than I could without the blog!

    I love the blog, I live full time in Ft Lauderdale but have a place in Brooklyn Heights. I really enjoy reading this blog often to know what is going on in the neighborhood and I have to say I enjoy all of Karl’s video. It is almost as good as being up there, well that is a small lie I wish always I was up there

    Many happy returns, Homer! Does your daughter treat the BHB like an older brother? And I hope it’s making money for you!

  • Ann B Chapin

    Thanks so much for keeping us informed! I enjoy the lively “discussions” you generate ;-) Karl, thank you for being “the man on the street” and adding that personal touch. Many more successful years to you all–I would certainly miss you!

    Thanks, Joe. I’ll confess, every time I see a comment by you, I wonder for a nanosecond, “Isn’t that the Mets’ first baseman?” (Lucas Duda.)

    You guys rock!

    Trust me when I say that Lucas Duda gets the loudest cheers from this family at home games :)
