Amazon Prime One Hour Delivery Now Available in Brooklyn Heights

The days of having to wait 24 hours or more for those news socks, space heater, book or gadget from Amazon are officially over in Brooklyn Heights. Amazon announced this week that it’s Prime Now One Hour delivery service, which had previously been limited to Manhattan, has been expanded to include Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Park Slope, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill and Prospect Heights.

    But this seems to be a “grocery” service–that is, the products offered are those you’d pick up at a supermarket and/or large Duane Reade-type operation.

    Nothing wrong with that, I guess, but the point–for me, at least–would be to get books and other not-readily-available items quickly.

    And it doesn’t seem that one can download the necessary app to one’s laptop. Also, the app itself is, according to customer reviews, iffy.

    Bitch, bitch, bitch!

    And no drones. Bummer!

    It seems like a lot of money to spend to not go outside (even with recent temperatures). I’m also concerned about the effect this (and Amazon in general) has on local businesses.

    We don’t need more delivery trucks in the neighborhood.

    Amazon is out to drive every single business except themselves out of business. And when they’re the only game in town…. I never ever buy anything from them. If I want books, I go to BookCourt; if I want food, I go to Key, Trader Joe’s, or local businesses. The exercise is good for you!
