Say Goodbye to Smorgasburg

Smorgasburg will be leaving its digs on the uplands of Pier 5, Brooklyn Bridge Park, near the foot of Joralemon Street, where it has been each Sunday spring through fall for the past several years, to a new location on Breeze Hill in Prospect Park starting Sunday, August 30, according to Ditmas Park Patch. The move is made necessary by Brooklyn Bridge Park’s imminent conversion of the space to parkland.

Your last chances to enjoy Smorgasburg’s offerings without taking a subway ride or a long walk are today from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and next Sunday, August 23, during the same hours.

    I saw a Henry St. squirrel vandalizing the bottom of a black trash bag for the edibles inside. This was on the sidewalk, in broad daylight! Moral: You can’t blame the rats for everything.

    Sure, there are exceptions to normality, but the vast majority of BH residents I and my family know are at least very dismayed if not, as is more normal outright hostile. Sure theses a kind of cultural underclass who are so low minded that they think Regina’s park is wonderful, worthwhile and a grand edition to the Heights. These kind of people appear in numbers whenever a nation or civilization goes into a downward spiral.

    What if you had to LOVE along any of the approaches to the park and soon the new housing. What if god forbid you need EMS in a real emergency and a ems unit is busy dealing with the throngs?

    Would YOU be so sanguine then.

    That’s a great description of the average foodie. That’s exactly how they are. Food monomaniacal. Just take a look at the psychopathologies running out of there houses,down the hill to run from food stand to food stand feeling they’re “experiencing” life and this makes them a better “cultured” person. What wonderful people to be influencing or attempting to direct one of America’s most important historic treasures….

    This is like saying that Americans should not be clear eyed and hostile
    when some kind of harmful invader comes into our waters. Oh I see, its perfect normality in your world to WELCOME something which LOWERS our level of safety? Oh I see, its now unfashionable or not PC to think of the safety or wellbeing of my family? Yeah right….

    The Heights, the whole place, is a National Historic Treasure…I suggest at least the some of you who are capible , show some concern and respect…..

    I’m not completely sure what you mean by this babble but you are an unpleasant person who I will in the future try to ignore. Although I tend to agree with you about the library, your misogynistic rants are tedious and I seriously think you need some sort of help. (and I’m not just referring to spelling or vocabulary use.) Ta ta for now.

    Wow you’re really projecting on this one. You must be a very unhappy person

    Smorgasburg is GREAT. Everyone loves it. The problem is limited access points to activities in BBP, unlike Prospect Park, Central Park. IDIOTS are in charge of Brooklyn Bridge Park. Idiots and developers. And a Mayor whose approval rating drops daily. WAKE UP. SMELL THE COFFEE. People WANT PARK. Not a development site. NO shade. Where or where is the green space?

  • Willow Street Watch

    Exactly, in a reasonable setting no one would oppose an outdoor food court. But given everything involved, this is simply not a reasonable setting. And what you say about the design and management of the park is maddeningly true. The ONLY real solution at this point is some kind of judicial intervention AND some level of law enforcement review of what is going on here. And that means Federal level…..

    Otherwise those in control can simply continue to thumb their noses at everyone….

    Incidents of lives lost due to ems systems being understaffed and over stretched have occurred nation wide. The record of this is well documented. And personal attacks are not contributive.

  • Willow Street Watch

    Well that’s entirely true. Whenever a society is endangered or declines to a dangerious point, there are a special type of person who step up while the vast majority remain neutral or are a part of the attack. Some call them hero’s, some inspired, I think that they are simply being faithful to our highest ideals. But, yes, I certainly try to the kind of person who emerges to help in our time of need.

    Its really amazing, I didn’t think you were that perceptive….

  • Willow Street Watch

    I shouldn’t answer that but…wow more amatuer psychiatry?
    I thought you were going to ignored me….

    And, after the first one in Prospect Park, guess what happened:
