    Have you looked across the street at Cadman???? If it is zoned, it is zoned. The correct focus would be to get it down zoned. Good luck with that.

  • DIBS

    Not to mention the courses in English.

    See Willow Street’s post a few posts above and my reply!!!

  • Eddyde

    Well your assumption is incorrect. I am not affiliated with any political party.
    Besides, I don’t see what my political views have to do with my statement.

  • outasight

    It’s “make” sure. I guess that’s just a Republican meme, to ridicule others while they themselves are screwing up. No one is missing you here.

  • StudioBrooklyn

    Were you referring to “binality”, which I can only guess describes a state of being half-stupid, or maybe stupid twice within a single idea?

  • T.K. Small

    Any suggestions for a Brooklyn Heights dermatologist? The location needs to be wheelchair accessible, so basement offices in a brownstone are out. Thanks in advance!

  • Willow Street Watch

    I agree, the posts which focus on exactitudes of form over really critical at this point, substance are both binal and dangerously irresponsible. Think a moment. We have several very serious situations afflicting the national historic place we live and honest concerned residents are now sharing the stage with, well, foodies(!) and grammarians!!!. Look at how distracting from critical, serious issues the last few “contributions” are. Notice they don’t want to deal with an issue or provide a serious counterpoint. No, all they want to is to attack and most of all distract.

    They are named after Brother Russell, the Russian monk who genetically engineered them from cabbages. The name morphed over time somewhat like willow; originally “wit low” meaning a man who cannot spell.

  • StudioBrooklyn

    Ah yes. Good Old Brother Russell. Friends called him Russ.

  • Arch Stanton

    Russ the Bruss

    Exactly! Development CAN be reasonable and responsible.

    But BEFORE you do ANY development, you HAVE to put in place the resources and activated services to provide for an increased population. That ALWAYS needs to be done FIRST!!!.

    Go to a few 84th Police Precinct community council meeting and you’ll hear someone say the “J” rule….e.g.. If you increase the population…you (first) want more cops fire and ems…first

    Well that is a small part of a basic sane larger concept that before you have any increase in people you want the facilities to provide for the safety and proper servicing of the new population. Period.

    it does seem as thought Bloomberg snookered us all those years ago– when we thought a park would come first and the neighborhoods acquiesced to the funding model. Should have realized it would be a waterfront development project with park attached, when jurisdiction was given to the Economic Development Corporation.

  • DIBS

    Thanks for the obsessive compulsive spellchecking. Last time I looked, you had a Democrat in charge of the city.

  • Anon

    Does anyone know where Satnicks (the jeweler that was originally off Court Street) has moved to? Thanks much!

  • heights res

    What nonsense!! Public land should not be given up for private profit

  • heights res

    Many of us did realize exactly that

  • ldny

    I’ve been going to Dr. Marc Avram on Remsen for years. There are 2 steps if I recall correctly? But they may have a ramp. I’m sure I remember seeing a wheelchair in the waiting room before. Give them a call and ask!

  • ldny

    They haven’t reopened anywhere. But the phone number (718) 852-1421 still works and the outgoing message says that although they are closed, if you leave a message, they’ll still try to help you. There was an article a few months ago somewhere that said he was looking for small office space somewhere to re-open in some capacity.

    There’s a drought in the agricultural lands of California, you must realize…
