    There are two apartments that I know of on Love Lane that are being gut renovated. One will be done in December, not sure about the other one. Also, there is work being done on the roof of 61 Pierrepont, the back of which faces LL. I’m sure those three projects contribute to the plethora of construction guys and trucks on the street.

    “what made me run for the door and never return was how rude he was to the next customer who asked about a reservation”

    What did they say? Please do tell.

    Breaker, Breaker…er, I wonder what made me suddenly say that? Well, anyway…

    One Pierrepont Street has installed two BIG high def cameras covering the front and side of the building and by proxy the goings on at the Pierrepont entrance to the promenade and children’s park. According to sources who claim knowledge of the situation, in comfortability with several situations at the Pierrepont entrance was a major factor in the installation of the high power units.

    Hey, given the hour and a half non response by 911 to the car on the promenade incident and many other “events”, its no wonder people feel the need for surveillance systems.

    Yes, the first stop is the Brooklyn Historical Soc. photo file.

    see if you can use a handheld scanner of high enough def. Which can properly capture images. Mention you are a friend of WSW. That will smooth things…if you can use a scanner, there are several good photo restoration/sharpening programs you can use once you have the images entered in your system.

    I think the BPL, (if it hasn’t shut down) had a photo collection at Grand Army Plaza.

    But have you simply searched old Brooklyn images. There’s a lot now on you tube.

    It’s not about whining–rather it’s the heavy doses of far-rightie politics/authoritarianism complete with unembarrassed racism-classism.

    There’s also a sense of a loose screw or two, seemingly age-related, but this is tolerable if not amusing.

    You have to take the entirety of WSW’s comments into consideration, Then you’ll understand…

    Are you a carpenter? Because I’d say you hit the nail square on the head!

  • StudioBrooklyn

    Hard at work beautifying our neighborhood. Clinton and Joralemon. Sunday.

  • Willow Street Watch

    No, it’s just that a lot of what I present is on a higher frequency than you or starchie are capable of tuning to.

    Its like a “smart” car vs. a pro stock. Good luck!

    This community is a very advanced system which neither of you are remotely qualified to operate. And starchie, loads of casino/st grotelsex guile is NOT the same as intelligence and it’s NEVER balanced judgment….

    First photo is, I think, 78 Henry Street, now Fascati Pizza. Not sure where most of the others are, except there’s a shot of the south end of the Promenade, in front of the building at the corner of Remsen and Montague Terrace. (Been out of town the last week, so…)

  • StudioBrooklyn

    That’s the building featured in Michael Winner’s 1977 horror film “The Sentinel”.
