    The Heights is not what it used to be. It is very sad to see what the neighborhood has transformed into over the past year or two.

  • Heightsguy77

    Not a “random” attack. This is from the Daily Eagle.

    Workers in Hans Market told this reporter they thought that the suspect had argued with the victim, blaming him for “getting him fired” from the construction site at the Watermark. This information has not been confirmed at this time, however. him for “getting him fired” from the construction site at the Watermark. This information has not been confirmed at this time, however.

    Do you remember when random people were murdered on Grace Court? Look up Deborah Phemister. Remember when people would mug priests on Cadman Plaza?

    Ask a locksmith who worked in this neighborhood in the 70s and they’ll tell you how good business was because everyday someone would come in to get their locks replaced because a burglar took a crowbar to their garden-level door.

    Were you here when every street had a welfare hotel where kids would run around with no parents?

    You had to worry men would follow you home from the subway and rape you in your apartment vestibule:

    Tell me about how it used to be. Twenty years ago there were twice as many robberies in the Eight-Four. Tell me about how it used to be. Five years ago there were the same amount as today. I remember how it used to be. It was terrifying.

    Good Lord, how did you manage to survive in this apocalypse!?

  • CassieVonMontague

    I’m sorry. I’m just tired of the fear mongers.

  • Arch Stanton

    Don’t worry folks, the cops will catch the assailant, he’ll go to court and the judge will give him Mets tickets. An appropriate punishment I’d say.

    Why, is he a politician or rich or something?

  • Knight

    No. This is actually what happens since the bail reform law went into effect on January 1st. “The accused” are released until their trial and given Mets tickets, MetroCards, or other gift cards if they show up for their court appearance. You can’t make this stuff up!

  • StudioBrooklyn

    Well that’s just if they show up for court.

    Don’t worry, if they’re poor and can’t afford good counsel they’ll still be convicted and thrown into some facility or other, so their families will be broken up and continue the cycle of poverty, if they ever get out they’ll enjoy a high recidivism rate because that’s what prison trains people to do, the prison-industrial complex gets its kickbacks from the politicians who keep drugs illegal, Cuomo looks like a progressive, and everyone goes home happy.

    You just jealous because you want Mets tickets?

  • TeddyNYC

    Personally, I wish Mets tickets were something to be jealous about.

  • Diane W

    Folks. The Bail Reform law does not apply to violent crimes. Go read the law for yourself and stop spreading false information.

  • aconcernedneighbor

    So has anyone actually seen Matt Damon around the neighborhood?

  • Arch Stanton

    Don’t get your panties in an uproar. We’re only spreading humor not false information.

  • Arch Stanton

    “Well that’s just if they show up for court” So do you think that’s a good policy?

  • Andrew Porter

    The headline is misleading. I looked up the word “bodega”: it is defined as “a small grocery store, especially in a Spanish-speaking neighborhood.”

    Yes, that describes Brooklyn Heights.

  • StudioBrooklyn

    I will preface my response to this by saying that my opinions (or yours, or any other civilian’s) on this policy is quite immaterial unless such policies are put on a ballot. We can debate the merits of policy here but I doubt that if we differ beyond a certain point either of us will be able to convince the other to change their position, if that is even the goal.

    That said, as you have probably surmised by now I am a supporter of restorative justice, not only because it is deeply and unequivocally humane but also because it is supported by science. If research demonstrates desirable results from incentivizing people released from jail to show up in court, then that’s what we should be doing, even if it rubs old school “let ’em hang” types the wrong way. Our society needs a free and productive, upwardly-mobile population more than it needs to satisfy conservatives’ indignation.

    Nobody seems to bat an eye when someone like Harvey Weinstein or Bernie Madoff spend the intervening time between their initial booking and their trial at home. I’m pointing this out not to advocate that everyone should spend that time in jail, but rather the contrary: that these wealthy men are getting humane and just treatment because they can afford it, and that such treatment should be available to everyone regardless of whether they have oodles of cash.

    If some guy gets caught selling an ounce of weed and after he’s arrested a judge promises him a Metrocard if he shows up to his court date, I don’t see how you or I suddenly become become victims in this situation. It is absolutely zero skin off our backs.

  • South Brooklyn Boys

    You are such a sad bastard

  • SongBirdNYC

    What about the Han market in the 2/3 station isn’t a “small grocery store”? Yes bodega is Spanish in origin but bodega is now a New York thing. EVERYone calls corner stores like Han’s a bodega. It’s like “kleenex” or “xerox” when you mean tissue or photo copy. Brooklyn Heights’ air is not so rarified that we can’t say “bodega” The headline stays as is.

  • Edo Express

    Ask someone from east Harlem if Han’s market is a bodega and they would laugh in your face.

  • SongBirdNYC

    Yes, I get that. My Grandmother lived on the LES until the early 90’s as the neighborhood was changing from mostly old school Jewish immigrants to Chinese and Latina. There was and still is a fully legit bodega on the corner of Madison & Cherry. I know what they are. BUT, I was reacting to Andrew Porter’s pearl clutching which I perceived to have a whiff of something that let’s just say stinks. I object to the idea that Brooklyn Heights couldn’t POSSIBLY have a bodega. Also, I posted this article and used the headline from multiple news sources.

  • Arch Stanton

    LOL, actually I’m pretty jovial and my parents were indeed married.

  • Jean

    Now you’re overexplaining.

  • StudioBrooklyn

    By the way if you need any further validation of my position, it was downvoted by “Sen. Bob Forehead”, who can be seen elsewhere on the internet fanboying over Proud Boys and giving such enlightened suggestions as abolishing MLK day on racist punditry blogs like The Gateway Pundit. Posting screen grabs before he scurries back into his hole.

  • StudioBrooklyn

    Also, no true Scotsman would patronize a “delicatessen” unless only Yiddish was spoken within a four-block radius.

  • aconcernedneighbor

    omg.. I meant this for Open Thread… sorry.

  • Claude Scales

    Do you remember the New York Lottery’s “Bodega Cat” commercial? The bodega in question was the Penny Bridge Store, at Clark and Henry:

  • Arch Stanton

    But Toto, We’re not in East Harlem anymore…

  • Andrew Porter

    Just because they filmed it there, doesn’t mean it’s a bodega. Penny Bridge doesn’t sell the things that normal groceries, or delis, or bodegas do. The commercial filmed there because a location scout found it and it met the requirements for the shoot.
