We still don’t know exactly what’s wrong with Squibb Park Bridge, the fancy, new, bouncy pedestrian footbridge that’s been closed for the past seven months pending a $700,000 repair job, but we do know this much: the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation (BBP) is working on it.

Excited to check out the new Juice Press coming to the neighborhood? You won’t have to wait much longer. The newest outpost in New York City’s burgeoning, cold-pressed, fruity beverage empire — located at 124 Montague St. behind Kiehl’s — will celebrate its grand-opening tomorrow (3/7) with a limited private event, according to an invitation […]

The hours of the new Eamonn’s run from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. weeknights, with kitchen open till 1 […]
The shake-up of the Montague Street restaurant scene continues. Taperia, the Spanish tapas restaurant and bar located at 132 Montague Street that opened in October 2013 to much fanfare appears to have closed indefinitely.
