A walk along the waterfront yesterday (while practicing social distancing) was eerie to say the least. New Yorkers love to complain about tourists, don’t we? We may want fewer blocking our path while they’re gazing up at, what, the sky? We may wish they would walk faster, come on, we have some place to go! […]

You may recall earlier this week, Claude reminded us that today is Small Business Saturday and the Montague BID would be hosting a “selfies with elves” event at none other than the lobby of the storied Hotel Bossert. We won’t get into the 7+ years long, at times heart-warming, always intriguing, and unendingly mysterious saga of the Bossert. It’s […]

This weekend afforded perfect weather for brisk walks through the Heights and Brooklyn Bridge Park, and I was able to get some photos of fall blooms and foliage, as well as other scenes. Asters were in bloom in the Brooklyn Heights Promenade gardens near the Remsen Street entrance. Seen from the newly opened outer portion […]
There was plenty of action in and around Brooklyn Heights for Halloween yesterday. Things got going early with a parade and a party in the Pierrepont Playground. A family at Hicks and Montague streets, early afternoon. A “graveyard” on Garden Place. Giving out the goodies, Garden Place.

CVS has announced their soon to be presence at Clinton and Montague, former home of Rite Aid. […]

At dusk, a great flotilla of boats small and large, sail and motor, filled the harbor from below Brooklyn Heights to the channel between lower Manhattan and Governors Island. Police and Coast Guard vessels, lights flashing, darted here and there, making sure all was secure and ready. Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Picnic Peninsula was jammed with […]
The cherry blossoms and forsythia are mostly gone, but tulips, lilacs, bleeding hearts, and wisteria are at their best now. I made a photographic record as I walked along the Brooklyn Heights Promenade from north to south this morning. This photo shows bright red tulips and other blossoms at the Pineapple Street entrance. This display […]
At about 1:00 p.m. yesterday your correspondent noticed a very tall crane standing in the middle of Remsen Street just west of Henry, which necessitated blocking all traffic from Remsen between Hicks and Henry. Approaching the site, I saw a tree, its roots encased in a basket, lying on a flatbed trailer. The crane was […]
