A year ago, I had just arrived home from my day job when the phone rang. It was Heather Quinlan, fellow BHB staffer. “Did you hear about John?” I knew it wasn’t some ghastly April Fools’ gag. My first thought was of Tracy, his wife, and of Gracie, his daughter whom I had last seen […]

Here, in no particular order, are the people you, the readers, and we nominated for the Brooklyn Heights Ten for the past year, 2015. Tracy (“Mrs. Fink”) Zamot and daughter Gracie: The sudden and unexpected loss of BHB’s founder, publisher, contributor, and guiding light John “Homer Fink” Loscalzo last April left all of us on […]
Perps in a candy store steal no candy; a terrifying incident at Domino’s; and a nervous bank robber ask for little money and gets even less. It’s last week’s blotter.
An “old lady’s bike” (her words, not mine) was stolen from a bike rack at Court and Montague some time between 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 20. Aside from being geriatric, it was also purple.
Hello, lovebirds! Hope all you crazy kids had a great Valentine’s Day. And what can keep you more in the mood than another installment of the Brooklyn Heights Blog police blotter?

When he was done shooting hoops […]

I don’t have a particular agenda, just wherever the mood takes me. Perhaps you […]
For those of you hunkered down under the inches of snow, it’s a special weekend edition of the blotter. Last Monday there were two reports of women being robbed in elevators. The first occurred at 8 a.m. on Bridge Street, where a thug stole $20, the second at 8:30 a.m. on Sands Street, where a […]
Welcome to the first police blotter of 2015! Also the first blotter in quite awhile, my time had been taken up by one of those pesky full-time jobs you hear about – now that I’ve been laid off, I’m free to write about all the malfeasance in the neighborhood. (So if you know of any […]
As previously reported, our Heather Quinlan has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund her latest project – a documentary on the 1986 World Champion New York Mets. And we’re kvelling over the amount of press (and love!) she’s getting. Check it out:
