Still, the official lighting will take place on this Wednesday evening, December 12 at 5:30. Carolers from the Grace Chorale of Brooklyn will be there to add a festive […]

Your correspondent was deeply saddened, on arriving for his and his wife’s (this time joined by some neighbors) usual Friday night dinner at the Chip Shop, to find at the top of the extensive beers, ales, and ciders menu a note that the place would close at the end of this weekend, having lost its […]
Several days ago, your correspondent spotted this huge tractor-trailer rig trying unsuccessfully to turn from Montague to Hicks Street. Its way was blocked by a smaller bread delivery truck parked on the west (left) side of Hicks, close to the intersection. I didn’t stay around to see how this finally was resolved (I had to […]

In early July the Eagle reported, in a story we linked to here, that one of the hotel’s owners, either David Bistricer or Joseph Chetrit, had said that “a major announcement” about the hotel would be made soon. It was presumed that this would be of a firm opening date for the hotel, which has […]
It was just a matter of time. A few days ago, we shared Brooklyn Paper‘s news about the possibility of an access bridge from Montague St. to Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Your correspondent walked by this afternoon, and the place was doing business. What can I say, other than I’m delighted? My regrets to the owners, though their earlier apparent closing wasn’t accompanied by the usual “we’re doing renovations; be back soon” sort of sign. Now Montague Street has one less vacant restaurant space.
The Eagle reports that Ristorante Armando’s, a fixture, with one brief interruption, on Montague Street since 1936, has closed for good. Along with the loss of what, for many in the Heights was a favorite eating place and hangout, will come the loss of the iconic (What other word can I use to describe it?) […]
Update: Chipotle has now said they will get secure metal containers for their trash, the Eagle reports. Local residents have complained about very large, aggressive rats in the area along Montague Street between Clinton and Court near the Chipotle restaurant and the neighboring construction site, as reported by Mary Frost in the Eagle. Those complaining […]
The Eagle’s Mary Frost quotes Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation President Eric Landau saying that increased police presence and newly installed security cameras should prevent the sort of incidents that have troubled the Park during previous periods of warm weather. The Eagle story also notes that Joralemon Street and Willowtown residents think that more needs to […]
