The Word On The Street: Doric

A Contradiction of Column Nomenclature nys

As taken on Park Place yesterday May 23rd, 2015. Those of you, gentle readers, who are familiar with Greek architecture will understand why I find this amusing. For those who do not: I can only hope there is another apartment building somewhere called the “Corinthian” sporting Ionic columns. As far as “capitals” go, I prefer Carolingian myself.

Thus why I am sharing for everyone’s edification the statement issued by Community Board 1 Brooklyn’s SLA/DCA Committee recommending this liquor license be denied. Enjoy some facts for a change, gentle readers!

Community Board 1 Brooklyn voted against this liquor license being granted.

P.S.: If Bedford + Bowery is listening: exactly when are you going to approve my comment? Simply curious.
