I asked a gentleman working on site when this, the most snazzy laundromat I have ever seen, was slated to open. He said in a couple of weeks. So there have you!

Earlier this week I wrote about the curious happenings at 236 North 10 Street. Today I decided to swing by and see how things are shaking. I am pleased to report this bit of Bloomblight has become much more interesting.
More construction debris has found its way to North 11 Street.
The fence shows further signs of tampering.
And port-a-potty has been installed on Union Avenue. Intrigued by this most curious development I decided to go in for a closer look.
Not only was it unlocked…
but it was spotless! I would like to take a moment to thank the peeps behind this privy for graciously providing an amenity this block (and the community in general for that matter) so desperately needs: a clean public lavatory.
Now if we can get a functioning sidewalk we’ll be all aces!

Heather- please post this photo. This dog was found as a stray (with choke collar) near manhattan ave and dupont a few days ago and we’ve been trying to find the owner. We heard that there was a man driving around the area looking for a lost dog, but we have no other leads or contact info. We’re hoping one of your readers will recognize this pretty, brindle female pit mix.
If you know who this handsome pup belongs to please contact the folks at Dog Habitat at 347-601-8678 asap. Thanks!
