Hey Miss Heather,

Hope you are well. I wanted to a share with you that this Friday, Sept 10th is Fashion’s Night Out. A global outreach to get people excited about shopping produced by Vogue, NYC and the CFDA. Most of the shops on Franklin St are participating and we all have collaborated on promoting the night. I have attached the flyer for it and would love to see if you are interested in featuring it on your site. Each store will have different events going on. Some will have DJ’s, free giveaways, complimentary drinks, discounts etc. (Alter will also be selling the official FNO tee shirt as well as having a photo studio in the shop to shoot all customers who attend and of course champagne) Its going to be fun night on Franklin St. There will be an after party at Veronica People’s Bar as well!

This is the second year for this event and last year was great for all the shops that participated. Only 4 last year, this year 10!

Duly blogged! Show your local indie businesses a little love this upcoming Friday and check this out!

Fashion’s Night Out

From The New York Shitty Inbox: 74 Kent Street Raided?

74 Kent Street

Last night I received a number of emails regarding helicopter activity along the waterfront. I have a creeping suspicion the following email (from someone who wishes to remain anonymous) might have some thing to do with this. Anonymous writes:

…I know first hand that there was a DEA /SWAT team raid on the building last night.  There were several vans of fully armed and armored agents in addition to a handful of stereotypical nondescript white guy spooks.  Several people were arrested and the street between franklin and west was closed well into the early morning as they were seizing evidence from the building and using sledge hammers to do it… It’s truly strange days around here now.  Ms. Kim of the river barrel was a witness to some of this as well.  I’ll let you know more when I know more.

74 Kent Street is home to DL Laboratories: a business dealing which deals with caulks, sealants and other such stuff. I can hardly wait to hear what this is about. Sheesh…

Miss Heather

UPDATE, 11:43 p.m.: per the New York Post one of the purported ringleaders of this Quaalude ring is Thomas Fairley. It shouldn’t come as surprising news that he is the owner of 74 Kent Street. For more reading about the “big bust” in Greenpoint click here. Apparently a substance abuse counselor from our public school system has been arrested as well. Nice.

LAST GASP: Greenpoint Degentrification Watch

Today I intended to call it an early night. I’ve been running around like crazy all week. I’m tired. Then the following found its way to my inbox tonight at 10:06 p.m. Man, oh Manischewitz

The owner of this Lexus Infinity (which has been unburdened of its wheels) writes:

Hello Miss Heather,

Thought you may find this a bit interesting… All four OEM wheels stolen from my vehicle on Kent Street between Manhattan Ave. and Franklin St. in Greenpoint. Pics taken today 3/18/10 at 6:50p
I have become acclimatized to the odd carbecque here and therebut this?!? In the Historic District no less?!? I know a number of people who live on Kent Street. They keep a very watchful eye over their block. For this reason I am both amazed and concerned that someone could pull off stealing four tires without getting caught. But I suppose that’s gentrification for you.

Otherwise— and quite frankly— I’m speechless.

Miss Heather

P.S.: I have been told these tires were MIA as of 4:30 a.m. Thursday morning. I guess some people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day differently than others.
