This well-appointed al fresco living room suite (found either Columbia Street or Van Brunt in Red Hook) comes from Gothamist‘s very own Jake Dobkin who writes:

i feel sad that bob didn’t live to witness my discover of the holy grail of street couches– the dockside three piece sectional!

Agreed. On that note I have contributed a number of north Brooklyn street couches for Robert Guskind’s upcoming memorial service including a real beauty I found in front of Radiac on Grand Street last summer. Anyone have an extra Geiger counter laying around?

From Mackerelville To Dangertown

Lest you think you think you have little to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day my fellow Greenpointers, life could be much, much worse. The Garden Spot of the Universe did not have a very happy turkey day 125 years ago. Don’t believe me? Read this article from the November 29, 1883 edition Brooklyn Daily Eagle and see for yourself.

What constituted “Dangertown” here in 11222, you ask? I’m saving that for an extra juicy post! Otherwise lest any of you are wondering “Crow Hill” is now known as Crown Heights. It was given this moniker because it was an African-American community. And next year we will have an African-American president. How times have changed— for the better!

Be kind to your neighbors today. Love them for who they are, not what they are. We’re all in this together.
