Weiner and the Brooklyn Representation Fallout
The Brooklyn Museum has over 2000 photographs of historical Brooklyn which are not on display by Photographer George Bradford Brainerd who lived from 1847 throught 1887. Over 200 of them are reproduced on the Museums Website and it deserves a look (not to mention an exhibit). This is a marvelous and critical collection which preserves our heritage.
The latest news from the MTA is that they are taking over Nostrand Avenue with a exclussive new Bus Lane, dividing one of the tightest and busiest streets in the Boro, in half, and harrasing Brooklyn Residents for years to come. All this is from an MTA that cancelled the Cortelyou Rd bus supposedly because it didn't have enough money.
One of the worst aspects of this Bus Zone will be the ability of the Bus Drivers create total mahaim by controlling the lights through the Junction, one of the hardest intersections in NY to travel through because of the blocking action of the lights on the crossing over the Flatbush and Nostrand avenue crossing
The biggestest Secret in NY is the Department of Educations's phone number, which 311 doesn't have and which isn't listed on their website.
The number is 718-935-2000
Just how bad are they? MTA Chairman Dale Hemmerdinger earlier this week predicted riders would be calling up their legislators later this year, saying, "My God, I can't get to work on time!"
While Brooklyn has always been where America is at home, small neighborhoods, tight communities, and strong culture, a new element has sprung open on our shores, one of hipsters, world acclaimed artists, craftsman, fashion and youth. And as the world has flooded into our borough, few places could have been better prepared to accept them. And while the industrial brawn of this city has waned, new centers of craftsmanship, theater, film, technology and commerce have found homes all across this borough. In case you haven't heard, Brooklyn is now the place to be. The flurry of activity in our burg has ripples all across the world from the salons of Paris to the tech hubs of India. Brooklyn is going through a historical transformation, such as the likes which the world rarely witnesses. Come join Brooklyn-Living in the celebration this great place.
