  • Anyone have a problem at Ample Hills Creamery July 19?
    My girlfriend and I went to the Ample Hills Creamery Gowanus location for the first time last night -- Saturday, July 19th -- and unfortunately she got very, very sick immediately afterward.

  • Prices in Gowanas
    Of course prices everywhere are through the roof, but is it insane to pay over $1000/sq ft in Gowanus? I know the area is on an upswing and there's going to be rezoning and all. But is that just too damn high for a condo at this point?

  • Animal (appearing) skeleton in former McDonald's site on 4th Avenue and 1st Street
    A most disgusting sight.  I phoned it into 311 and was switched around. Bottom line after being asked whether there was still flesh on it and might it be a rat (it's not):  it is apparently not the Dept. of Sanitation or other city responsibility because it is considered private property. It looks like it ...
