  • Screaming on Vanderbilt Last Night
    Did anyone else hear terrified screaming on Vanderbilt last night, around 12:15am? I was woken up from a light sleep by a woman's horrifying screams: two long screams, and a short scream that ended abrubtly. I was so disturbed I called the kids at Happy Hour, figuring they were still up, to ...

  • New coffee bar on Washington
    Don't remember anyone commenting on this. There is a new coffee bar opening on Washington bet. Prospect and St Mark's. New World Coffee - I think it's a chain but still it beats Starbuck's and is a welcome addition IMO.

  • Chopper flying overhead on Eastern/Underhill at 6am!
    Last night we slept with our window open, since our building is way overheated and that's our only option for temperature regulation. At 6 a.m. we were woken up by loud chopper noises. We peered out the window (bleary-eyed of course), to discover a helicoper floating around right above our building at Eastern ...

  • Decent liquor store in FG?
    Does anyone know of a decent liquor store in Fort Greene? I just came back from the place on Fulton and Ashland, and it's really subpar. The shelves were all half-empty and the selection was between bad or worse (and I by no means am a liquor snob). I'm content drinking the cheap stuff but ...

  • Ginger beer
    Anyone know where to get proper ginger beer. Been jonesing for a good Dark and Stormy but couldn't find any real ginger beer. Admittedly, I haven't looked that hard but there must be somewhere in PH that carries it. The beer distributor on Washington and Bergen says he carries it but they are always out.

  • We won!

    The Curbed Neighborhood of the Year poll! Okay, it's more a testament to how much we like the neighborhood than anything else, but it's still cool.

    Tune into the comments for bitter snarking from those who think that internet polls are scientifically valid.
