  • March | 2009 | Clinton Hill Blog | Page 2
    the gnarliest fur I ve seen on an alley cat SBG can be seen crossing Gates Ave between Franklin and Classon all the time He she often hangs in front of buildings and in the big church parking lot on the middle of the block if you want to come take a peek This pretty black and white cat pictured is also a regular While scary big gray terrorizes the neighborhood he walks down the block like he she owns it this pretty spotted cat prefers to lounge Wandering around Clinton Hill I found that people s perceptions of the neighborhood cats were pretty similar If the cat doesn t bother me why would I bother the cat Of course there was some dissension One person called cats a hazard while another mentioned the importance of capturing and spaying feral cats so that they don t reproduce which in the wild happens constantly Sandra Pigott has lived on Ryerson St for more than 15 years Her block has three abandoned lots which for cats is as appealing as a freshly opened can of Friskies See the picture below of two of the adjacent lots Ms Pigott said a whole family of cats lives on the block There s a black and white what do you call a tuxedo cat there s big black who is always on my deck there s a gray and white one and a little orange and white one she said adding that three black kittens had also been around lately A group of cats that travels and lives together is called a colony According to the New York City Feral Cat Initiative there are tens of thousands of cats living in the wilds of NYC Ms Pigott said the neighbors tried to get rid of the cats a few years ago but then they realized that if the cats were gone the rats came We have our own free exterminators she said Some residents including Jason Corace hardly ever see cats I ve lived here for seven years and I can t remember seeing a stray he said The majority of cats seen live in close proximity with abandoned lots which means there are more cats on the outskirts of the neighborhood than on the interior more desirable blocks In one lot on Franklin Avenue near Lexington Ave pictured there is a lot that serves as a home for a popular neighborhood cat Brooklyn One resident of more than 10 years who lives on the block Melvin Sinclair said Brooklyn was a friendly tiger cat that everyone knew Unfortunately for me Brooklyn was nowhere to be found But evidence of his existence was See the picture below On the corner of Grand Ave and Gates Ave I was speaking with another resident Charles Anokam who has lived in Clinton Hill for six years Just as he was telling me that the only time he sees cats is at night a black cat with white legs bolted across the street Like any good New Yorker the cat was fast and wove in and out of the oncoming traffic like a pro Mr Anokam laughed and said that stray cats were just a part of life If you have any good cat stories leave them in the comments This entry was posted in observations on March 20 2009 by lesterhead Brownstone Brooklyn Garden District Party

Greene Early this Summer 28 Replies When my husband and I first moved to Fort Greene from the East Village a few years ago we quickly developed a wish list of places that we missed from our old neighborhood that we couldn t find replacements for in Fort Greene Among these places were a butcher an Ethiopian restaurant we used to love going to Ghenet on Mulberry and a beer garden a la Zum Schneider on Avenue C I m happy to say that many of our wishes have already been granted Provisions Bati and now we re going to have the beer garden we d hoped for 7 minutes walk from our apartment Der Schwarze Koelner will soon occupy 710 Fulton as rumored on Brownstoner and originally on the Real Fort Greene in January Dale a Mancunian who lived in Cologne Germany for 15 years and his girlfriend Randi a native German from Stuttgart will be opening the beer garden come late June or early July I had a chance to talk to them about their plans Can you describe the beer garden We ll have communal tables sidewalk seating and a small garden out back and we ll offer snacks and full meals The food will be inexpensive we plan to price 80 of our meals under 10 We really want to focus on inexpensive food we live here and it s hard to go out to eat for 2 for under 40 Why Fort Greene Why not Best neighborhood in Brooklyn Plus we live here What does the name Der Schwarze Kölner mean It can be read a few ways it refers to a big cathedral in Cologne and the literal translation is The dark Cologner or The dark skinned Cologner which kind of describes me What beers do you plan to have on tap A lot Here is a preview Weinstephaner Schneider Weisse Hofbräu Gaffel Kölsch and Reissdorf Kölsch etc We ll have 2

  • The Mysteries of 380 Clinton Ave | Clinton Hill Blog
    building and I guess the Teen Challenge center and are always very friendly and polite Log in to Reply J Heller September 8 2008 at 6 01 pm Thank you for solving that mystery For a drug treatment program the residents are extremely well behaved Living across the street the past 5 years there has not been one hint of any bad behavior coming from that building I read about teen challenge from the link you provided and while it seems to be a good thing it IS very faith based Bible study is part of the treatment program I wonder what the recidivism rate is Too bad they don t involve the community I would definitely volunteer to be a mentor or something like that Log in to Reply Beth September 8 2008 at 9 42 pm Years ago it was a residence for unwed mothers Sounds like it still might be Log in to Reply am September 9 2008 at 1 25 pm Ha I always thought it was some kind of cult Log in to Reply Daniel September 10 2008 at 3 41 pm There s gotta be a waiting list to order their coffee table book On second thought Log in to Reply Dakota March 1 2009 at 5 04 pm this building is going up for sale and the organization is going to move somewhere in the neighborhood any guesses at the price it includes the carriage house Log in to Reply Lori March 19 2009 at 11 13 pm Teen Challenge is a faith based drug and alcohol rehabilitation program with a HUGE success rate compared to other drug programs close to 90 I used to work there and they are going to be selling the house above sad but it is a nonprofit organization and operates soley on the donation of people They are always looking for volunteers so the person who commented above J heller go and talk with them they would love to have the community more involved and have tried in the past Log in to Reply Lisa January 9 2010 at 5 55 pm I wonder how much time the creator of this blog had on his her hands Rather than writing an extensive blog regarding the women at this house don t you think you could have found out who they are and what they do by knocking on their door or asking one of the women on the street My thoughts are that you MAY need to get a life and get over the blogging I would like to propose a question as to who this freak is that creeps out his her window making idiotic claims Any ideas By the way teen challenge ROCKS PTL Log in to Reply nelson presqueisle June 14 2010 at 10 17 pm My daughter is attending Teen Challenge as I am typing this The people are very dedicated and devoted to helping people in needed They are committed to teaching
