Via the CCGH newsgroup:

Fine artists and photographers invite the general public to visit their studios over the November 8th & 9th  weekend,noon – 7 PM.   The two dozen participating studios are located within easy walking distance of each other.  Expect to see a wide range of art,including painting, photography and ceramics.  By going directly to an artist’s studio you can see a larger collection of the artists work and more variety than you would see at a gallery show. You can see what your Brooklyn neighbors have been creating and see how hard they have been working to bring you beautiful items. This is   experience, walking through the studios of several very different artists.

A great annual tour to allow neighbors to see what our artist neighbors have been working on in 2014.

This link below will show you art of the artists who are participating. It also links to our websites. Maps of all the artists can be obtained on line or at many shops in the area and at  the studio of any of the artists.

REPOST: West Nile Spraying Tonight!

A repost from South Slope News (and thank goodness they found out since the City seems to not care about letting its residents know as we know from previous year’s spraying) about the spraying for West Nile Virus tonight, Tuesday, 9/16 from 8pm–6am (nice window DOH!).

Anyone else hear about this today? Nothing on Notify NYC e-mails to us.

Bad Accident on 21st St and 6th Ave

photo 1

Just in from a CCGH member, a really bad accident at 21st Street and 6th Ave across from Tobby’s. Seems one car actually flipped over. He did not think anyone was fatally injured, but FDYN and NYPD were on the case asap. This is a huge problem on 6th Ave between 20th And 23rd Sts, as drivers frequently speed go get to 24th St (not sure why). With poor site lines on the side blocks, this happens a lot, thought not to today’s extent.

We hope the passengers are OK. Checking with CB7 to see if we can get more info. Anyone else witness this bad accident?

More info from South Slope News…2 of the folks in the accident went to the hospital with “serious but not life threatening injuries.

HAPPY Spring!

It’s been a while since we have regularly posted on the blog. Part due to “life,” also part to do with SNOW. Well no longer, almost 80 degrees today and happy Mother’s Day and happy spring GWH-ers. More spring posts coming soon, though we’d love to hear what folks think are issues (good or bad) withing the neighborhood, plus goings on, announcements, new photos, etc. You can submit them to the CCGH newsgroup or e-mail us.

Here’s a wee-bit of spring inspiration from within our biggest neighbor Green-Wood!

DSNY Organics Collection in GWH

While South Slope News already had a post on this, we thought we’d pass along the info and links we received from CM Gonzalez’s office yesterday. Seems we’re part of this year’s DSNY Organics Collection pilot program. Greenwood Hts. (or most of it) is on the Wednesday mornings (just like recycling) with a drop off point at 15th St. and 7th Ave. (which strikes us as an odd location) CORRECTION: No location on this flyer/letter. Check their website for updates.
