The folks at Uncommon Goods reached out to us with a fab contest they are running this summer the “Brooklyn Flag Project” with our fav e-newsletter/blog Brooklyn Based. And with SwissMiss and Brooklyn’s-own Marty Markowitz as judges, it ought to be fun! We may even enter on for Greenwood Heights. Who’s gonna enter?
For those in the community who made it to the event, we hope you enjoyed a beautiful day and a great commemoration at Green-Wood. This year was especially nest, as they had many more re-enactors than in years past, cavalry, cooking and sewing demonstrations, music…and of course, cannon! For those who did not make it, take a gander ant the slideshow below. Did you take photos? If so, please post a link!
Ah, 23rd St. during the monsoon season, it sends me back to the good old days…of dry hot weather in late July. Oh, well. Please send us your photos!
Thought it would be an interesting feed to showcase. Seems lots of folks love the neighborhood! And remember to tag your photos “Greenwood Heights, Brooklyn”
See updates at the bottom of this post (both pro and con, last updated 10/18/12).
The blogosphere is awash (well, in our area of Bklyn) with the news of the long awaited opening of Greenwood Park (7th Ave and 20th St.). (June 30, 2012)
(via Brooklyn Based)
Yelp: “Fantastic job Greenwood Park folks! It was worth every second of the wait.”
Brooklyn Based: “Really low-key, spacious, basically the perfect addition to the nabe. Between this, Sea Witch, and Quarter Bar, South Slope is KILLING it for outdoor drinking–rad rad rad place to be for the summer!”
Brownstoner: “Greenwood Park, Greenwood Heights’ first beer garden (as far as we’re aware) opened last…”
(Updated), though some pretty “ouchy” reviews on Yelp
(Updated 07/19/12) and some nice comments via BKLYN News 12.
(Updated 10/18/12) While the beer garden has received some bad press in the Brooklyn Paper a while ago, 6 residents of properties across the street from Greenwood park showed up at CB7 on Wednesday night and told their story during public comment. Many complaints of noise, public intoxication, urination, fights, public sex and more. I guess this is something the owners need to address.

And remember, if you have a flickr account, and picks of the ‘nabe, make sure to join up and post.
