    Have you had any complaints from readers of your blog about the relatively new niteclub called Lox? It’s on Putnam between Grand and Cambridge and the music is unbelievably loud. Many of my neighbors on Cambridge have complained to 311 and the 88th Precinct to no avail. Anyone interested in organizing an effort to make them control the late night noise?

    I heard that the owner of the liquor store at Greene and Grand was shot in the arm around 9 pm on Wednesday night. I have not been able to find any additional info. CHB, have you heard anything?

    I walked by Ft. Greene park at 10:45 tonight and cops were all over Washington Pk at the corner of DeKalb. The people there said that someone found a body (or part of a body) in a box. Details were sketchy.

    Anyone else know what happened?

    This is a response to the question about the liquor store owner on Greene and Grand being shot last Wednesday. At about 9:00 pm a man walked in with a gun. He demanded the money from the register. When the owner reached down to open the register, the guy fired. He is ok. He was aiming for his head but the owner ducked and covered his head with his hands. He was hit in his wrist. The cops caught the guy a couple of nights later.

    There is construction going on at the corner of Lafayette and Franklin – where Romeo’s used to be. Any news on what that is going to become? I hope it is food and I hope it is delicious.

    I just moved to the neighborhood and was wondering if you know anything about the Soup Kitchen on Washington between Fulton and Gates? It’s attached to the International Evangelist Womens Workers building, whose number was disconnected. i wondered if it was still a functioning kitchen, if so I’d ask about volunteering on Thanksgiving.

    I don’t know much about the event that happened on October 13th in reference to the body found. But i did hear about it & it was said to have been a box that was there for several days everyone thought it was a Halloween prank. When they finally opened the box it was a dismembered body. The story is kept VERY quiet because they want to continue to charge a rediculous price for the apartments/houses in Fort Greene & surrounding nieghborhoods & they don’t want to discourage potential buyers/renters/development. So nevermind our safety, keep it pretty/quiet & the masses will continue to come. Sad but true.

    Little House on Clinton has been closed for the past month and a half or so. At first I just assumed they were on a nice long vacation. But now i’m worried… i remember the lady that runs it was saying the owner wanted to up their rent. You heard anything about what’s going on?

    Hello CHB,

    Update on Little House on Clinton – I saw a ‘For Rent’ sign up on the storefront this afternoon… anyone know what happened? I LOVED this joint!

    Anyone interested in what is really going on at the B. Angel building then email us. I will get you and exclusive update. Too much bs surrounding what is happening and what is happening is something that everyone needs to know the truth about…

    Dear CHB,

    I read that you are collecting info about musical projects. You must feel inundated by the submissions at this point, but I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity.

    I live in Ft. Greene, and record music with my roommate. Our joint recordings are not yet available, but here is a site with some recordings of mine. Feel free to post it, of course.

    In our 7th year and 2nd year as an official fundraiser for Ft.Greene Park- we’re featuring live music on a more intimate scale than in previous years,when the BAMLDC and the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership provided a large stage and music program close to our and GreenMarkets location. DBP’s budget is too small this year, so SPOKE,an acoustic jazz quartet has performed,4/18 right there on the DeKalb Ave. sidewalk perimeter of the Park and will be returning this Saturday,5/2. We’re looking for other musicians- interested in playing,promoting themselves and selling their CDs- so please give my contact info to any you might know-including David P.-who does seem keen on the idea of self-promotion but doesn’t publish his direct contact info on MySpace. Thanks and come on over and browse,shop and schmooze at the Artisan-Market.

    There is a rental space available at 216 Greene Ave. Located right next to Choice Greene. It’s indoor space that could be great for parties or business needs. I know people around the hill are always looking for party spaces, thought I could help!

    Afternoon to all,

    First, I’d like to express my opinion of a very nicely written and organized blog.

    Happy to have stumbled upon it.

    Been in the neighborhood of Clintonhill since 2006, after residing in a variety of neighborhoods in Manhattan for close to 20 years……and might I add, I have no intention of returning to.

    Wondering Melissa if that indoor space is on the ground level?

    Looking for a space that could be converted into an eclectic mix of art/cafe/merchandise that would be available to people in our community.

    Thank You – suzette

    Hi CHB,
    I’m wondering if there’s anything being done to help the people who lived in the building that collapsed on Myrtle on Sunday. Do you know of any fund set up to help out? Or, could one be created?

  20. erika

    Does anyone know anything about a helicopter hovering around Fulton and Washington early this morning, around 4:30 am? My husband and I live on St James Place and Fulton and were awakened by it circling over our building. I couldn’t find out anything about it anywhere on line.

    Just would like to warn other dog owners that frequent Fort Green Park…about 2 dogs owned by the same owner one dog a pit bull /female/white, the other mastiff mixed with /male/white (mastiff is attack trained).. On the 21st of July these two two viciously attacked our pug who is all of 22 pounds, if the parks person had not hit the mastiff over the head with a garbage can these dogs would have killed our Romeo.. The owner had these dogs leashed Yes! ,but could not and still can not control them.. So be careful and aware if these dogs come near your dog. both are vicious and dangerous and the owner can not control there actions
