Gardening in Small Spaces by Jane Herro

Spring is in full swing and the gardens are waking up! It’s not too late to start your own – even if you’re lacking in outdoor space. There are plenty of options for those of you who want to flex their green thumb but may not have a backyard or rooftop to do so. I […]

RHI Impacting Mental Health in Red Hook.

RHI (Red Hook Initiative) has been offering one-on-one counseling to the youth in Red Hook for the last year.  This was just a start to what has become a partnership with ThriveNYC’s Connections to Care (C2C) to expand mental health care in Red Hook, thanks to a three year grant received last March from The Mayor’s Fund to Advance […]

A Cozy New Bar Opens on Sackett Street.

The space at 359 Sackett Street has transformed from a little cafe and coffee shop into a cozy bar called Little Mountain Cocktail Bar and we stopped in the other day to snap some shots.  Its very tight in there, which we love because it feels really intimate but it was hard to get good […]

Spotlight on Carroll Gardens Pet Grooming.

When we glanced at the new space we originally thought it was declaring that this record store was “almost ready” as in “coming soon”.  But we soon discovered our mistake. Like […]

Trump and Kushner’s Dirty Properties.

We’ve blogged in the past about Trump companies and properties around New York city.  These blogs were mainly to share the information for boycotting purposes as many have been doing in the #grabyourwallet movement.  We recently came across an article in NYCurbed that reports on Trump properties for a different reason.  We all know that the […]

A Trip to the Prospect Park Zoo.

Many wouldn’t think to go to the zoo in Prospect Park in the middle of February but we’d like to argue that it’s the best time to go!! We visited over the weekend and the animals were out and enjoying the cool temperatures. Over the weekend they were celebrating Lunar New Year and had an array […]
