A new beginning

The rezoning review process is over. How good bad or indifferent the new zoning plan will be remains to be seen.
Either way, new things will always be happening in the neighborhood.
In the meantime, there is the People's Transporation Program going on every third Saturday at the 36 St. and 4th Ave. Station. There is a Brooklyn Food Coalition that meets in Sunset Park which is trying to bring healthy food into the area.
Stay tuned.

Taking a Break

If you haven't noticed, I haven't posted in a while. Not that I was the most consistent blogger to begin with. Anyway I started this project because of changes I saw in the neighborhood, not sure as to how to process them. Since Aug 2007 I have been active in a neighborhood group, the Sunset Park Alliance of Neighbors, which I urge you to plug into.

to join their listserv.

So that is it. Goodbye Blog, hello SPAN.
There is another woman who does a blog about the neighborhood, who is much more conscientious than I. What can I say? check out her blog. She is putting up a lot of important news and events.

One announcement:
this Thurs June 5 at 6 PM there will be a community-wide meeting concerning a proposed power plant project for the area. It will be at the UPROSE office located at 166A 22 St. Brooklyn NY.

Hope to see you there. If you are there, say hi.

Well I am not completely saying goodbye. I am going to put up some new pictures as soon as I download the disc. One of the reasons I am not such a great blogger is I don't own a camera (I have been using disposible cameras) so the visuals are not always consistent or up to date.

At least the mural is still there. Hopefully more neighbors will get involved in the fight to keep Sunset Park affordable, sustainable and people friendly.
For now, good night, Namaste and hasta luego.

Six months later...

Well it has been six months since I first noticed this condo and started this blog. It was empty then and as of today, no one seems to be living there.
Even the homeless guy is gone (but it is cold out there..hope he found a warm place). There are garbage cans but no people.
I checked the website for the realtor and I can't find any listing for it nor any "open house" activity.
Just emply windows...if anyone knows any different let me know.

Please no anonymous posts!

I had to delete an anonymous post that called this site filth because it is my policy to delete unsigned anonymous posts.

I have been called worse, anonymous person, and I think you should get over it. Aren't there bigger fish for you to fry besides annoying me? Would you entertain the thought that homelessness is filth, people without access to health care is filth, war is filth and abuse of authority is filth?

The homeless guy in the condo is gone. They put garbage cans there. Still no one is living there but I think I saw one "sold" sign.
