The Ocean Parkway story

The Ocean Parkway story

Brooklyn Half-Marathon on Ocean Parkway

Great day for a run. Not so great if you were in your car running on empty 

Short video of Brooklyn halfmarathon on Ocean Parkway. Hardly anyone lining the route but there was something very peaceful without the din of cars and just the soft shuffling of thousands of people on their way to Coney Island.

South Brooklyn not included in Bike Share program

I inquired into the bike share program for Ocean Parkway area. This is the response that I received from DOT.
"Thank you for your interest in NYC Bike Share. We’re starting bike share initially in the neighborhoods where travel demand is the highest: Manhattan’s Central Business District and nearby residential areas, including Brooklyn neighborhoods of DUMBO, Downtown, Fort Greene, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Park Slope. If there is enough demand, we hope to subsequently expand the program in all five boroughs. However, for the initial phase of bike share there will not be any station in Brooklyn CB’s 12, 14, or 15." -NYC DOT

Inside the $14 million dollar house

This house is easy to walk by unless you're looking for it. Many similar exteriors along OP but it's the inside that has people talking...mostly put-downs. Can a house be a victim of bullying?
