A few items for today:
We posted about the new Southern menu at Water Street Restaurant a few weeks ago. If you still have not tried it yet, Groupon is offering a special deal (today only) for $8 for $16 toward “Southern lunch fare and drinks” (or $15 for $30 toward dinner).
Many of you have sent this link in, so I’ll post it here. WSJ.com posted a national article about Dumbo. We all know Dumbo has been highlighted a lot in National publications. One of the reasons for the DumboNYC.com site was because no one knew what Dumbo was. Now many people know what it is. However, we noticed that WSJ doesn’t have the Dumbo boundaries correct. The map of Dumbo is incorrect. Per the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission report, Dumbo includes Bridge Street to the West, Main Stret to the East, parts of York Street to the South and the waterfront to the North.
There is a Community Council Meeting tonight at 7pm at 55 Washington Street, Suite 512. Call community affairs (718-875-6850) for further information. The 84th Precinct covers these residential areas: Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo, Boerum Hill, Vinegar Hill and the Farragut Residences. Someone may want to bring up the incident with the stranger from yesterday.
