What was life like after Sandy knocked Fairway out of commission? “I felt like a wandering Jew,” said Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, speaking to the throng gathered in front of the Red Hook grocery store. “For four months…wandering from store to store to store.” Fortunately for the borough president and for Brooklyn, the days of fruitless wandering are over. Fairway is back in Red Hook! (more…)

In a glorious Brooklyn triumph over Hurricane Sandy, Fairway Market in Red Hook is re-opening its doors for business a week from today on March 1.

We interrupt our Dazed and Confused coverage to inform you that 1) a former Miss Brooklyn was just crowned Miss New York and 2) Mallory Hagan was much curvier two years ago, when she was crowned Miss Brooklyn and talked about becoming a Dove “real beauty” model. Seems like cruel pageant reality bit her in the rump because it looks like she peeled off about 20 pounds (and, by the way, did a reverse-hipster migration from Bedford-Stuyvesant to Park Slope.) Hagan, a junior at FIT, according to the News, advances to the Miss America pageant in January. It’s not often enough that we get to be a crass, superficial, hot-or-not blog, so therefore we must ask: which way is Hagan sexier? Ladies? Fellas?

Miss Brooklyn 2010 or Miss Recent New York City Transplant? On Sunday, this year’s Miss Brooklyn crown went to Mallory Hagan, a 21-year-old gal living in Bed-Stuy who dazzled, tap-danced and took the pageant title like a pro, which, it seems she is. In Alabama. Before Sunday, Hagan was known most recently as Miss Chattahoochee Valley 2008 (Alabama). Before that, as Miss Smiths Station Outstanding Teen 2006 (also Alabama). Clearly, Hagan knows how to win pageants, and she’s got talent, for sure. So that covers the “Miss,” but Brooklyn? The competition doesn’t even require its contestants to live here. (more…)
