Sure, we’re just a little partial when it comes to the neighborhood, but how could we not be when it’s such a perfect place for a fall stroll… and that’s without any art. We’re more than justified then in putting in a word for this weekend’s Flatbush Artists Studio Tour, at which 23 local artists will display their creations in homes, stores and other spaces around “Victorian” Flatbush. The second annual tour will include everything from sea urchin necklaces to anatomical glass paintings to some good old realist still-life.

The tour is free (unless you buy something, of course), and it’s from 11 to 4 on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 7 and 8. Tour map and more info here. On your way home, check out the manse featured in the just-launched Albemarle Renovation blog from Brownstoner. All considered, those pre-Edisonian electrical panels look like enviable problems to have.

Ample Hills kept things chill with candidate-themed ice cream flavors; a number of New Yorkers tried to profit in a different way by putting up Craigslist hookup ads for debate-watch sex; and all over the internet, people started […]
