Parks remain officially closed by the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation (every time I type that I have a sudden flash of Ron Swanson’s ‘stache across my vision). But Prospect Park Alliance has done preliminary damage assessments and we now have updated info about how to get involved in post-Sandy cleanup of Brooklyn’s parks. Sign up here to volunteer for cleanup at Prospect Park this Friday, Saturday & Sunday for 10am-1pm shifts. McCarren Park also needs volunteers for Saturday only 10am-1pm. And don’t forget there’s a Walk-a-Thon fundraiser on Saturday and donations are always accepted. You can also help restore Brooklyn’s only forest by planting a commemorative tree.
Take cover here and wait until the coast is clear, AKA the sales have ended.
Kick out the glams, get trashed, be sketchy, stay wicked, get a short stack with your tall boy, go back to the basics & more ways to have a spiffy weekend
Nothing says autumn like competitively consuming mass amounts of apple cider donuts.
We honor today's exciting news that cars will be exiled from the park with a roundup of other good local news from this year.
