Remembrance for Ruth Bader Ginsberg 9/20

 

 

 

There will be a remembrance for Brooklynite, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, on Sunday, September 19th at 1:00 PM outside the Brooklyn Municipal Building at 210 Joralemon Street.   

Ruth Bader Ginsburg lived in Flatbush on East 9th Street. (See here)  She attended James Madison High School.   

For college, Ginsburg went to Cornell University.  Then she attended Harvard Law School, where she was one of nine women in a class of 500. 

She fought against gender discrimination. Ginsburg won five out of six gender cases that she argued before the Supreme Court.   

Governor Cuomo said he is selecting an artist to create a statue of Ginsburg to be placed in Brooklyn.

Man Hurt in Bensonhurst. Suspect Detained


 

 

Around 7:00 pm tonight, a  man was hurt near 2167 – 74th Street in Bensonhurst.   It was first announced that the man was shot (in the leg) – see picture above. Now people are saying the man was hurt in the backyard but he wasn’t shot. 

There are many videos of police and emergency vehicles in the area so something happened.  See here   

Hopefully, the man is okay – there are no update about his status, but it does say that a suspect was detained.

 

———————————————————–   

A little over an hour later, there was a serious accident down the block – see here

Daddy-O’s BBQ is Opening on 3rd Avenue

 

 

 

Daddy O’s BBQ hung a sign at 8812 – 3rd Avenue in Bay Ridge. See menu  

Daddy O’s is in Staten Island. The same people who own Daddy O’s BBQ NYC in Staten Island are opening this place. It’s going to be a little while before the place is ready, but they will start posting updates on  their social media pages as opening day gets closer.   See here and here

This is opening where Standard Burger used to be (next to Hom).   See here   They changed the storefront from light blue to bright red!

It’s great to see new businesses opening – even during the pandemic. Congratulations to the owners – may you have as much success in Bay Ridge, as you have in Staten Island!

Business Owner Confronts Senator Gounardes

 

A business owner on Fort Hamilton Parkway contacted Senator Andrew Gounardes when her business was broken into. She did not hear back from Senator Gounardes. 

The business owners approached Andrew Gounardes in the park and he wasn’t apologetic for not responding. He didn’t seem to care. 

Playing politics, rather than helping all people in the district when they call is a regular theme for Andrew and the senator before him as well. 

Gounardes has a large staff and communication from his office is poor.  My husband asked Gounardes for a breakdown of how tax money was spent in our district. Gounardes office didn’t reply and when I discussed it on social media weeks later, his chief-of-staff sent a very incomplete list – no names of organizations or schools that received money (just the word schools).
