Eight Shots Fired 78th and 5th Avenue




Sometimes people think they hear gunshots, but it is really just a car backfiring. 

Update: 10/22: Not this time though.

Eight gun shots were fired.  




Mathylde Frontus was the only politician who spoke about the shooting. Strangely, Councilman Brannan and Senator Gounardes don’t have anything to say about this.

Assemblywoman Frontus wrote: “Earlier this morning shots were fired towards three businesses on 5th Avenue and 78th Street in Bay Ridge. Although this incident occurred one block away from my district, I want to condemn this and all shootings taking place here in Southern Brooklyn and across our city. There is not much information available at this time regarding the motivation for these shots fired but the 68th precinct is actively investigating.”



Last night before midnight, there was a shooting incident on 78th and 5th Avenue.  

Hopefully, its people with poor aim and no one was around in the area.  A police car and ambulance are in the video.  See here

Gounardes Makes Appearance at CB10 Meeting



Andrew Gounardes doesn’t attend Community Board 10 Meetings.   


Except this week he did.


In June 2019,  Andrew thought he knew better than the members of Community Board 10. Although he didn’t attend the meeting, Gounardes wrote a letter to override CB10’s decision on bike lanes.  (See Gounardes’ letter)

Andrew Gounardes received support from a group who wanted painted bike lanes. Andrew Gounardes’ override placed uncovered bike lanes in our community. The bike lane near the highway showed Andrew Gounardes is not a street safety expert.  Other politicians have advocated covered bike lanes for safety, but not Andrew.



This week, Andrew was the only politician who was late to the meeting. 


Schools in yellow zones have been closed for weeks and Gounardes didn’t do anything to get them open. Yellow zoned are areas which have low coronavirus rates and schools were supposed to be open. Gounardes is afraid to speak out against Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio.



Andrew  told Community Board 10 about a bill that won’t be voted on for months because the NYS Senate is not in session. Gounardes had no regard for their time at this meeting, as he was looking for votes.  Maybe if Andrew didn’t override the Community Board there would be less people who want to vote him out! 





Also  Andrew Gounardes took money from developers and didn’t think we would find out. See here

Gray BMW Stolen in Dyker Heights




Tonight a gray BMW was stolen on 85th Street and 7th Avenue in Dyker Heights.   

Too much crime!


A woman was robbed on 16th Avenue and 80th Street:




There was a robbery at a grocery store on 86th Street and 22nd Avenue earlier in the day:





While the crime and people stealing is alarming, I am glad people are not being shot. Things can always be replaced.

Noise From Paving 3rd Avenue


A few weeks ago, they scraped 3rd Avenue to prepare it to be paved.


Tonight, they came back to pave the streets in the 90’s and 3rd Avenue


If you are hearing a low, continuous sound in Bay Ridge,  you are hearing the paving. 



No politicians mentioned it because they don’t care. It has to be on the calendar that the city shares with politicians.



It will just be one evening – put some music on and have a dance party.

Governor Cuomo’s Announcement on Schools



The rate of Covid-19 has dropped in some hotspots in Brooklyn and Queens. Yesterday, 2.17 was the citywide Covid positivity rate.

Bklyner shared this helpful map with data from 10/12 – 10/19: (See their excellent article

Purple zones is where Covid tested high:




Mayor de Blasio said, “Central Queens is doing better this week. Brooklyn and the Rockaways will require another week or two.”

Around noon, Governor Cuomo announce that he will redraw the zones and release a new map tomorrow. Mayor de Blasio said they are not using zip code data, but they will be using the zone data until this is resolved.

Schools in some areas will be able to open as the zones are reduced in some areas. Cuomo said he is going to go “block-by-block.”  See here







After Cuomo announced this on the news, Andrew Gounardes repeated the news like a parrot on social media.  He pretended he was “fighting to re-open schools.”   

Tweeting doesn’t equal “fighting.”   

Here Andrew Gounardes interprets what he heard Governor Cuomo say on the news because Andrew thinks people don’t understand the governor.  

We don’t need a parrot for the Mayor or Governor.





No, Andrew parents in schools in the yellow zone asked why their schools weren’t open last week.


Why didn’t Gounardes call Cuomo and get the information for parents when they asked him at the end of last week? 

We need politicians who can lead, not ones who tweet.
