Bay Ridge Slow Down Before Someone Dies!

 

Councilman Brannan wrote about the accident that happened today. A middle school student in our area had to be taken to the hospital.  

 

 

Brannan is asking for more money for traffic enforcement.

Someone will give the money and we will get more ticket agents on our avenues because people don’t believe there is an issue.

Where are all the beat cops that money was allocated for?

It’s All in the Wording…….Why Kadia Goba’s Reporting is Important to Us

 

 

 

 

 

From those underlined words above, it sounds like the building is being sold from under the store by a greedy landlord. 

Stores are closing all over Bay Ridge and people are blaming greedy landlords.

But not so fast…..journalists in this area may cover similar stories, but Kadia Goba, journalist for Bklyner always has a little bit more in her articles. Sometimes her articles are breaking stories that are shared all over social media and other times they are informative articles that help the community.

Here, Kadia Goba wrote:

 

 

 

The owner of the business is the property owner. Why wouldn’t she just say it was time to sell her property and the business?   Property Shark value. The owner has been in Bay Ridge for 20 years. Since she purchased the property, it has increased quite a bit which shows the area is very vibrant!

It’s strange that the owner didn’t just write, “I am selling the building.”

But I am glad we have Kadia Goba reporting on the whole issue!

Melissa McCarthy was in Bay Ridge Today

 

Update: Woohoo – see the video here

There was a film production crew at 92nd and 4th Avenue across from Harbor Fitness today. We weren’t in Brooklyn, but we received pics and updates all day! (Thank you Bay Ridge)

Melissa McCarthy was filming her new movie, The Kitchen. It’s an action/crime/comedy movie with Tiffany Haddish that takes place in the 1970’s. See here  The movie is due to be released in September 2019. See here for more info

 

 
 

Nunzio-Lucy Hair Salon at 9208 – 4th Avenue was turned into Colleen’s Hair and Nail Salon. Old style garbage cans were placed in front of Subways Sandwich Shop to make it look like the 70’s.

See pics of Melissa McCathy in Bay Ridge here  

Tiffany Haddish & Elisabeth Moss Film here

 

 

 

An old city bus, a lot of black garbage bags and the  filming trucks  lined the street around the set. 

The Kitchen has filmed in other parts of Brooklyn too including: Sunset Park, Park Slope and Gravesend.

From the Permit notes:  Three actors exit beauty salon. One actress holds an envelope full of cash and places it in her purse.
