17 10 2009

The protesters marched down Court St. and on to Atlantic Ave., led Turturro and James who encouraged onlookers to say “Brooklyn if you love Brooklyn!” The crowed was buoyed by the whimsical outfits and tunes of the Magic Circus Band, who followed closely behind. The group  stopped to protest in front of Michael Bloomburg’s Brooklyn campaign office, where they broke into a chant of “Brooklyn’s not for sale!”

The crowd then marched through the intersection of Atlantic and Flatbush. There, Councilwoman James, bullhorn in hand, proclaimed to gridlocked motorists: “if you think traffic is bad today, just imagine it with an arena!”

South Portland Association is having a small fundraiser this coming Sunday at 61 South Portland Avenue (between Lafayette and DeKalb). It starts at 5:30 PM and will also feature a clarinet quartet (all members of the Brooklyn Philharmonic)playing some amazing Mozart, refreshments and updates on court cases. Suggested donation of $20 is pretty reasonable and every cent will be turned over to DDDB. So come on over.

I’ve been pondering whether to sell my bmw for a while now.
And it’s a nightmare to find fair car buyers in the
local area – until I came across a trusted group of dealers.

See, trusted car buyers can be very difficult to come
across on the Internet nowadays – unless of course, you
