Heart of Brooklyn Does the Driving
The folks at Heart of Brooklyn have been doing a lot of great work for the area recently, and their latest initiative is an inspired way to show off the neighborhood's burgeoning retail, bar, and restaurant scene and give locals a free ride on a Saturday night. Target First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum return this weekend, and Heart of Brooklyn will be running a free shuttle from the event throughout Prospect Heights (with a brief stop at St. John's and Classon, on the edge of Crown Heights). The complete schedule is here, and a map of the route is above.
Guides on the shuttle will be providing recommendations for shops, restaurants, and bars in the area, as well as handing out maps and discounts. If you're a local merchant and you want to be mentioned, contact HoB here (they've already got a nice page of local business info here). If you're just a resident looking for a fun Saturday night, let Heart of Brooklyn drive you around and give you some great discounts at local spots that you'd probably hit anyway.
