Experience the Heights February 6th

Local busineses are coming together with Brooklyn-based MASAI Marketing to produce "Experience the Heights," a community event to be held Saturday, February 6 at Five Myles Gallery on St. John's Place. Organizers say "The event will focus on local businesses and talent in the Crown Heights and Prospect Heights neighborhoods. We are highlighting the growth and eclectic aspects of both neighborhoods. Our objective is to help garner additional visibility for the participating businesses."

They've picked a great day for it--February 6th is a First Saturday, which means crowds nearby for the Brooklyn Museum and, hopefully, a little love from the Heart of Brooklyn Shuttle. The event is free and open to the public, and I've copied the text of their flyer below:

Wine bars, art galleries, and toy boutiques . . .
From exclusive boutiques selling that one of a kind piece
to friendly cafes where hospitality is common ground.

  1. Nice! Something to do during the day while I wait for 5pm free Museum time.

  2. Greetings! Unfortunately, most pedestrians discover a danger, only sadly, when victimized and so I wanted to inform you of, a timely and useful tool intended to reduce the year-round risk of injury and fatality from contact voltage. And so you are aware, I confer with Con Edison's Stray Voltage and Public Affairs Units and contribute to Wet Nose Guide and New York Dog Chat. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you. In appreciation and with best regards,
