Weekend Links: Stork Celebrates One Year, Crown Heights Artists on Display, and Town Hall Outreach

(Stork preparing to open last March)

Apparently March is anniversary month on Franklin (see the post below). Stork turns one (an appropriate age for a baby boutique) this weekend, and they're having a little party on Sunday to celebrate. From their press release:

Over in Gowanus, five local (Crown Heights/Bed-Stuy) artists are on display in the BRIC Arts show "Cultural Fluency: Engagements with Contemporary Brooklyn," curated by CH denizen Erin Gleason. ILFA dropped the ball on their Wednesday night opening, but you can still swing by to check out their work from Tuesday-Saturday in the BRIC Rotunda Gallery, and put April 4 on your calendar, when they'll host a Q&A with the artists and curator. They've also launched an online forum for the project here.

Finally, the Crow Hill Community Association Town Hall Meeting on March 23 is approaching rapidly. Follow the link above to get involved.

A few things ILFA missed this week:

- DNAInfo wrote up a Caribbean Ballroom showcase that took place last weekend.

- Reader John sent along photos of work progressing at Bob & Betty's II / Pulp & Bean II across Eastern Parkway:

- Finally, our local pols were on their soapboxes, with Congressman Hakeem Jeffries discussing the impact of the sequester on Sandy relief, Councilwoman (and candidate for Public Advocate) Tish James proposing a resolution to better engage communities on the building of nearby casinos, and Congresswoman Yvette Clarke took to the Congressional blog to discuss the Voting Rights Act.


  1. Hey Nick, I found what looks like a new rendering of 341 Eastern Parkway online, and I have to say that it looks like the nicest looking version so far. Thought your readers would be interested to see what the final product is going to look like.--M.C.

  2. that IS nice for new construction, time will tell. still waiting to find out what the retail space will be (have heard medical offices)

  3. DC office space washington would love an opportunity to assist you. By providing DC office space washington with a few simple details (via the form on the right), DC office space washington will quickly turn around a report detailing all available office space within your organization’s parameters anywhere in the Washington Metropolitan Area.
