Spring Soccer Leagues to be Announced at Brooklyn Bridge Park

By , 23 January, 2013, 1 Comment

We are already loving the new Pier 5 at Brooklyn Bridge Park. With warmer temps creeping up on us last week, we got out to play some soccer and check out the recently built five acres of sports fields. So we are totally psyched to see that the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy will host its own BBP soccer leagues there for both adults (Wednesday evenings) and kids (Saturdays) this spring. Though details are sparse, registration will begin 1 Feb. and the season will run from March 1 – May 25. More to come as we get it.

There is actually no just wife for medical leg. All peripherals are new on itunes and hulu.

Brooklyn Bridge Park Opens New Pier 5

By , 13 December, 2012, No Comment

Check it peeps. Brooklyn Bridge Park opened its brand new Pier 5 this week, which includes five acres of sports fields, playgrounds and other super awesome amenities.
There’s the 200,000 square feet of synthetic turf, a Picnic Peninsula with built-in hibachis, tetherball poles and two play areas for both older and younger kids. And if you’re a fishing type, there will be four bait prep tables to help you up your game. Thankfully, twenty-six shade sails line the northern and southern sides of the pier for protection–unlike Pier 6, which doesn’t seem to address the problems of a blazing summer sun. That means we won’t all be huddling under the shade of a single, baby tree. Come on, you know what I’m talking about.

Brooklyn Rocks Carnival and Atlantic Antic

By , 24 September, 2012, No Comment

It’s now officially fall. And in our opinion, the best time to hit the carnival/street fair circuit in BoCoCa. This weekend will offer a plethora of fantastic events to check out, beginning with PS 29′s Brooklyn Rocks carnival at Carroll Park. The fun takes place on Saturday 29 Sept with Gymstars Hoopa Palooza at 2pm, The Kidville Rockin’ Railroad Band at 3pm and the Deedle Dee’s at 4pm. And of course, there will be the usual accoutrements of food, crafts and raffles to keep the whole family busy. All proceeds will benefit the arts at PS 29 so it’s a great cause as well as a great autumn activity.
Then, on Sunday 30 Sept, the 38th annual Atlantic Antic is back! This gigantic street festival goes from noon to 6pm (rain or shine) and highlights local businesses, food, crafts, shopping and music. But before you head out into the insanity that is the Antic, make sure to check this schedule of events:

BoCoCa is getting another bed and breakfast. If you’ve ever had guests visit, you know that even with the influx of larger hotels in Downtown Brooklyn, there’s not a whole lot of choices west of Court St. So loving The Delta by Voltaic Solaire–which also happens to be New York’s first self-powered building, according to Curbed NY.
The 2700 square foot building on the corner of 9th and Hamilton Ave. is powered by a solar skin, solar awning, solar panels and an almost soundless vertical-axis wind turbine. Bitchin’, no? The B&B will start renting in August and features a 345-square-foot studio on the second floor and triplexes on the third, fourth, and fifth floors. Expect costs to range from $150 to $350 a night.

Brooklyn Bridge Park Updates

By , 22 June, 2012, No Comment

Before the weekend begins, and this heat wave threatens to break (we hear this evening will bring KINDA cooler temps), wanted to update you on a few things going on in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Firstly, the Pier 2 wading pool is still on schedule to open in July, according to our source at the park. No exact date yet, but it’s a good start. Secondly, this week, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Board of Directors voted to approve a mixed-use development including residential and hotel units, restaurant and retail space, as well as a banquet hall and fitness center on Pier 1. Brought to you by Toll Brothers and Starwood, the 550,000 sq. ft. complex will house the 10-story, 1 Hotel with 200 rooms and 159 residential units. Ground-breaking is expected to begin in 2013.
As for more timely events, Saturday brings the Brooklyn Kite Festival at Pier 1 from 10am to 2pm. Kites will be available for purchase on site, or you can bring your own. The same day also finds the opening of Photoville, a mix of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on workshops, nighttime projections, a photo dog run, and a summer beer-garden at Pier 3 Uplands. In addition, THE FENCE at PHOTOVILLE will become a public photographic installation and outdoor photo gallery, celebrating the essence of “Community: Home/Street/People/Creatures/Play.” Photographers of all levels are invited to submit images that fit into the “Community” theme.

Carroll Gardens Gets the Big Diss from MIB III

By , 22 June, 2012, No Comment

Remember when Court St. was littered with vintage cars for the filming of Men in Black III? Well don’t look for familiar places if you plunk down the cash to see the film. According to the NY Times City Room, we got lost somewhere on the cutting room floor.

A few moments of footage shot at the north end of Court Street in Downtown Brooklyn, near Borough Hall, flash by in the film, but nothing, apparently, from Carroll Gardens itself.
The studio, Sony Pictures, would not answer questions about what was and was not in the movie.

Ah, well, I’m sure you can find the hood in one of the other billion or so movies, TV shows and commercials that have been shot in the last few years. Who needs time-traveling aliens anyhow.
