A reader sent in this woeful tale of the downside of having a coveted stoop: “The Boerum Hill stoop pooper has struck. After getting stoop pooped twice last year, I have been struck again by the ‘Mad stoop pooper that poops at midnight!!! (or sometimes in the wee hours of the night).’ Last year I caught her in process twice, once on my stoop and once between some parked cars in the middle of the day. The latter time I called the police who arrested her. She is a mentally disabled black woman, a little heavy set, with dirty hair. I have a feeling that she was probably receiving the help she needed but was discharged and is back in the hood!!!! Granted I am just assuming it is her again but given that she uses her own toilet paper and some was left on my stoop. I would have to eliminate a random person that just HAD to go. Keep an eye out for her.” The reader is on Dean between Hoyt and Bond. Any other sightings?

Today’s HOTD is yet another apparently well maintained Bed Stuy beauty that has been in the same family for many years. We see original Lincrusta (or Anaglypta) in the entry hall, wood work with exuberant crown moldings that could perhaps be described as Egyptian, plaster medallions that recall the Neo-Grec, original doors, parquet, plaster cornices, […]
