The mad egg-tosser who lives in the Novo has once again lashed out at the dog run underneath the 4th Avenue condo. A few nights ago, a woman says she brought her dog to the run so he could do his evening business and someone chucked an egg down at her from the condo. On the one hand: As in the incident four weeks ago, the dog and owner were in the run in the evening, when it’s supposed to be closed. On the other: The woman says her dog wasn’t making noise, and that she’s been taking him to the run at night since it opened more than a year ago. Questions abound among the run’s users. Is the egger perhaps a teenager, or just a crazy person? Do most of the Novo’s residents feel enmity towards the dog run? When will peace be restored in the Slope???

This long-shuttered commercial space on the corner of Saratoga and MacDonough was being renovated when we passed by recently. Through the window at 83 Saratoga we saw a big room with a sanded wood floor and doors to two bathrooms. In 2012, a permit was filed for minor alterations to the interior. The building, located […]
This mid-19th century Italianate in Prospect Heights makes up in width (24 feet across) what it lacks in depth (40 28 feet). The double duplex is nicely renovated and has lots of cute old details, including arched entry doors, floors, marble mantels, a wood burning fireplace, tin ceilings and wedding cake plaster decorations. We’re guessing […]
