On Friday, the Alliance for Coney Island launched a relief effort and web site, #ConeyRecovers, to serve as a central info hub for people in the area to learn about where they can get assistance. In addition, New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana will visit Coney Island on Tuesday to help out by serving lunch at Our Lady of Solace and Coney Island Gospel Assembly. “This week across Brooklyn we’ve seen the true value of people power in times of need,” said Marilyn Gelber, Brooklyn Community Foundation President, in a statement. “Without electricity and basic resources, our waterfront communities have still managed to come together quickly and creatively to provide emergency response and organize local recovery efforts. In Coney Island — where the need is so great — we’re inspired and grateful for the actions led by the Alliance for Coney Island and applaud their effort to build greater unity and strength through the Coney Island Recovery Fund.” The Alliance for Coney Island is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving Coney Island and the surrounding community.

OK, it’s really narrow and there are a lot of down lights but this Greenwood Heights house at 396A 19th Street looks pretty cute to us. Goes to show what some great rugs and Timorous Beasties wallpaper can do, right? That bath looks pretty slick, and we also like the new unpainted clapboard exterior. We’re not so […]
