We are receiving reports that stations in Brooklyn are out of gas. “We drove from Park Slope to Coney Island last night and passed 20 stations that were all out of gas.

It’s hard to tell, but the cars in the right-hand lane and past the station, beyond, are waiting in line for gas.

This four-story brownstone at 789 Quincy Street has a nice amount of original detail, but looks like it could use a little polishing.
