This news from the blog Sheepshead Bites: Local Council Member Michael Nelson is working closely with City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, the Office of Emergency Management and Con Edison to expedite restoration of power to the neighborhood — but he’s also looking for residents to help out as well.

Dunkin’ Donuts is everywhere, and soon that will include Clinton Hill at the corner of Myrtle and Grand. It’ll be interesting to see how they make over this spot, which is located at 513 Myrtle Avenue. Thanks to a tipster for sending in the photo. GMAP
