News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

“That’s the worst paint job I’ve ever seen! There was nothing wrong with the off white/beigeish color, it matched the Brooklyn Bridge perfectly. Who ever thought that boring blue color would look good should be fired.” — MICHAEL M.

“Gee whiz, I was really looking forward to an enormous sign on the top of the Furman/Columbia Heights buildings that would read, No Collusion. But I guess that’s never going to happen now…” — ANDREW PORTER

Re Stroll Bay Ridge’s ‘Blue Bloods’ street where Tom Selleck ‘lives’ (May 30)

“Good piece. I’ve long appreciated how neatly 82nd Street changes block by block as you go east from the water, from widely spaced mansions to densely packed six-family houses. The development on 82nd Street wasn’t planned like that, as one long superblock, but it accidentally worked out that way, which is very interesting.” — HENRY

Re Brooklyn Law School president and dean Nicholas Allard resigns (May 29)

“As a former student and postgrad fellow at Brooklyn Law, I look forward to one day learning the real reasons for Dean Allard’s abrupt termination from the law school.” — RACHEL RUSSELL

Re Brooklyn tradition turns 70, SING celebrates a milestone year (Feb. 22, 2017)

“Loved this story! Being part of Wingate’s ‘Sing’ (’66-’70) was some of the best years of my life! I was part of a writing team, a dance team and other roles. Wish I could recall those quirky details. My classmates recall bits and pieces! Thank you for this great article and wonderful memories!” — SYLVIA LEWIS
