11 Too Many Clarinets

Hello from the other side!

After a quick break, we're back with an episode that is basically a Thanksgiving centerpiece cornucopia of content.

In the news: a report from the New York City Department of Health reveals that Brooklyn Heights residents are not as pristine as you might think, a beloved Montague Street landmark will find a new home on the promenade, probs, and the proposed condo-library Frankenstein is one step closer to becoming a reality.

Over in the book corner, we discuss a collection of previously unpublished, mid-century photos of the neighborhood displayed in Brooklyn: A Personal Memoir, with the Lost Photos of David Attie. Not to spoil it for you, but there was not a Subway sandwich shop in sight.

And our Craigslist item of the week has us wondering, how many clarinets are too many clarinets??
