This site is mostly about the north Brooklyn neighborhoods of Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick (11211, 11249 and 11222), and about issues of development, land use, design and construction ongoing in these neighborhoods and elsewhere. Comments are always on for articles, off for linked items.

  1. Just wanted to point out that New Hampshire is a closed primary. The definition of a closed primary is the following, “Voters may vote in a party’s primary only if they are registered members of that party. Independents cannot participate”
    It is conceivable that there are people here in New York City and even Brooklyn that are not Democrats. Even more conceivable that this individual is going to vote republican and, thank God, make sure Giuliani does not get elected.
    Here’s a listing of all closed, semi-closed, and open primaries
