I had to leave before the meeting ended due to illness, but last Wednesday was the final planning meeting of Imagine Flatbush 2030, hosted by the Municipal Art Society of NY and the Flatbush Development Corp. Establishing measurable goals and tracking methods for Flatbush’s present & future sustainability was the intended task. This is just a beginning, but a hopeful sign that this community has committed member who will work hard at making Flatbush a place where many talented young and mature people, of all walks of life, will want to stay.

This was across the street from where we had the Fading Ad Gallery for a brief time on Myrtle and Bedford. They removed the awning and exposed this storefront lounge. I believe it is a kosher butcher now.

I found this entry on Ebay for a Gretsch guitar case:

This is a Gretsch guitar case from the 50’s -early 60’s. It for a flat top guitar. The badge inside reads, “Ess & Ess Mfg. Co., Quality Cases, Brooklyn, N.Y.”.
