Soule Restaurant: The Buzz

After inflating rent, Brooklyn landlords find storefront empty during sour economic times… The windows of more than 20 Clinton Hill small businesses were painted, stained and decorated last week by Brooklyn artists competing to become the Monet of Myrtle Ave… Legions of overjoyed Yankee fans were reporting similar symptoms - and coming up with all kinds of excuses - so they could be at the Bronx Bombers World Series victory parade… Mayor Bloomberg may have squeaked out a third term across the city - but if it was up to Brooklyn voters he would have been tossed out… 120 years ago this month, the last hanging in New York State took place at Raymond Street Jail, the turreted palace of punishment on what is now Ashland Place near Willoughby Street… Brown Memorial Baptist Church is holding a Gala fund raiser for restoration work of its 1860 early-Romanesque revival building, constructed in 1860. Councilwoman Letitia James will be guest speaker… Chanukah festivities and public Menorah lightings in Fort Greene and Clinton hill for more info or for a free menorah or candles email or call 718-974-9472… Join Melanie Levander for a gingerbread house workshop!
