Make Your Voice Heard With Our New Feature, Ditmas Park Perspective


Ditmas Park Streets: Rugby Road at Glenwood Road, winter, trees
One of our goals at Ditmas Park Corner is to represent a wide range of neighbors, interests, and experiences, and we’re inviting those who’d like to share their opinions, tips, and more to let us be their megaphone with our new feature column.

Ditmas Park Perspective is designed to present the story straight from the horse’s–or rather, the Ditmas Parker’s–mouth. Have a memory or some photos to share about the neighborhood in the old days? A tale of home renovations, or an idea to fix that pesky Cortelyou-Coney Island Avenue intersection? Some gardening lessons you’ve learned from your London Plane-shaded yard? What about a spooky experience in your old Victorian, or something kind a neighbor once did for you? Sheesh, why do you love your corner grocery store?

The possibilities are pretty limitless–even if you’d prefer to work with comics or photos instead of text, we’d just like to expand the number of views reflected on the site. You’re what makes this neighborhood, so whether you think housing around here is too expensive, want to share a holiday recipe, wish area businesses would diversify, or believe film shoots are great for the community, we want you to share your thoughts. Present a controversial argument or just recount your first impressions of the ‘hood–it’s up to you, and it’s in your words.
