Good morning, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.

While we saw that lots of you made it out to Fort Greene Park for some Memorial Day fun, others stayed close to home to enjoy the long weekend. No matter what you ended up doing, share some of your photos from the weekend in The Nabe’s Flickr photo pool.

  • Do you have dreams of becoming a member of Community Board 2, but you don’t know where to begin? Renee Collymore, Female District Leader of the 57th Assembly District, is holding a forum on the role of community boards and how to get involved at Teen Challenge on May 29 from 7 to 9 p.m. If you’ve got questions, come to have some refreshments and get your answers.
  • CitiBike sharing stations opened up yesterday to annual members. If you strolled down Classon Avenue you may have seen something that stuck out from the sea of blue bikes – a rusty two-wheeled sculpture, Gothamist reported. The piece of art was created by sculptor Jack Jano and placed in the station by Clinton Hill resident Alex Gruss, the blog reported. If you were one of the early adopters who were able to use one of the bikes, let us know what it was like in the comments below.
  • Since the end of the Nets’ first season in Brooklyn, quite a few media outlets have attempted to deconstruct the fan base, according to the Atlantic Yards Report. While the majority of fans watching games don’t seem to be from Brooklyn, the blog questioned assertions that failed promises from Forest City Ratner are the reason some Brooklynites aren’t committing to the team.
