The Day: Meet the Candidates and Dining Alfresco

It was a cloudy weekend in the nabe. You’ll most likely see gray skies like these all week, locals. (Photo by Chris Dell)

Good morning, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.

It was a rainy end to the weekend and showers are expected to continue for the whole week, according to the National Weather Service. How did you spend the weekend, locals? Did you stay indoors, or did you brave the downpour and take a stroll outside?

We hope that you like The Nabe so far, locals. Just like at The Local, we encourage your contributions and story suggestions. Let us know in the comments what you think of our new site, and any ideas you have for our coverage.

  • Tonight you’ll have the chance to meet the candidates running for the 35th and 36th City Council districts, and for the Brooklyn District Attorney and Borough President seats. Stop by 525 Waverly Avenue between Fulton and Atlantic Avenues at 6:30 p.m. to hear what the candidates have to say about local issues, and to ask them questions. Although the event is free, you will need a ticket to enter. You can pick up tickets at Brown Memorial Baptist Church at 484 Washington Avenue between Fulton and Gates Avenues, by calling (347) 464-8850 or emailing
  • A formerly rundown townhouse at 434 Vanderbilt Avenue is now under construction, Brownstoner reported. Complimentary Colors Construction Corp, which is handling the construction, corrected the building’s four-inch lean, rebuilt the front with bricks approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission and reconstructed the front and rear pitched roofs.
  • The Village Voice blog, Fork in the Road, included the Brooklyn Sandwich Society, located at 184 DeKalb Avenue, in its listing of “underrated patios where you’ll actually be able to find a seat.” It opened in the fall of last year, so it wasn’t able to fully develop its patio at the time, according to the blog. The establishment now hosts gatherings on its patio each Tuesday night.
