EVENTS: This Friday, the idyllic pedestrian plaza and street bazaar known as Summer Stroll on Third Avenue is coming back to Bay Ridge for its second year running.
NEWS: Community Board 10 holds its general meeting tonight at the Knights of Columbus. And oh, my – have they got quite a line-up planned for tonight. The public hearing on the Capital and Expense Priorities for fiscal Year 2014 – to be promptly overridden by Mayor Bloomberg. Club Cats LLC explained to the Police/Safety subcommittee that they’re totally not at all like the Amnesia dance club, even if they’re still using the same SLA license. Plus, the Summer Stroll returns (as Summer Streets).
The accompanying image, which comes courtesy of talented local photographer David Tan, shows two bagpipers who managed to score a gig at the Summer Stroll on Third Avenue.
It was taken on July 27, 2012 using a Canon A-1 with Kodak Ekatr 100 film.

BAY RIDGE, EVENTS: On Monday night, Community Board 10 will meet at Knights of Columbus (1305 86th Street). Among the topics for discussion will be the Third Avenue Summer Stroll program and the cabaret license application for Amnesia nightclub. The Police & Public Safety committee voted last week against recommending a cabaret license for Amnesia. However, even if the full board follows suit, the final determination is made by the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs, which is not obligated to follow the recommendation of the Community Board.
