Two Links off The Gowanus Lounge to report this morning.
The first item, "Park Slope Snowflake Celebration Update," notes that many of Park Slope's retailers will be participating in the Brooklyn neighborhood's first Snowflake Celebration on the 13th (website here). Many will be open late and offer discounts just for this one event. The whole thing is organized by Buy in Brooklyn, who are also behind The Great Umbrella Experiment (Link 1; Link 2).
The second item is a "Bklink" subtitled "F Train Gets C's & D's." The line does just that, as reported on the 2nd Avenue Sagas blog.
