Happy Hour Wednesday & MORE!

The dogs days of summer are giving us one last heat wave, so cool off with a drink at the next Cobble Hill Association Happy Hour, Wednesday September 1st at Watty & Meg.  $3 beers, $5 glasses of wine from 6-9pm. Come with the friends you already know & strike up a conversation with the neighbors you meet for the first time!

Need some neighborhood news to fuel those conversations?
- CHA President Roy Sloane may have come up with an ideal solution to the BQE reconstruction that will eventually reduce excess traffic on our local streets! Read more.

- Notice the construction at the PS 29 School Yard? Big improvements are on the way, and pictures can be seen here.

- Got old computers and tv's to recycle, but missed the last CHA e-waste event? Not to fear... in just a few weeks there's be two more Electronics Recycling Events just a few blocks away, courtesy of our friends at the Lower East Side Ecology Center. Get all the details right here.

- Miss the old Cafe on Clinton by Cobble Hill Park? Well this Friday it's set to re-open as a brand new place called Breukelen. Read more.

- Had a dangerous ride on the new bike path between Pier 1 and Pier 6 of Brooklyn Bridge Park? You're not the only one worried to use that path! Read about it here.

Perhaps when we have the Happy Hour tonight at Watty and Megs, we can notice the four beautiful exterior mounted AC units bolted to their Kane St. facade in the historic Cobble Hill District. Landmark's approval? Permits? CHA, please find out what happened here. They are UGLY!

Cobble Hill Association, have you looked into whether Watty and Meg filed with the Landmarks Commission and received permission to mount their AC units to the Kane Street facade in a landmark district? So there is no misconception, these are not window units but AC compressors bolted permanently into the wall with power wiring and refrigerant piping leading from them. This is a very dangerous precedent to allow these units, which are becoming more common, to be installed on street facades in an historic district. We urge the CHA to become involved in this issue. We await your response.
