WALKING ACROSS THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE IN JANUARY. Being a holiday, MLK Day, there were 100’s of walkers on the bridge. Walked from Fulton Street Transportation Center in Lower Manhattan, up Broadway, across the bridge then on to Junior’s, a legendary Brooklyn restaurant famous for overstuffed deli sandwiches and cheese cake. Total walk 2.5 miles (4 KM). Photos from bridge with new World Trade Center in background and from Lower Manhattan along East River. I walk across the bridge every few months as I did 50 years ago from our apartment in Brooklyn Heights to work near Wall Street. Want to join me next walk.

Aug 22, 1776: Redcoats land at Long Island Minuteman Militia On this day in 1776, the British arrive at Long Island, between Gravesend and New Utrecht, with "near twenty four thousand men ready to land in a moment," according to one observer. General William Howe's large army came to Long Island hoping to capture New York City and gain control of the Hudson River, a victory that would divide the rebellious colonies in half. Five days later, on August 27, the Redcoats marched against the Patriot position at Brooklyn Heights, overcoming the Americans at Gowanus Pass and then outflanking the entire Continental Army. The Americans suffered 1,000 casualties to the British loss of only 400 men during the fighting. Howe chose not to follow the advice of his subordinates, however, and did not storm the Patriot redoubts at Brooklyn Heights, where he could have taken the Patriots' military leadership prisoner and ended the rebellion. General Washington ordered a retreat to Manhattan by boat. The British could easil ...
This weekend marks the anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn. In June 1776, General George Washington moved his troops to New York Harbor, in anticipation of a British attack. Finally, after months of anticipation, British forces landed on Long Island on August 22nd. Five days later, the British attacked American positions at Brooklyn Heights and the Heights of Guan (roughly today’s Prospect Heights). Although vastly outnumbered, the Americans managed to hold of the British, and the remainder of the army retreated to Brooklyn Heights. The August 27th Battle of Brooklyn was the first major battle of the American Revolution fought after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. On the night of August 29-30th, Washington executed a brilliant evacuation plan, moving his entire army to Manhattan without the loss of a single life. The Americans were eventually driven out of New York, and the British maintained control of the harbor throughout the war. Interested in learning more about Brooklyn's ...

A happy shavuot to all. Oy, Just Think of the Shavuot Celebrations! Late one night, many years ago in a tiny shteitel shul, the rebbe was sitting alone and bemoaning the fate of the Jewish people: the young people were not keeping the traditions, there was increasing intermarriage, it looked to him like the Jewish people would soon be extinct. All of a sudden the Baal Shem Tov appeared to him. "Do not be concerned about our people, my son; the future of our people is secure—I will show you this." With that, the B"ST whisked the rebbe through time and space to modern-day Brooklyn Heights. Walking down the streets on a crisp December night, the rebbe marveled at the holiday lights, the Chanukkiot displayed everywhere, the giant dreidles on almost every corner, and the decorations in each and every household's windows. Finally the rebbe sighed and said, "Ah, I am indeed comforted by such sights. Oy, if they do such things for Chanukah, I can only imagine all the things they must do for Shavuot!" Only if th ...

The 2014 AoBFF is a wrap, and it was very, very good. We stretched ourselves to the limit this year, expanding across Kings County from Brooklyn Heights to Clinton Hill to Bay Ridge to make good on our continuing mission to be the only film festival for the entire Borough. Our tireless squad of staff and volunteers rose to the challenge to make every screening a great experience for our filmmakers and audiences. This was a year of firsts for AoBFF. We ventured out of a traditional theater space to screen our “Film As Art” program of experimental shorts at Clinton Hill’s Corridor Gallery — to a standing-room only crowd. And we had our first-ever screenings in Bay Ridge in 2 venues: the Mary White Ovington school hosted 200 enthusiastic fans of our “Brooklyn Born & Raised” night, which celebrated home-grown talent.
