Happy Anniversary - to us!!!!!

One year ago, on May 19th, 2008, we started this blog as a way to get involved in the community and fill what we found to be a void in blogging in the neighborhood. While many blogs occasionally touched on the slice of Brooklyn we call home, none were entirely dedicated to it or took a look at it from a non-business standpoint.

Now, one year and many posts later, we're proud to say that we've met a lot of great people, learned a lot, and had a lot of fun. We're also glad that we've been able to get involved in addressing local issues, organize events for families and children, and support local businesses and artists. We hope that we've enabled other local residents to do all of the above as well.

Whether you've been reading since the beginning or just recently discovered us, we appreciate you taking the time to both read what we have to say and to take interest in our community. Keep checking back in!

Special thanks to anyone who's ever given us their time, input, and ideas, or helped spread the word about us, including local residents, businesses, local organizations, artists, fellow bloggers, and of course anyone that reads and comments!

We're also proud to say that we've been nominated as one of the best local blogs by Nickelodeon's Go City Kids website. If you feel like lending us a hand, head over to this link and vote for us (up to once a day).
