Save The Date For My Brooklyn Report

I am always looking for more information on real estate in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

While reading I noticed that they will be publishing an ebook on buying foreclosure short sales in Brooklyn.

The release date is March 15th 2011 and will only be available for download for 72 hours. Get more details on it here.

I am really hoping this ebook will be full of down to earth information that the average person can put to use in this current economy that is full of opportunities.

Check back on the 15 to share your thoughts on the report.

Speak Up About The Darkness

Mikostreet has expressed concerns about no lights in Fulton Park. A couple of weeks ago, I sent a post about the lights in Fulton Park being out for since early December. As of last night, they are still out. I’ve called 311 for an update and was told there is no electrical current in the park and ConEd would repair it within 30 days of December 16. I was then referred to ConEd to check the status of the repair with a stop tag number. ConEd has no record of the stop tag number I was given. I put in another repair request directly with ConEd (someone will be out to check within 2 weeks). I also called Councilman Al Vann’s office. Please call 311, ConEd- 800.752.6633, Al Vann- 718-919-0740 Lets get involved and do our part to keep Bed-Stuy safe.
