    Heights Falafel, on Henry St, re-opened yesterday. Take-out and delivery only. The owner doesn’t know how to let people know, so I told him I would try to spread the word. So, here I am.

      Does anybody know what happened to The Row House gym at 55 Prospect Street? When did it close and why? Can you call or text me at 619-889-8400 please? Thank you.

    Hi my name is Zeridah Blunt and I’m also a descendant of Rem Jansen Van Der Beeck. I think this means we are cousins. My grandmother was Bertha Remsen and we are related down the same family tree it seems. I was born and raised in Brooklyn NY and lived across the street from the cemetery that he’s buried in when I was a kid. I would love to talk to you about this and hopefully get some more information from you about our family tree.
