I tweeted about this event earlier (follow me on Twitter here). Sometimes I don't get a chance to write posts on this blog on issues relating to the neighborhood in a timely manner, but if it's a matter of importance, I will at least try to tweet. See the sidebar of this blog for my Twitter feed.

Check my previous post and this comprehensive story (here) from the South Brooklyn Post for more details regarding the helicopter issue.

  1. I wish I had known about this rally. The helicopter problem started years ago for the Upper West Side but now is INSANE!! Today has to be a record for traffic up and down the Hudson river. Pray for rain!

    Choppers go up the West Side one after another often turning at ridiculous angles - thrills equals better tips for pilot, right?

    Why is this allowed?
