The missed story in this funny piece that includes Gersh enjoying a plastic-wrapped Lassen & Hennigs B&W: Lassen & Hennigs once again proved its disconnect from the community by closing early on Saturday and staying closed on Sunday. This morning, Montague St is filled with people desperate to find coffee and a Sunday Times — the merchants who opened (incl Happy Days, the candy store next door, and the deli at Hicks Street) deserve Extra Credit. [A few others were also open Saturday night — Tanda Asian Bistro, Armandos and Lichee Nut.] Eamonns was crowded Saturday night (open late! serving food! filled with karaoke-singing OEM employees!). Three cheers to Eamonns; pie in the face to Lassen & Hennigs

What is the condition of the Gowanus Canal after the storm.
Did it overflow? Is it stinking up the neighborhood?
Is DEP doing anything?
I am an artist. Can I go to my studio on the banks of the Gowanus and paint?

Great reporting! Idiots! If you can't at least try to report maybe you should quit your day job.

I was expecting legitimate news coverage. If you want readers this isn't the way to do it.
