What’s new on the blog:

Did you miss Monday’s Neighborhood Council meeting? You’re in luck. Here’s the video.
NEWNC supported five neighborhood requests, including a new Tony DeMarco statue on Hanover and Cross Streets. Applications by “Pauli‘s” on Salem St., “The Wine Bottega” on Hanover St. also received supportive votes.

Columnist Karen Cord Taylor weighs in on the exploitation of 9/11 in her weekly column.

What people are talking about:

We followed up on the remnants of moving week, including expired street occupancy permits. See the slideshow.

There are still lots of questions surrounding last week’s fire on Cooper Street. We posted the latest police blotter that also identifies a drug arrest a few hours earlier on Cooper Street along with all other reported crime incidents.

Neighborhood Video of the Day:

It’s 9/11 and we recall the plaque presented on last year’s 10th Anniversary to the Hanover Street Fire Station by the Santa Rosalia Society in this video. I thought it was an interesting mix of old neighborhood tradition with new realities.
