JOHN LEGEND HAS SOMETHING TO SAY ON JULY 21st 2008
The 26th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series performances are held Monday nights 7:30 pm at Wingate Field entrances on Brooklyn Avenue (Rutland Roa an Winthrop Street.)
John Legend is a five-time Grammy-winner and multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and performer whose albums -- "Get Lifted" and "Once Again" -- and singles -- including "Ordinary People," "Used To Love U," "Save Room," and "Heaven" -- have secured his place as one of the most striking, vital and important American musical artists to emerge in the 21st century.
Legend -- who'd made his name primarily as an in-demand all-star studio session writer and musician whose credits included work with Lauryn Hill, Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys, Common and Kanye West among others -- stepped into the solo spotlight in 2004 as the first artist signed to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music production company and was signed to Columbia Records in May of that year.
GRAND OPENING FARMERS MARKET starting this Friday July 18th, 12-6 pm on Malcolm X Blvd between Marion & Chauncey Street. You will be able to buy veggies and fruits...for now - but, in the next week or so we will have fish vendors and bakers and hopefully fresh flowers will follow (that would be great!). This is our chance to enhance our quality of life in the food area for Stuyvesant Heights. Lets support our new farmers market...other communities do it all the time!!! Why go all the way to Park Slope, Court Street or Union Square when we have a market right here.
Everyone should buy at least 1 or 2 items every Friday, I will.
For more information, contact 718-363-3085.

DESIGNER FIXTURES Kevin Reid is renting a two-bedroom in the Mynt in Bedford-Stuyvesant. He decorated his living/dining area with a wraparound couch and sleek kitchen stools.
WHILE condominium developers across the country are trying to unload thousands of apartments that they can’t sell, some builders in Brooklyn have found the real estate equivalent of a golden parachute. Having turned their new units into high-priced rentals, they have found a surprising number of eager takers.
Kevin Reid, who is renting a two-bedroom in the Mynt at 756 Myrtle Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, is a perfect example. His 72-unit building was originally planned as condominiums, but the developer converted it into rentals and kept the appliances and fixtures meant for buyers.
Mr. Reid pays $2,550 a month for perks like views of the Empire State Building and a deep Kohler bathtub that reminds him of tubs in a luxury hotel room. The brokerage firm Aptsandlofts.com has rented all but five units. A similar unit in Manhattan would rent for an average of $6,853, according to Citi Habitats.
Mr. Reid, 30, an event planner, decorated his living/dining area with a white wraparound couch and sleek kitchen stools. He and his friends, he said, had no interest in living in brownstones or older Brooklyn properties. When he eventually buys in Brooklyn, he wants a condo like his current rental.
“My peers who have their M.B.A.’s and their new master’s degrees and new jobs, they’re looking for new condos; they’re not into the traditional houses or brownstones,” he said. “This is the lifestyle we like. You cannot put a fitness center in a brownstone. You don’t have a doorman in a brownstone.”
The taste preferences of these new renters worry some longtime Brooklyn residents who wonder how the borough will change if these renters, who are not seeking Brooklyn’s characteristic tight-knit neighborhood feel, decide to stay and buy.
Thursday, July 17th at 7:00 p.m. the New York Restoration Project will be holding a meeting in the community garden located on Bedford Avenue between Willoughby and Dekalb Avenues. At this meeting you will get a chance to hear from representatives from NYRP, learn about garden membership and help plan events. This meeting is open to all.
For more information call Angela at 212.333.2552 or email email@example.com.
