The Brooklyn Dragon Racing Club

We’re back for a new year! To kick things off, we’re delving into the history of racing dragons in Bay Ridge… fictionally, at least. Our guest is local author Katharine Dow, author of the short story The Brooklyn Dragon Racing Club, set right here in Bay Ridge. We’ll chat with Katharine about the story and its influences. Katherine will discuss how her recent move to the neighborhood (in the middle of the pandemic!) influenced how she’s grown to understand Bay Ridge. Along the way we’ll also discuss good hangouts for writers in the neighborhood, and more!

Learn what “The Hole” is! Find out what restaurant has the most attractive servers! Does Bay Ridge have a travelator? And where can you find the local waterfall? Have you seen the parrot man? Tune in and find out the answers as we geek out about Bay Ridge, our nation’s capitol.

Give Us Shelter

Over 120 of our neighbors are homeless and in city shelters at any given time. But we have zero shelter beds in our neighborhood to help them. We are not doing our fair share. But we have a plan, and a petition, to change that. Join us for a 40 year history of NIMBY tactics and hyper-local stats as we explore what it would take to provide shelter in Bay Ridge
