Hi there readers. I have good news and bad. The good news is that today’s story is really interesting, and Joshua Kristal’s photos are tremendous. I think you will enjoy the piece, as it provides an exclusive window into the world of our Italian neighbors, the people who made South Brooklyn what it is today, people and institutions that we pass on the street and so often do not converse with. There’s a pitched battle going on, and a new development… not to mention the fascinating history.
The bad new is, the story will not be ready for publication at 10 a.m. We will publish at 1:30 p.m., just in time for some after-lunch reading.
Hope to see you back here at 1:30 p.m.
