9th avenue’s own, Tommy Ryan took a fall yesterday while working on the Verrazano.

Click the link for the story via the Daily News.

The worker was on the Brooklyn side of the bridge when he fell around 12 p.m. and landed on a beam on the lower deck. Emergency Services Units had to cut through a fence to get to him. They then hooked him to a rope to bring him to safety.

Get well soon my friend.

Received sad news over the weekend. Here’s the notice from Glenn Thomas via Facebook:

Unfortunately we lost another one of our Holy Name of Jesus school alums.

My fellow neighbor and friend growing up on #22 Sherman Street Michael Woodworth passed away at the age of 58.

“Woody” as almost everyone who knew him was a one of a kind character. Many of us have a few “Woody Stories” to tell and laugh about. He could have been a comedic actor if he chose that profession for he was that talented.  I always loved seeing him when he was visiting in the neighborhood. May he rest in peace. My condolences to his family.

RIP Woody…

My mother, Carol Corbett passed away a few years ago…

She was a wonderful grandmother to my daughter Taylor.

Carol Corbett

If your mom is still alive, tell her you love her every day.

I wish I can tell Carol one more time that I love her…

Happy Mother’s Day mom.

I love you…

Your son,

My guy Pat Fenton with a tremendous piece on his brother, “The Ice Cream Man.”


His drinking days were over now. They neared their end one night after he took a severe beating when someone followed him home and robbed him when he was drunk. When the eye swelling went down, he put on the last suit he owned and went looking for a job. He didn’t get it.

Be careful people…especially on Prospect Avenue between 9th and 10th.

Click on the story below and peep the video from the Bklyner.

A home security camera in Windsor Terrace captured video of a man trying to open a locked front door to a 3-family home on Prospect Avenue between 9th and 10th Avenues, just before midnight on Thursday, May 3.

On the video, the perp is spotted jimmying the door handle and peeking inside, before he discovers the camera and obscures himself from the lens. He is wearing a hoodie sweatshirt and a red baseball cap.

Stay safe…
