FILM, FRIENDS, AND A 27" TELEVISION

Bergen Street movie nights are over, not least because I've recently moved to Montlcair, NJ with my lovely girlfriend Jen. But the graphic's still kind of neat, I guess.

GORY DETAILS:

The idea behind two movies is not to force everybody to sit through a double feature, but to make it easier for all you weird-schedule New Yorkers to show up if/when convenient. Please feel free to pass this URL to anybody whom you think can be convinced to schlep out to Brooklyn.


Where am I, you ask? I'm here:

  Bergen and Hoyt Streets, Brooklyn
135 Bergen Street #3 (top buzzer)
 
  The easiest way to get there is:
 
Take the F train to the Bergen Street stop.
 
Walk to the "Bergen and Smith" exit [there are two different ways out of the station -- the other one is in the wrong direction].
 
Head east on Bergen Street [hint: the right direction has trees, and you'll quickly see a car service on the right side of the road. The wrong direction is very wide and goes uphill. ]
 
Hoyt street is the first intersection. Cross Hoyt, and I'm the first stoop on the left side of the street, top buzzer.

 
  If the F is bad for you, send me email & I can give you alternate directions.
