1. New York and Brooklyn from Michael_Novakhov (111 sites): Brooklyn Paper: Full articles: Second going: Hank’s Saloon to close again by mid-June

See this story at BrooklynPaper.com.

By Kevin Duggan

Brooklyn Paper

Hank’s for all the memories.

Hank’s Saloon will shut down for the second time after only five months at its Adams Street location, according to its owner.

The Downtown dive bar will close its doors on June 14 because the owners of Hill Country Food Park — the recently-shuttered food hall that houses the watering hole on its second floor near Willoughby Street — will hand over the building’s lease to a new operator, the storied saloon’s owner said on social media.

“After five amazing months and working our asses off non-stop, Hill Country told us a few days ago that someone else will be taking over their lease asap on the entire building on Adams Street, and that the people taking over don’t really have any interest in continuing to house Hank’s Saloon (they will transforming it into a different venue),” Julie Ipcar wrote on the troubled tavern’s Facebook page on May 25.

Hill Country’s owners Marc and Kristen Glosserman already closed the food hall on May 3, according to spokeswoman Leah Morgan, and the new operators will bring in eateries from “very well known hospitality brands” later this year, the company said in a separate statement.

“Hill Country Food Park has closed for the season to make way for some big changes,” the statement read. “While we have enjoyed stretching our culinary wings at Food Park, we have decided to focus on growing our other Hill Country restaurants and will be handing over the reins to a new operator, who will be curating a collection of exciting new food offerings from some very well-known hospitality brands planned for later this year. Details are being finalized, and more information regarding the new operator as well as our involvement will be coming soon.”

Hank’s Saloon took over a second floor nook of the space at the beginning of this year, after closing down its original century-old Boerum Hill location at the end of last year.

The honkey-tonk taproom had just started to rebuild a strong following over the past couple of months and hosted a number of live gigs on its stage despite a challenging environment, according to Ipcar’s post.

“In the short time we were on Adams Street, the bar did extremely well. We were rocking it with packed happy hours and fantastic nights of music, and had just started building a community in a neighborhood that we were told was going to be impossible to make work,” it read.

She thanked the bar’s staff for making their alehouse in America’s Downtown reminiscent of their original digs and added that she hopes to get lucky again with a new location.

“I’m gonna say goodbye for now, but hopefully we will be lucky one more time and find somewhere else so we can continue what we started. NYC you get me down, but I’m not over you yet,” her post read.

1. New York and Brooklyn from Michael_Novakhov (111 sites): Brooklyn Eagle: This Brooklyn farmhouse is the oldest building in New York

The first time you see a Dutch farmhouse in a Brooklyn neighborhood, you might think you’re hallucinating.

What are these magical houses doing in this ever-changing, development-obsessed borough? They look like illustrations in a history book, with a modern modification here and there.

One of Brooklyn’s Dutch farmhouses was built in the 1600s and is the oldest building in New York State. Others were constructed in the 18th century.

Their continued existence is a miracle.

Some of them belong to private owners. Others belong to the city of New York and are open to the public, or will be when ongoing renovations are completed.

These are my favorites, starting with the oldest.

Pieter Claesen Wyckoff House in East Flatbush

This is the oldest building in New York State.

Part of Pieter Claesen Wyckoff House was constructed before 1641, according to its city Landmarks Designation report.

It’s at 5816 Clarendon Road in East Flatbush. Various developers owned the property in the early decades of the 20th century. Fortunately, none of them tore it down.

Descendants of the Wyckoff family, who sold it in 1901, bought it again in 1961 and gave it to the city.

The brown shingle-and-clapboard house is a museum that’s open a couple days a week and has a full schedule of events and activities.

Hendrick I. Lott House in Marine Park

Part of Hendrick I. Lott House was constructed by 1720. It was incorporated into a larger house built in 1800.

The house at 1940 East 36th St. in Marine Park is landmarked. The city owns the house, having purchased it from the Lott family in 2002 for $725,000, city Finance Department records indicate.

The striking white farmhouse has been undergoing a multi-year restoration. It will be open to the public in the future when the renovation work is done.

Friends of the Lott House is a nonprofit devoted to preserving, restoring and operating the property.

Stoothoff-Baxter-Kouwenhoven House in Flatlands

Stoothoff-Baxter-Kouwenhoven House is a lovable Dutch farmhouse. Part of it was built around 1747.

Ken Friedlander bought the landmarked house at 1640 East 48th St. in Flatlands for $280,000 in 1994, he told me when I interviewed him in 2014.

In that interview, Friedlander said the first year he lived in the house, he’d wake up early and smell sizzling bacon — as though breakfast were being cooked for farm workers from centuries past.

Wyckoff-Bennett Homestead in Madison

Hessian officers lived at Wyckoff-Bennett Homestead during the Revolutionary War. And soldiers pitched their tents outside.

The late Stuart Mont shared the remarkable history of his landmarked farmhouse when I interviewed him in 2014. At that time, he said being responsible for a house that had seen so much history was “like owning the Brooklyn Bridge.”

The white farmhouse, which was constructed around 1766, is located at 1669 East 22nd St. in the neighborhood called Madison. It belongs to the Stuart Mont Revocable Trust with Randi Mont and Ira Mont as trustees, Finance Department records show.

Stuart Mont and his late wife Annette had bought it for $160,000 in 1983 from the estate of Gertrude Ryder Bennett Williams.

Stuart Mont died in 2016.

Lefferts Historic House in Prospect Park

For the first 130-plus years of its existence, Lefferts Historic House was located six blocks away from Prospect Park.

Then in 1917, John Lefferts’ estate gave the home to the city on the condition that it be moved to a city property.

That’s how a Dutch farmhouse built between 1777 and 1783 wound up in the Children’s Corner of the park, serving as a museum.

This house replaced a farmhouse the Lefferts had owned, which Colonial troops burned down before the Battle of Brooklyn in 1776. The soldiers wanted to keep it out of British hands.

Joost Van Nuyse House in Flatlands

Joost Van Nuyse is probably the person who had this house built in 1793 and 1794.

This Dutch Colonial farmhouse is at 1128 East 34th St. in Flatlands. It is landmarked and charming.

Joost Van Nuyse House is also called Van Nuyse-Coe House because a man named Ditmas Coe rented it in 1852.

According to Finance Department records, it now belongs to David Katzman and Antoinette Byam.

Jay-Z is now hip-hop’s first billionaire, according to Forbes  CNBC

Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter can officially add “billionaire” to his growing list of titles. According to Forbes, the Brooklyn-born artist-turned-entrepreneur’s business empire is now worth $1 billion, making him “one of only a handful of entertainers to become a billionaire — and the first hip-hop artist to do so.” In 1996, Jay-Z became a household name when he released his debut album, “Reasonable Doubt,” on his independent label, Roc-A-Fella Records. Since then, the 49-year-old — who has rapped about his unconventional rise from Brooklyn street corners to corporate boardrooms — has continued to …

A few years ago, many news stories announced that “kelp is the new kale.” That the global seaweed harvest is worth more than lemons and limes. That it’s the “next great food craze,” and that it will be “everywhere by the next decade.” Where are we now? Kelp is a type of seaweed that grows in large underwater forests, and looks a little like green lasagna noodles with curly edges. Seaweed farming has a lot going for it: It doesn’t require any fertilizer, can actually be used as fertilizer, helps fight climate change, and cleans up ocean water by taking in nitrogen compounds. It’s also a nutr…
