Good morning, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill
Although we might be able to avoid a heavy soaking today, expect to see some scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. So be sure to keep that umbrella close. If you do go out, don’t forget to grab a few photos and submit them to The Nabe’s Flickr group.
Here’s more local news to get you going:
- Still looking for a children’s summer camp in Brooklyn? A new one in the nabe called Camp Fort Greene is taking applications right now.
