'What Would Bob Say ?' -- Remembering Bob Guskind

Phil DePaolo, community activist in Williamsburg sent CORD (Carroll Gardens Coalitions for Respectful Development) a letter reminding us that that one year ago Bob Guskind, passionate Brooklyn community activist and author of the Gowanus Lounge blog, died.

DePaolo's letter -- "What Would Bob Say?" -- is a moving memorial to the mark that Bob left on Brooklyn. He writes about what Bob would be proud of today ("he would be thrilled and very proud of the residents of Gowanus who won a Superfund designation yesterday over the objections of the Mayor") and what would piss him off  (what happened at Atlantic Yards).

Read the letter here (you'll have to scroll down a bit to see it.)
