Anne Hathaway is engaged to some Park Slope guy

Breaking news, fellow Park Slopians! Anne Hathaway is getting married! Apparently he’s a decent guy—quite a stretch from her last thieving bastard of an ex -- they’ve lived together in his Park Slope pad for a year and have already adopted a dog together. Totally fool proof.

According to Hathaway, via Sheknows.com, they’ve known each other since 2008 and hit it off back then, but never got together because they both thought the other had significant others. The fact that they both didn’t think to ask if they were spoken for gives them even more compatibility points!

Terrace Bagel Employee Effed: Pays for Health Inspection Aftermath Costs, No OT

Being a resident of Windsor Terrace for nigh-on 10 years, I find that few things make me excited in this hood (that's why I spend most of my time in Park Slope). But Terrace Bagels is one of those few things. I know most Windsor Terracians prefer Connecticut Muffin because they're nicer and the line isn't confusing, but I always liked my bagels with abuse. It's recently come to light that the owner of this Windsor Terrace mainstay may be abusing his employees. Or so says Michael Bergamaschi, the former Terrace Bagels employee who often served me my multi-grain bagel with low-fat veggie cream cheese.

Mr. Bergamaschi was allegedly fired because he complained to the TB owner about having his wages garnished to help foot Board of Health violations costs. That's right: when Terrace Bagels was given a B grade on it's inspection this September, it was also cited with 27 violations including such tasty things as evidence of mice and flies. The owners claimed that is was the employees fault and, according to Bergamaschi, took $25 out of the paychecks of all the counter workers and $50 from the kitchen workers to help cover the cost of the fine.

Who Gives A Shit: Is Your Hot New Baby Car seat Gonna Get Stolen?

This week in Brooklynian's forum, a parent-to-be posed a burning question that I am only mildly interested in because I was lacking a story for this slot: DO PEOPLE STEAL BABY CAR SEATS? I mean, we know that thieves are swiping our laptopsiPhones and puppies in this neighborhood. But are they breaking car windows to steal things regarding the safety of a baby? One woman, whose profile picture features a child smoking a cigarette, wonders just that:

Battle For Brooklyn Getting Close to the Oscars

Is our nabe headed to the Oscars? Maaaaybe. Battle For Brooklyn, a feature length documentary about the controversial Atlantic Yards project, is one of fourteen films currently in the running for an Oscar nomination. 

Husband and wife filmmaker team Suki Hawley and Michael Galinsky spent eight years carving over 500 hours of footage down into the feature length documentary, which has won numerous festival awards, including this year's Rooftop Films Summer Series Official Selection (you can read our FiPS review of the film HERE).
