[WHAT YOU SHOULD ORDER AT...] Jpan Sushi

WHAT YOU SHOULD ORDER AT... is a recurring column designed in kind for your opinionated asses and our lazy asses.  We're going to pick one Park Slope resto a week and recommend our favorite dish at each.  Are we right?  Are we wrong?  YOU KNOW YOU WANNA WEIGH IN.  

Ah, New York City: the land of sushi (so THAT's what smells).  I'm not going to say that Jpan has the best sushi in the whole entire city, but it's definitely some of the best sushi in the neighborhood, so maybe that's why it feels like I have to take out a second mortgage every time I order from there.

See what I did there?  It's FUNNY because I could never ever own an apartment in this neighborhood unless I killed a wealthy dowager and stole all of her money.  Why haven't I killed a wealthy dowager yet, you ask?  When am I going to step up and take control of my life, you want to know?  BECAUSE: I'm still a little unclear as to what a "dowager" actually is.

Brooklyn to Get It's Own High Line? On the Gowanus Canal?

Gothamist's Lowline/High Line mash-up, using photos by and Jason Kuffer and MattronOk:

a. BWHAHHHHAAAHHHHAAA! But,

b. How fucking cool would that be???

So, after the Gowanus canal gets de-dead bodied, de-diseased, and de-bacterial infection'd during it's "clean up," there's an architectural competition afoot that aims to turn that mofo into Brooklyn's own version of the High Line! Only they're calling it the "lowline!"
