Last night, at the first-ever “Cortelyou at Twilight” fall celebration, sponsored by the Flatbush Development Corp, stores along Cortelyou Road between 17th Street and Coney Island Avenue stayed open late and offered discounts. Restaurants served complimentary snacks--roasted cauliflower with sweet-pickled onions at Farm on Adderley, punchim chocolate balls at Mimi’s Hummus and creamed mushroom crostini at The Castello Plan were highlights-- and the residents of Ditmas Park, which feels like the most diverse small town you’ve ever been to, came out out to wander and enjoy their neighborhood.
Proceeds from each $20 ticket benefited PS 139 and PS 217 and their Garden to Café programs, which serve and teach kids about locally-grown food."
