Leopoldi Celebrates 50 Years on #theother5th

Walking into Leopoldi's Hardware, you can see it's chock full of everything you need, things you didn't even know existed and lots of things you didn't know you needed until you needed it!

This year the Leopoldi family are celebrating 50 years on #theother5th, serving and supporting the Park Slope community.

Joe Leopoldi bought the store back in 1966 and when he died, in 1989, the three sons took it over; Joe, Pete and Rob. You can see Joe and Pete with their mother, Flo in the photo below.

We hope you can come down to Leopoldi's on Saturday June 4th and celebrate with them. More details coming soon.

Amelia Robinson releases solo album

You might know Amelia Robinson as Mil's Trills, a very successful kids music band from right here in Park Slope. But like many musicians, Amelia wasn't satisfied with creating music in just one genre. She recently released her first solo album called "The Space Between" and a video for the first single "Don't You Worry" (filmed entirely on a GoPro)  is featured on Vimeo. Check it out!

Amelia is a fantastic musician and a wonderful, active Board Member of the Park Slope Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District.
