    so glad to see the site back. i was perplexed for days, did a search and learned what happened to Bob via Miss Heather. i recently became hooked on this site, and am sorry i was not a regular early on. we live in a wonderful community, and probably have passed each other on the street, cafes, delis and subway stops… without knowing each other. but thru this site, we have become a small town and community, another reason to love Brooklyn.
    i saw a sidewalk couch today and thought of Bob, guess i always will!
    for those who have not seen the video tribute on nyshitty, Miss Heather has a wonderful tribute.
    peace and good thoughts to everyone.
