It has stood on the northeast corner of Ovington and Fourth Avenues for a long time. I went to a wedding there once.
A scene from an awful movie called The Guru , was filmed here. I saw the production trailers parked on 69th St.
Marisa Tomei was in the movie, Malachy McCourt played the role of a priest conducting the ceremony. This movie came and went so fast in 2003, I'm not sure anyone ever saw it.
Bethlehem Church has a website

Now, well over seven years have passed, and...there's not a lot to bayridge.com.
- an event calendar that does have some school information on it.
- A Guestbook which seems to be populated by a lot of people who moved to Jersey years ago and who write in to say that they remember the Alpine Theater
- a This Day in History thing that tells me that Oklahoma became a state 47 years ago
- Click onto news, news, news, and you see...nothing
- There are ten old pictures of the neighborhood, which are ok.
That's it? That's it.
Bayridge.com I believe is connected to the Home Reporter newspaper. This newspaper, though small, has some resources and should be able to put out a better website than this. Bay Ridge is a good neighborhood, and it deserves a better website than bayridge.com Even this stinking web site is better!!

Might have to go on a reconaissance mission this weekend. John's comments are in sync with this map on the Brooklyn Parrots website
It's supposed to rain later tonight, but at 730 pm, it was gorgeous. There was a full moon over Bay Ridge. You don't notice the brightness so much when out on the street, but in the backyard, away from the streetlights, you still notice the beautiful white moonlight.
I read where in Rome, there are plans to lower the intensity of the streetlights so as to reduce light pollution. So that people can see the sky once more. Brava, Roma.

Not too long ago, Scruffy Murphy's on Fourth Avenue, just off 69th Street, was a popular place, with live bands a couple of nights a week.
Over two years ago, it closed for renovations, and I think, so owner Sean could spend some time back in Ireland. It was supposed to reopen in 2004. Now, 2005 is nearly over and there is no sign of life in Scruffy's, nor in the two apartments above it.
We miss Scruffy Murphy's, who was a good neighbor. Bring it back!
