Re: “Red Pearl

I used to love this store until they sold me two insects-damaged boxes.
They've always had a great selection of clothing, jewelry, gifts, etc and these two boxes were so cute.
However, three months after I purchased them, I noticed powder all around them.
I placed them on the top shelf of my bookshelves which is why I did not notice the powder before.
As I was not sure where this was coming from, I put the boxes in a plastic bag for a month. The powder was everywhere.
When I went to the the store to show them the boxes with the powder, not only they were rude but they did not even try to be professional by replacing them or giving a store credit.
I paid $100 each box.
I will NEVER go again to this store.

Re: “Beaner Bar

The people who work here are worse than hipsters--they're aging, entitled hipsters.

Re: “Boro Park OB/GYN

I specifically asked to NOT be told the sex of my child. Well, after asking them again to send the results of my genetic testing to my midwife (which I had previously given them paperwork for), they mailed me the results of my test - telling me the sex of my child.

Very unprofessional office; when I called to discuss this huge oversight, not one person called me back or even apologized. Jennifer Bilington at the Wburg location keeps it light and friendly, but the administrators are rude, unhelpful and clearly don't check their records to ensure the privacy of information.

Re: “Girl Painters Rock

Dear Jody,
(or should I just say Benny?)

As a former "employee" of your fake company I am just so glad to see that you guys are finally being driven out of business. You never finish jobs, or pay any of your workers. On the two days I worked Benny left me and two other painters alone to finish all the work without any training. One painter was a single mom paying a babysitter. Benny promised to meet us at his next job to pay us and then turned off his phone and disappeared.
I remember in our meetup interview to be hired Benny telling all of us this bullshit about how the company was different because they left clients cookies and flowers. Maybe you are the only client that ever saw Benny when he wasn't high out of his mind.

Asshole frat-boy mook hell. A cesspool of Neanderthal bridge-and-tunnel jerkoffs and their slutty-looking girlfriends. If you like shouting and vomit and stupid people, then by all means go.

Re: “Crossroads Trading Co.

comming to the store in brooklyn is the worst experience
i ever had. The thick scent of racism filled the air. I walked in and asked if they took hand designed tshirts . I was told they did.
as wispers and stairs came from behind the counter. i was told no and the guests that i had from swedan left the store in disgust .
I said thankyou and left . my wife and her swedish friends spends alot of money at this location. Thats why i went in the first place.
I sent the same shirts with my wife and no problem .It was tacky and ignorant . If i dont receive help from the main office about taking action with the store .I will expose this place on every blogg and chat as well as protest outside the store. this is an outrage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: “Beaner Bar

I find it offensive that anyone who is promoting Mexican culture would use the name Beaner in their title. The term is derogatory and is used often as a racial slur against Mexican people. Anyone who is racially aware should boycott this establishment.

Re: “Girl Painters Rock

I agree with the above reviews. They do not deliver what they promised. Their work leaves a lot to be desired. They become abusive over text messages. Do not hire them!!!! The girls complain that Benny owes them wages. And he asks you tip the girls. A tip? for what? They do not deserve a tip!!! They are not into this job!!

Re: “Redberi

The quality of the clothing and handbags is terrible at this store. I recently purchased a $200 bag that I ended up having issues with after only 2 days... I went back to the store to try to return and they wouldnt let me return it. I asked to speak to the owner and they said that she did not accept calls or emails.

Re: “Girl Painters Rock

Awful....Just a terrible person, did a terrible job, terrible businessman. This "Girl Painters Rock" is run by a man named Benny who likes to talk like he's the paint master, but his work sucks and he's just a terrible person. STAY AWAY!!!!! There are plenty of painters in the city, use somebody reliable!!!!!!

Re: “Girl Painters Rock

Benny Slay is the most horribly unprofessional person I have ever dealt with. I was away and the paint job was 2 days late, which he explicitly lied about, telling me it looked "perfect" when it was nowhere near being done! Caused my tenants to stay in a hotel which I have to pay for. Also took money for paint when it was already in the price. Cost me several hundred dollars out of pocket for his mistakes. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GUY!

Re: “Girl Painters Rock

The GUY who runs Girl Painters Rock, Benny Slay, is unprofessional, disorganized, and a complete conman...I've seen at least five girls he employed never get paid for their LONG hours or any hours for that matter...some are owed upwards of $1000. Benny is very likable and charismatic but I assure you he is a snake in the grass...if you deal with him long enough he WILL screw you over!

Re: “Sean

It is now Feb, 2011. I bought 3 shirts in June of 2010. The following email thread depicts Sean's business Practice succintly:


It has been six months now that you have been in receipt of my payment for three shirts. You had said you'd resolve it in October and I sent you a shirt that I had purchased from you several years ago as a size guide, but you didn't follow through. In fact you didn't even respond to my question regarding color choices at the time.

Stupidly perhaps I believed that you would, so you now have 4 shirts of mine.

I have to say that with the exception of a few incidents with fradulent vendors which I resolved in court, i have never had an experience like this.

This will be last email that I send in an attempt to resolve the problem in this manner. Please send me my money and my shirt.

Thank you.

Good Morning Mr. Norton,

We have a new cut of poplin shirts in. However, rather then sending you the shirts and they don't fit would you send me one of your shirts so I can measure it to insure I send you the proper size.

Please mail it to:

I'm writing with regards to the return of three XXL shirts that I bought over the phone from your soho store. They were beautiful.

When I bought these shirts I made clear that I had bought 8 or 10 shirts at your Boston store 3 or 4 years ago. I was told by [Mr.?] Rossen that I could return them if they didn't fit.

I've now been told that I can only obtain a store credit.

I had no way of assuming that the fit had changed so radically since I last bought clothes from you. I am 6'3 and weight 240 lbs. A store credit is not really very useful to me. The Boston store is now closed and it is unlikely anything there would fit me anyway.

I have been a good customer of yours. I attempted to remain one and it didn't work out. I was acting in good faith and was told that I could return these. I believe that you should return my money.

If you begin to make xxxl shirts I can become a customer again. Thank you.

Re: “The Green Building

I got married there in August. The manager stiffed us on our deposit, breezing past the contractually obligated return date, offering nay but excuses up til this weekend. After three months of misleading us he blew up at my wife, telling her he had "bigger things" he was dealing with. He then suggested we concede our deposit as a "charitable donation." Supremely disappointed.

Re: “Tandem Bar

Horrible bar service, I'm not surprised that this horrible bar got only one star from most reviews. This is the worst place to buy a drink in Brooklyn, over priced, rude staff, and music is not great - over use of a fog machine. Also stay away from the bathrooms, only one unisex bathroom which is over crowded and gross.

Re: “The Secret Theatre

I'm the writer of "The Get-Together," one of the plays featured in this festival. Without my knowledge, without consulting me, the director totally changed the content of my play. It was changed from a simple, minimalist comedy ala Harold Pinter into a "swinger party." The artistic director, Rich Ferraioli, and the managing director, Richard Mazda, seem to think this is just fine and dandy. Do not support a theatre that uses and abuses its writers and considerable themselves untouchable.
