A blog about Brooklyn life
Brooklyn Heights is a village in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, United States. The population was 1,558 at the 2000 census.
I can't believe you are mentioning this--a couple weeks ago my apartment was flooded by the idiot who lives above me, and since I was getting no help from my building and was worried about the water getting into the electric areas, I decided to call the Brooklyn Heights fire department and ask them if this was an emergency that required immediate attention. So I googled "Brooklyn Heights fire department". I thought the area code was odd but I was so freaked out and not thinking clearly that I assumed because they were the fire dept., they had a special area code. So a man answers and I explain that I'm on Clark street and my situation. He's like, "where are you???" and I say, "On Clark, between Henry and Hicks, right down the street from you" and he says, what city, and I start getting impatient and I say, BROOKLYN! And then he says, but what state are you in and I say NEW YORK of course and then he says, "We're in Brooklyn Heights OHIO. We are a very small community of homes. Well, I was completely embarrassed but we both had a good laugh about it. And that was how I learned that there was a Brooklyn Heights, Ohio. By the way, our fire dept. doesn't seem to have a phone number that one can find on the internet.
Totally frustrating for you, but a great story to tell for years to come! Glad you got a laugh out of it at least, I would totally have blown my fuse!!!
