Brooklyn Heights Blog, Dec. 5, 2010

Longtime Heights neighbor and friend Joe Dec passed away on Wednesday, December 1, while walking to his home at 30 Clinton Street. Joe could often be seen sitting outside his apartment building chatting with neighbors who walked by. He was a fixture in the neigborhood. Those who might have noticed Joe years ago will remember seeing him with his black Pekingese "Muffin", who accompanied him everywhere.
