'So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish'

We've been admiring for some time now the goodbye left on the marquis at the now-closed Brooklyn Heights Cinema at 70 Henry Street.

The cute little building will soon be demolished to make way for yet another residential development.

"So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish" is the title of one of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books by Douglas Adams.

It is the message left by the dolphins when they left Earth just before it was demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass.

Unlike the dolphins, Ken Lowy hopes to return to our planet, perhaps moving to DUMBO. (He had hoped to announce a site by now. We hope to hear from him soon.)
