Here’s the buzz. Co-authors Ted General, Jack LaTorre and Peter Scarpa just published their show-all book, in pictures that is, and it’s going to blow the sheets off of Bay Ridge for all the world to see. “Bay Ridge, Etc.” is a compilation of pictures and fables from the famed hood that span from its earliest beginnings to the present day. The book showcases before-and-after shots of houses, streets, taverns (there were lots and lots — and there still are!), and the people who’ve made Bay Ridge the hottest place in the borough to live. The champagne bottle was cracked at the book’s launch party, sponsored by the Bay Ridge Historical Society on Jan. 12 at a gala event at the Yellow Hook Grille in Bay Ridge. Nu, where else should it be? Standing O says hurry and get yourself a copy because this book is flying off the shelves. You can grab your copy by contacting the Bay Ridge Historical Society at (718) 680-0945. And get this: all proceeds of the book will be donated to the society. Now that’s one worthy Standing O!Reach reporter Joanna DelBuono at jdelbuono@
