Condos and Beer (Which Could Well Be New York's New Motto)

Bed-Stuy: A new wave of Bed-Stuy condos go where no condos have gone before. (East, of course). [Brownstoner]
Boerum Hill: Mmmm, beer: Cask Ale Festival kicks off at the Brazen Head on Atlantic Avenue. [Brooklyn Record]
Soho: Bedbugs chase Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson from Greene Street. [NYP]
Financial District: A 24-hour diner will invade Gold Street in January. As if bankers don't just order in, anyway. [MetroNY]
East Village: "Loanshark Bob" Marion returns to Avenue A after years of absence. Hooray. [Neither More Nor Less]
