Good-bye, Irving Plaza. Hello, Fillmore New York

Gowanus: Ecofriendly Whole Foods continues to ignore pleas from area residents that its store coming to Third and 3rd be, uh, ecofriendly. [Gowanus Lounge]
Gramercy: The (sadly franchisey-looking) new Fillmore sign has gone up on the marquee of the old Irving Plaza. [Idolator]
Greenpoint: Locals party with pot, booze, coke, and Time magazine. Good times. [Newyorkshitty]
Harlem: A 123rd Street minister has sparked a boycott of new businesses that he says are pushing out the hood's "indigenous people." [VV]
Kensington: Can't save enough to make a 20 percent down payment? A sponsor can help. [Kensington (Brooklyn)]
Upper East Side: Good fences make good doggies? After lots of nasty barking between the owners of big mutts versus small ones, a new waterfront dog run at East 63rd Street will have a temporary fence to keep the Dobermans from the dachshunds. [NYS]
Williamsburg: Look for a new psychedelic mural by Dave "SKWERM" Ellis over at 58 North 6th. [Brooklyn Record]
