Chelsea: A bank may occupy one of the first-floor biz units of the Chelsea Hotel, under new corporate management. What's next? The eviction of the age-old Dan's Chelsea Guitars store? [Living with Legends]
Coney Island: Will the kiddie rides in Wonder Wheel Park be next to go? [Gowanus Lounge]

Prospect Heights: Residents are still waiting for that Atlantic Yards ombudsman who was promised to the community two months ago. [Atlantic Yards Report]
