Let's Go to Red Hook and Burn Cars!

Brooklyn Heights: The Henry Street bike lane has been painted solid green … and it looks kinda cool! Will other bike lanes citywide get the look? [McBrooklyn]
Chelsea: Even as the Chelsea Hotel, under new corporate management, prepares to go sorta fancy, it's slashing nightly rates to as low as $99. What gives? [LivingWithLegends]
Coney Island: The circus is coming here for a week starting July 30, complete with Pastel Poodles and the Human Cannonball! [KineticCarnival]
Dumbo: The hood just wasn't complete without a full-service pet-supply store–slash–kung fu academy. And now it has one. [DumboNYC]
Greenpoint: On Franklin Street, E.T. mounts a lemur from behind while simultaneously ruining your childhood. [Newyorkshitty]
Red Hook: Ritual car-burnings on Beard Street continue here, even in the shadow of the in-progress Ikea. [GowanusLounge]
West Village: Work is under way to bring some order to the chaotic (and a wee bit dangerous) meatpacking-district intersection of Ninth Avenue and 14th Street. [Streetsblog]
