In a Bold Move, McCarren Pool to Replace Hipsters With Water

Astoria: If you really want to nab those graffiti thugs up on your roof, it's better to call the cops before you tell the thugs you're about to do so. Live and learn. [Astorians]
Brooklyn Heights: With Henry Street scoring a perfect 100 on this Website in terms of its walkability to various amenities, residents there must be feeling very smug today … as usual. [McBrooklyn]
Midwood: A new condo designed for Orthodox Jews will have units as large as 1,700 square feet. Is that really big enough for these families? [Living in Victorian Flatbush]
Roosevelt Island: A whole mess of nineteenth-century expedition tents will grace Southpoint Park this October. No, it’s not the mayor's solution to affordable housing — it's an art installation. [Roosevelt Islander via Curbed]
Upper East Side: What’ll replace the empty storefront at 76th and Second? A Pottery Barn kids’-clothing store! How perfectly edgy for the UES! [78thand2nd]
Williamsburg: Now that it's a landmark, the McCarren Park Pool may not long remain the exclusive domain of indie-band-flocking hipsto-rexics. Like, wah. [NYPress via Brooklyn Enthusiast]
