Rampant Fowl Misidentification in Park Slope

Astoria: Residents have begun leaving threatening signs around for people who don't clean up their dog doo. What's next? Threatening 311 calls? [Joey in Astoria]
Brooklyn: A hotel is set to go up in place of stores that are still there and have not yet been sold to developers. That's always good. [Brownstoner]
Columbia Street Waterfront: Things aren't picking up around here the way people anticipated, and they don't even have streetlights! [NYT]
Harlem: The City Opera will play at the Apollo. They already have a stump for singers to lean on — smart move! [NYS]
Park Slope: Many have reported seeing feral chickens in the hood — but looking at a recent picture on Curbed, we have our own take: They're pheasants. No joke. [Curbed]
Staten Island: A "tot" fell out of a second-story window on Tompkins Street. Since it was of the human, not tater, variety, there was much concern — but she's okay! [Staten Island Advance]
