Rooms to Rent in the Chelsea Hotel! Sort Of.

Bushwick: Oh, God: Now the Offensive Gay Gentrifier is writing offensive haiku. ("Oh, the bodega/So many on each corner/Like ghetto Starbucks…") [BushwickBK]
Chelsea: Once again, new management is advertising rooms at the storied Chelsea Hotel for the low price of $119 a night. "Subject to availability," that is. So are they really available? [Living with Legends]
Clinton Hill: They're filming something in the hood today…and it's probably a Heineken commercial. [Clinton Hill Blog]
Park Slope: That raccoon that attacked a woman in the park recently? It and its kind apparently like fresh, raw fish. Hm — sushi-eating attack raccoons. [Gowanus Lounge]
Sunnyside: It's the new Astoria! Or so some are saying, based on slightly cheaper rents in this Queens nabe. [OuterB]
Williamsburg: At the community-board meeting last night, it was all about the fate of the half-built Finger Building (just how tall should it be?)… that, and the faltering sewage system, that is. [Brownstoner]
