Car Canoeing in Queens!

Brooklyn Heights: So the Coen brothers think they can disrupt the whole neighborhood for a month with their George Clooney film shoot and then make it up by donating to some community groups? We all know what the locals really wanted were backrubs from George. [Brooklyn Eagle]
Chelsea: Twenty-nine years ago today, Nancy Spungeon was bludgeoned (by Sid Vicious?) in the Chelsea Hotel's Room 100 … an anniversary the inn's new corporate management likely won't be fêting. [Living With Legends]
Cobble Hill: We hope the new owner of that building who tried to evict those two elderly sisters is happy now. Tragically, one's dead, and, more tragically, the other moved to Jersey. [Curbed]
Corona: There's a lot of Dominican families here named Corona, but that's just a coincidence … as is anyone here getting wasted on Corona beer. [Junction Blvd]
Greenpoint: Locals learn the hard way that if they want to instantly stop noisy after-hours construction, it's better to call the cops than the DEP. Uh … duh? [Newyorkshitty]
Maspeth: Manhattanites won't complain about a few curbside puddles when they see these videos of cars swimming through the streets of Queens yesterday. Eau-trageous! [Queens Crap]
Upper East Side: Unless those raccoons blocking your path as you run around the Central Park reservoir are foaming at the mouth, the Parks Department doesn't want to hear about it. [UES Informer]
