Ditmas Park Manse Finds a Fixer to Up It

Ditmas Park: Remember that beautiful, dilapidated mansion on the market for $1.75 mil that New York featured a while back? It just sold for $1.55 mil. Happy fix-up, somebody. [Ditmas Park Blog]
East Village: Gentrification haters have two fun protests tonight — one of the imminent Cooper Square Hotel, another of a local shoot for SATC ripoff Lipstick Jungle. [Vanishing New York]
Greenpoint: Chuck, fuck, but definitely not marry. That’s how Miss Heather feels about the daily papers that rip stories off from her posts (like last week’s one about sneakers hanging from phone lines) without crediting her blog. Girl, you gotta change that scatological blog title … yeah, even for the gutter mouth Post! [Newyorkshitty]

Harlem: It’s showtime at the … Victoria? Yep, that lesser-known 125th Street theater, built in 1917 and closed since the eighties, is getting a second life. [Columbia Spectator via Uptown Flavor]
Prospects Heights: And speaking of cranky bloggers, this Atlantic Yards watchdog takes issue with nymag.com’s calling him a member of Brooklyn’s “brownstone bourgeois” last week. He’d rather have been called a “policy wonk.” Get that! [Atlantic Yards Report]
West Village: A Jefferson Market librarian predicts that the architecturally awesome but fusty library will go hip, with a bookstore format and lattes. Oh, and that even his job will become cool, when folks learn that, “if you like reading and writing, you don’t have to go into publishing.” Is that a promise? [Villager]
Williamsburg: Twenty acres of the old Navy Yard here will become a Hollywood-style studio back lot, complete with fake New York street scenes to save on pricey close-downs of real streets for shoots. Wow, Billyburg will finally have brownstones. [NYP]
