Alexander Hamilton Just Wouldn't Have Approved of a Northeasterly View

Broadway-Flushing: As landmarking honchos drag their feet on protecting this enclave of pretty early-1900s homes, locals wonder if it's more evidence that city pooh-bahs care more about Manhattan and Brooklyn brownstones than they do historic Queens cribs. [NYDN]
Brooklyn Heights: How will the city get Brooklynites to the hard-to-get-to Brooklyn Bridge Park? It will bus them! [Brooklyn Paper]
Harlem: Some folks are protesting the move of Alexander Hamilton's Colonial house from a cramped street to St. Nicholas Park because — get this — it won't be facing the same way. [Curbed]

Midtown: One supporter of the proposal for the critically acclaimed MoMA-adjacent Nouvel tower has a gripe with community-board activists: "I was the only person under the age of 80 and not in a cruise-ship blazer and bow-tie … community boards are overrun by the retired … the only people with the time or desire to get involved …" Ageist, bitter words — but if you've ever attended a community-board meeting, kinda true, right?

Ridgewood: The Ridgewood Theater, the only cinema here — or in neighboring Bushwick, for that matter — is dead dead dead. [BushwickBK]
Williamsburg: The next time you're here, play Miss Heather's "gentrification bingo." Get a Thai restaurant, a Karl Fischer building, a stop-work order, a Corcoran office, and a "self-absorbed twentysomething" babbling or texting on a cell phone diagonally across your card and you win!
