Brooklyn Heights Residents Are Always Bringing It Back to Poop

Brooklyn Heights: This post is about the neighborhood’s best dog walker, and those who try to pull it off-message and make it about dog poop instead will be frowned upon, okay??? [Brooklyn Heights Blog]
Carroll Gardens: Robert Scarano’s 342 Bond Street building not only aesthetically attacks locals with its bunker-like façade, now it’s literally attacking them: Its guard dogs reportedly escaped and mauled one couple’s adorable little puppy (see pic). [Gowanus Lounge]
Clinton Hill:The Broken Angel building became the center of controversy when its quirky turret was torn down a few years ago, and then again when the owners decided to convert it into condos. Now, it’s the subject of a legal smackdown between its documentarian and her cinematographer. [NYDN]

East Village: Yep, that’s a youth hostel that recently opened at 27 East 7th Street. Just look up at the rooms full of “sleepy-eyed young Asians.” [Vanishing NY]
Fisk Terrace-Midwood Park: It’s now a historic district! Never heard of it? Neither have we! But this Flatbush district, with the Q train flanking its western border, is chock-full of gorgeous Victorian, Colonial Revival, and Shingle Style homes. [Curbed]
Long Island City: Reportedly, one man is left living in this beautiful old building that will be knocked down for a 42-story Rockrose rental tower with studios starting at $2,100. [LIQcity]
Upper West Side: Gee, wouldn’t it be great if the crazy, pedestrian-bedeviling corner of Columbus Avenue and 72nd Street were to look more like this? That’s what a local group is proposing. [Streetsblog]
