Everybody’s Sexy in Stuyvesant Town!

Greenpoint: Someone’s getting artsy in the subway to protest the oil spills here. [Gothamist]
East Village: Just a day after we linked to a bitchy new blog satirizing the newly gentrified Stuy Town, there comes word that, to boost rentals, 3,800 units have been given “condo-style” makeovers. Meawhile, check out the hatefully young, hip, and pretty people on Stuy Town’s glossy marketing site. Please say they’re models and not the complex’s next wave! [Curbed]
Park Slope: Is this cozy-chair bus station for real? Plus, the F stop at Fourth and 9th’s getting a face-lift. [Gowanus Lounge via all.growns.up]

Red Hook: Ikea, which opens here next month, has hired 300 folks for the store from around the city, but won’t say how many are from the hood. Locals, however, say that Hook hires are as high as 40 percent. [NYDN]
Tribeca: Dog urine is killing the hood’s noble trees! And we’re not talking a few teaspoons from a cute cocker…more like steaming gallons from a Great Dane! [Tribeca Trib]
Upper East Side: A huge hive of bees took over a newspaper vending machine on Second Avenue and 75th, transfixing locals. Seems that, true to UES form, they were just following the queen bee. [NYP]
Woodside: Queens beep Helen Marshall managed recently to point out dangerous cracks in an Amtrak overpass and look fashionable for spring at the same time. [Queens Crap]
