The ‘Post’ and ‘Daily News’ Have Contrary Takes on the Future of the Atlantic Yards

Atlantic Yards: Behold these dueling visions of the future Atlantic Yards: Gehry’s dramatic, all-promises fulfilled futurescape or the Post’s stadium and office tower only surrounded by acres of parking lots where homes were demolished. Which will it be? [Curbed]
Dumbo: The remake of the seventies subway-heist classic The Taking of Pelham 123, which will star John Travolta and Denzel Washington, shoots here tomorrow. [DumboNYC]
East Village: The old Italianate building at 62 East 4th Street used to house Andy Warhol’s gay-porn theater, but why are the top three floors empty today? [Gothamist]

Harlem: The woman at Prudential Douglas Elliman ready to bring a bunch of new retail to Harlem says you have to nod along with old-timers up there that the neighborhood has more history than others, even though that’s not necessarily true. [NYT via Uptown Flavor]
Park Slope: Nabe native Jennifer Connelly and her actor hub, Paul Bettany, are selling their limestone mansion here (probably for $8.5 mil) and moving to a $7 mil penthouse in the West Village. [Brownstoner]
Rockaways: On May 12, ferry service will start between here and Pier 11 in lower Manhattan. That’s cool, but have you ever biked across the Marine Parkway Bridge over Jamaica Bay that connects Brooklyn and the Rockaways? That’s really cool. You should try it! []
Upper East Side: Fancy locals around here are actually against the closing of a longtime 77th Street homeless shelter, saying that it does “remarkably good work.” Maybe we all shouldn’t be so quick to pigeonhole those Upper East Siders as richy-snooties. Maybe they’re richy-snooties with a heart, hm? [NYP]
