    Husband and Wife Strippers Leave Us HangingBushwick: If you squint really hard, you can pretend this house is in a suburban glade and not next to the elevated subway in a tough hood. Or so this Realtor’s poster hopes. [Newyorkshitty] Carroll Gardens: Locals rejoice at the news that his-buildings-don’t-fit-with-this-hood architect Robert Scarano is off the job at 333 Carroll Street, but what will become of that inappropriately huge penthouse thingy they’ve been building on the roof? [Pardon Me for Asking] Corona: A husband-wife stripper team were busted for using MySpace to lure two teenage girls to their home, then to an orgy at a Manhattan strip club. Hey, why didn’t they ask us instead? God knows we’re of age. [NYDN via Queens Crap]

    Where Is Sherri’s Sketchy High-rise?Next to the Methadone Clinic: Not only is The View’s Sherri Shepherd insisting that Jesus predated the great classical civilizations, she’s also looking at buying a condo in a high-rise “next to a methadone clinic.” But where? Only that pre-Greco-Roman J.C. guy knows. [Curbed] Bedford-Stuyvesant: Lots of cute kitties here need a home. If you’ve already got enough cats, don’t look at the cute pictures, or you may end up with more, you big softie. (Or is it that you just can’t get along with people?) [Bed-Stuy Blog] Corona: First there was white flight. Now there’s black flight. And when Martians land here, everybody-else flight will ensue. [Junction Boulevard]

    Can’t Beat Building SexCarroll Gardens: Nobody wants to buy into this notorious new building, pictured here mounting an older, prettier structure from behind. [Brownstoner] Corona: The sad thing about this (apparently) new building is that, if you squint, it might even pass for Deco period if it weren’t for the hideous balconies and front door. [Queens Crap] Flatiron: Edwidge Danticat “reads from his memoir” tonight at B&N. Dude looks like a lady to us. [East Village Idiot]

    Car Canoeing in Queens!Brooklyn Heights: So the Coen brothers think they can disrupt the whole neighborhood for a month with their George Clooney film shoot and then make it up by donating to some community groups? We all know what the locals really wanted were backrubs from George. [Brooklyn Eagle] Chelsea: Twenty-nine years ago today, Nancy Spungeon was bludgeoned (by Sid Vicious?) in the Chelsea Hotel’s Room 100 … an anniversary the inn’s new corporate management likely won’t be fêting. [Living With Legends] Cobble Hill: We hope the new owner of that building who tried to evict those two elderly sisters is happy now. Tragically, one’s dead, and, more tragically, the other moved to Jersey. [Curbed] Corona: There’s a lot of Dominican families here named Corona, but that’s just a coincidence … as is anyone here getting wasted on Corona beer.

[NYT] Corona: “This Is What I Eat” is not a supermarket circular, but in fact a public art project about local eating habits. [Gothamist] Forest Hills: After a few months of construction, My Kitchen will open tomorrow on Metropolitan Avenue. [Queens Central] West Village: Da Silvano’s media connections may help keep a video showing rats around the restaurant off Fox News.
