    Someone, Think of the Children! • The state budget is here — virtually on time! — and guess what provision made it in while everyone was busy arguing about hospital cuts? A program that makes 400,000 uninsured children eligible for near-free health care. [NYT] • Hillary Clinton set a record for pre-primary fund-raising, drumming up $26 million in the first three months of 2007.

[Curbed] • Prospect Heights: At Forest City Ratner’s Atlantic Yards community-liaison office, they film you while you kvetch. [Atlantic Yards Report] • Springfield Gardens: Southeastern Queens residents take to the streets to blast overdevelopment, including homes made of … foam? [Queens Chronicle via Queens Crap] • West Village: Restaurateur Keith McNally joins the street protest over a massive billboard soon to dominate the meatpacking district. [Curbed] • Williamsburg: McCarren Pool will host nine free concerts this summer, complete with Slip ‘n Slide and dodgeball pit. Pasty hipsters, bring sunblock. [Brooklyn Record]
