Brooklyn Bridge Park May Be Bad for the Fishes

Brooklyn Heights: In addition to being way over budget, long-planned Brooklyn Bridge Park may damage marine life with its expected rowing and kayaking facilities, says state enviro-honchos. [Brownstoner] Chelsea: Work has been stopped on "car-chitect" (he-he) Annabelle Selldorf's much-hyped condo tower that allows folks to take their car right up to their own sky-high garages.

Momofuku Ko Reservations May Go Live Tonight; Madman Live-Blogs Meal From iPhone

Eater reports that Momofuku Ko's reservation system may go live as early as tonight, and seats are still available for opening night.

It is” — and even picking a dish of the year: the “shaved foie with a Riesling gelee, lychee and something crunchy.” When another user begs him to take photos, he demurs, “Sorry. I don’t take pics in restaurants. Generally try to keep a low profile.” You want to keep a low profile? Put down the phone and eat!
