Jesus is waiting for followers in Sunset Park, lenders are waiting for Damon Dash in Tribeca, cute kitties are waiting for homes in Kingsbridge... and today’s boroughs report is waiting for you to click through!
A librarian gets a scandalous e-mail, and the authorities are called in.
What has today's boroughs report got for you? A rash of stabbings in Billyburg, expanding movie studios in Astoria and Long Island City, and much (well, a bit) more!
Doing your business in a shiny "pod" in Chelsea's new Jade, sailing the lifeguard chairs at Coney, independent media going corporate in Riverdale, and more, in our daily boroughs dispatch!
Bushwick: Teens here are flipping the bird to military recruiters, instead embracing Che Guevara and Cesar Chavez at their own social-justice high school. [Indypendent] East Village: Is the end near for that infamous phone booth on Avenue A where "thousands of heroin orders have been placed"? [Neither More Nor Less] Flatbush: The city wants to refurbish the grand but fading 1929 Loew's Kings Theater, where Brooklyn beep Marty Markowitz got his first kiss. Sexy imagery like that should help accelerate the project. [Real Deal via Ditmas Park Blog]
Chelsea: All the fabulous old Chelsea freaks and bohos partied at Cindy Gallop's wacky loft in the old YMCA building, but this time, sadly, the waiters kept their pants on. [Living with Legends] Midtown: It's funny/sad that a fortune-teller here duped an entrepreneur out of nearly half a million by telling him he was cursed, but it's just plain funny that the Post said the guy was from "tony Wilson, Wyoming." Bitchy! [NYP] Red Hook Guess which "degentrifying" hood had the distinct honor of producing confetti for today's Super Bowl–victory parade? Local hearts were "aflutter" with pride…get it? [The Real Deal]
Astoria: This blogger doesn't know which new arrival to the neighborhood is worse: the Broadway chorus-boy gays or the Applebee's. [Manhattan Offender] Bay Ridge: They're gonna move the ugly-ass Gowanus Expressway onto a sleek cable suspension roadway and fill in the old area with emerald parkland! Well, wouldn't it be pretty to think so. [NYDN Cobble Hill: A developer wants to build townhouses on the empty land surrounding the pretty old Lamm Building on Amity Street, but locals object because the new houses wouldn't face the street and leave room for backyards like all the other houses. Tense. [Brownstoner]
Ditmas Park: That bright-red trail of blood at the Newkirk subway station? No worries, just a guy who slashed his hand while playing with a pen knife! [Ditmas Park Blog] Dumbo: Wow, look at the big fat space on Main Street where performance den Galapagos will go in the wake of its move from Williamsburg. [DumboNYC] East Village: Who's the dude with the mustache, British accent, and "big soulful brown eyes" who's ripping off small, women-owned boutiques? [Vanishing New York]
Bay Ridge: How close were you to the tornado? Check this map to find out. [McBrooklyn] Coney Island: Astroland rides are off the market, for now. [Bloomberg via Kinetic Carnival] East Village: St. Mark's Hotel is still the best one in the city for a cheap quickie. Yikes. [Gridskipper] Forest Hills: There's photographic proof that Trader Joe's is really coming. [Forest Hills 72] Gowanus: Put down $15 million for a warehouse on Third Avenue now, and just wait for zoning laws to go your way. [Brownstoner] Riverdale: Will a Starbucks open here, too? [HuntGrunt] South Slope: The shoddy building at 18-20 Jackson Place finally collapsed! [Gowanus Lounge]
