Chelsea: The mayor and Tyra Banks pretended to plant a tree on the very block where a row of old businesses face extinction. [amNY]
Coney Island: The redo of the historic Parachute Jump will cost $4 million, triple the design cost of a typical city project, some critics say … and that’s even before actual work begins. [NYDN]
Fort Greene: Parents of kids at P.S. 287 joined forces with parents of kids at the Arabic-language school to blast plans to cram the Arabic school into 287’s building. [Brooklyn Eagle]

Ozone Park: The corner of Rockaway Boulevard and Atlantic Avenue is the place to go around here for a hooker, but the bodega owner at that corner ain’t exactly got a heart of gold toward the girls. [Queens Courier via Queens Crap]
Park Slope: Have you heard the one about two out-of-touch West Coast lesbians who came to Park Slope expecting to wallow in lesbianism, but all they saw were heteros with kids? Well, this is that one. [Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn]
Randalls Island: Even though a judge halted a deal between the city and private schools to build athletic fields that the schools would have prime use of here, the city just kept on building. And public-school parents want it to stop. [Metro NY]
Union Square: The playgrounds in the under-renovation park are dismantled, and barren, broken playgrounds always remind us of child molestation. Don’t you think? [Curbed]
