All Peeping Toms to Third Avenue, StatBedford Park: Council speaker Christine Quinn shopped at a Botanical Garden farmer’s market up here this morning to tout the acceptance of food stamps (well, EBT cards) at city Greenmarkets. Not that she used them to buy her string beans and melon. [West Bronx Blog]
Bushwick: In which a softhearted, London-bound alternababe holds a yard sale but ends up giving away half the items — including a doll’s head — to the local kids. [BushwickBK]
