Some interesting articles in The Brooklyn Papers:

  • Mayor Bloomberg is set to appoint a new development czar for downtown Brooklyn–sources say it’s Joe Chan, a chief advisor to Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff.
  • City Council member David Yassky is demanding a 90-day stay in the demoliton of the Duffield Street houses, which were believed to have served as a station on the Underground Railroad. Developers want to turn the property into a parking lot; haven’t they heard of campaign contributions?
  • There is no crime wave in Prospect Park. Let the cruising continue!
  • Brooklyn Borough President Markowitz mugs for the camera … again. Oh yeah, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation got the title to a mile of waterfront, too.
  • Bruce Ratner gets to tear down buildings that he’s alrady torn down!
  • Pedestrian- and bicycle-advocacy stalwarts Transportation Alternatives is trying to find … well, alternatives to Grand Army Plaza’s traffic circle of death.
