  • 110 British travel agents didn’t know anything about Brooklyn, so Borough Prez Marty Markowitz (at right) shed a tear. Then he told the Brits about all the great “ethnic enclaves” (and museums and restaurants) in his beloved hometown. [NY Daily News]
  • But why didn’t he mention Williamsburg’s very first rooftop cabanas? It’s a top attraction at the new Mill Building. (That’s a pun.) [Brownstoner]
  • Somehow Mill was robbed of Cooper-Hewitt’s First Annual People’s Choice Award. That honor went to the fabulous pre-fab Katrina Cottage. [Interior Design]
