City's threats to seize your fence got you down? Joe Lentol and friends got you back!
Let's comb through the links.
*Everyone is atwitter on Monitor Street after the city sent letters threatening that residents remove "encroachments" on public property. New York Shitty has video of last night's meeting, including the seminal moment when Joe slapped the table to maintain order.
*The Brooklyn Paper's Andy Campbell gets beaten up in Cobble Hill.
*Williamsburg's fashion Id Izzy Grinspan looks at Valentines Day in the hood... and cringes a bit.
*Benjamin Lozovsky at the WG News and Arts profiles the unfortunate story of the 99% Gallery's closure.
*Sticking with the WG, sharp profile by Mary Yeung on the Cinema on the Waterfront.
*Times Up! stages a Love-In at the Manhattan Bridge.
*Finally, the Borough President's address is tonight. And Marty Markowitz Eating has been updated. Expect the floodgates to open if there's a buffet after the speech. Let's go back to 2008 for a video highlight!
