Tuesday links

I didn't include a weekly links list on Friday, so let's take a look back at eleven stories from the past week or two that deserve a second look.

*At The Courier, Gary Buiso compares and contrasts Superfunding the Gowanus Canal versus Newtown Creek while I have story about the public's public comments for Newtown Creek. Gary and I are working to adapt the word "Superfund" as a verb. Like summer. As in, I summer on the banks of the Newtown Creek every year. Or, superfund this!

*Back to the Brooklyn Paper we go, as Andy Campbell loves David's Brisket (I tried to get in there once but it closed early), partied down at Starlite Lounge, but couldn't get into Club Exit in time because it has closed down.

*Chris Bragg at City Hall News reports that A Short Story old friend Costa Constantinides is running for the State Assembly in Astoria now that Michael Gianaris has cast his eyes towards the State Senate. He's been thinking about this for years.

*BushwickBK recounts a horrific fire in East Williamsburg at 55 Harrison Place.

*The Park Slope Armory is finally open!
