The NY Times reports that a proposed change to tax-exempt financing bonds could mean a “question mark” for three projects: the proposed Barclay’s Center at Atlantic Yards (rendering seen here via Curbed), the new Yankee Stadium, and Citifield.

The City Council voted “no” on a proposed rezoning in College Point, Queens. Was it just about affordable housing, or, the NY Observer asks, was it politically motivated?

The NY Times explored the new 125th Street. It also reported on the DOB’s charges against architect Robert Scarano for ignoring zoning requirements. And, the Times’ City Room blog is now taking questions about mass transit for Gene Russianoff, staff lawyer for the Straphangers Campaign.

Curbed reports that tonight, some East Villagers will be protesting the loss of the “gritty” character of the neighborhood, meanwhile the punks are returning to their namesake bench in Tompkins Square Park.
