COBBLE HILL?The news earlier today about the Two Trees effort to break the allowable height in the Cobble Hill Historic District by ten feet led a special correspondent to send photos of the site next to the future Brooklyn Trader Joe's. According to the sign, the finish date on the project is October 1, 2008. If they get quick final approval, of course. [CurbedWire Inbox]

SOHO?Could there be progress on a Prince Street bike lane? A reader emails to say, "In the past week, No Standing Anytime signs have gone up on the north side of Prince St, where parking used to be allowed on weekends and after 6pm weekdays." [CurbedWire Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURG?To follow up on a Rumbling about the empty lot at N. 10th and Roebling that may or may not be the site of building that Enrique Norten would design and may or may not be the Burg project with which Michael Shvo had alluded he would be involved, a tipster emails: "I heard thru the grapevine that this project is dead and has been for months. The developer canceled the project." [CurbedWire Inbox]

GREENPOINT?And, finally, there is this email which came to our inbox: "Remember my bed-bug ridden, mushroom farm of an apartment in Greenpoint's Astral? Still don't remember? My super likes to take amateur porn photos in his spare time? Well, my roommate just called to see what the new rent will be on this 'rent-stabilized' apartment and Pistilli, the management company, plans to raise it to $1,900/mo for whomever is the next pour soul to inhabit this hell hole for which I currently pay $1,425/mo.
