Brooklyn Bridge Park Transparency; Queens Is Number One

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS—Build Up NYC, along with State Senator Daniel Squadron, protested the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation's lack of transparency by caroling outside the Corporation's headquarters this morning, singing a version of "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas" with the lyrics changed to call for the disclosure of the list of potential Pier 6 developers. "The entire [Pier 6 development] process and plan continue to raise major concerns—about responsible development, the local school overcrowding crisis, the impact of the nearby LICH site, and a changing financial landscape," said Squadron.

QUEENS—Travel media company Lonely Planet has chosen Queens as the number one tourist destination for 2015. Apparently, "Nowhere is the image of New York as the global melting pot truer than Queens. Browse New York's biggest Chinatown in Flushing, shop for brilliantly colored saris in Jackson Heights, and inhale the heady aromas of coffee and hookahs in Astoria." Hear that, all you people milling around Times Square? [CurbedWire Inbox]
