Gold-Dispensing ATM on 57th; Crown Heights Starbucks

CROWN HEIGHTS—The fact that Crown Heights is gentrifying rapidly has not exactly been in doubt, but this kind of makes it official: the neighborhood is getting its first Starbucks, in the ground floor of 341 Eastern Parkway. Where, as you may remember, one-bedrooms are renting for more than $3,000. So, yeah. [DNAinfo, via Brownstoner; previously]

WEST 57TH STREET—There is an ATM that dispenses gold bars on West 57th Street, which seems pretty appropriate. (What, are the new One57 tenants supposed to go all the way uptown for their gold bars?) Run by collectible coin retailer/auctioneer Stack's Bowers Galleries, the ATM tracks current gold prices and adjusts accordingly. [Scouting NY]

GOWANUS—A petition to Save the Kentile Floors Sign, started by Councilmember Brad Lander, is being circulated by the Park Slope Civic Council and has 1,856 signatures as of the writing of this post. The group also held a rally this morning. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
