MANHATTAN—The folks at AddressReport have done some number crunching to determine Manhattan's most "family-friendly" neighborhoods, which is really just a summation of the percentage amount of homes per neighborhood that have at least one kid under the age of 18 living there. Kind of surprisingly, Battery Park City comes in at number one, followed by East Harlem, Harlem, Tribeca, and the Lower East Side, in that order. The full infographic can be found below.

BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK—Build Up NYC, a group rallying against Pierhouse and Pier 1 development, is calling for the de Blasio administration to intervene in the park's building activities. The activist group is protesting Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation's "lack of oversight of the Pier 1 development, lack of transparency surrounding the future development of the proposed Pier 6 development and lack of engagement with community and all stakeholders." The group is actively seeking information gathered in BBP Corporation's RFP for Pier 6 development. The Corporation has allegedly denied Freedom of Information Law requests and appeals regarding Pier 6 stakeholders and bidding developers. [CurbedWire inbox; previously]
