Just Kids reviewed: Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe on the streets of New York. [NYT]

Ray's Candy plight in the Times: "There is no shortage of places in the area to find a plate of fries or a cup of coffee, Ray’s patrons say, but there are not many where they feel like members of a community instead of mere consumers..." [NYT]

Check out the cool Canal Street poster: "we want to remember the Canal Street we’ve always loved: a place notorious the world over for providing customers with what they want, for as cheaply as they want it." [NYT]

Plaza Hotel condo conversion not so great. [Curbed]

"A Prospect Heights homeless shelter that housed about 80 families was itself made homeless over the weekend, to make room for the controversial Barclay's Center/Atlantic Yards project." [Gothamist]
