Brooklyn in Brief -- Thursday P.M.

- The Carroll Gardens Town Hall meeting (about 360 Smith and Carroll Gardens downzoning) with Councilman Bill De Blasio is tonight. The CB6 Land Use meeting (about some big new developments in the Columbia Street district) is also tonight. Everybody's MAD, especially at Councilman Bill. Gowanus Lounge

- NYU students are moving into the "Sliver Building" at 67 Livingston Street in Brooklyn Heights, says the Brooklyn Eagle, and the Heights Association has no problem with that. But the executive director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation urges local groups to "engage NYU to ensure the process contributes to the quality of life there."

- Glass buildings are going up all over. Anyone throwing stones? The NY Sun

- What would a science fair for musicians look like? That’s the question posed by the "semi-regular events" happening at Etsy Labs. (Like tonight at 8 p.m.) Dancetracks Digital News
