- The development changes coming to the Willoughby-Fulton Street part of the old Downtown Brooklyn will lead to dramatic changes in traffic patterns, rules and regulations. Brooklyn Eagle

- The Brooklyn Cyclones wiped out their rivals, the reigning champion Staten Island Yankees, in the opening round of the New York–Penn League playoffs. Brooklyn Paper

- Brownstoner tell us about WNYC's Worst Buildings in New York contest!

- Why is there a stop work order issued against the owner of the former Franklin Trust building at 166 Montague Street -- and what about that giant rat? Brooklyn Eagle
