According to police, a man was slashed and robbed in McGolrick Park Saturday night around 9:30pm. He had seen someone in a group of people drop a pack of cigarettes and went to return them—only to get his head smashed on a metal bar, slashed on his cheek with a knife and robbed of his iPhone, $250 in cash and a bracelet.

A Paulie Gee’s server was seriously injured after a cyclist struck her on the corner of Manhattan and India. Without insurance, she’s now facing $10k in medical bills and $25k of  bills and lost wages combined while she recovers. You can donate to her crowdfunding campaign to help her recover physically and financially.

The L-Train shutdown plans are being put together seemingly very slowly, and of course not without debate. Carpool lane? Maybe.

A pedestrian was struck by a driver on Newell between Nassau and Norman on Tuesday night, and critically injured.

Say it ain’t so! The Brooklyn Kitchen is planning to close up its Williamsburg store and move to Industry City.

The women’s-only swim hours at the Metropolitan Pool in Williamsburg are still controversial, and now the Mayor is getting involved.

More than 18,000 people are expected to view the Kosciuszko Bridge bite the dust.
