Police are investigating after an apartment building with mostly Hasidic residents in Williamsburg was vandalized with swastika graffiti.

Hurrah! Community Board 1 will now be livestreaming their lengthy meetings! Here’s the meeting from earlier this week, which runs almost four hours.

Applications for affordable housing ($596 for a studio!) at the Domino Sugar Factory reached a whopping 87k—only 104 are available, with half designated to go to residents of CB1.

Following two pedestrian deaths, neighbors are speaking up about making Grand Street a safer place to walk.
