This morning a cop was shot in Park Slope (South Slope really). Interestingly, the guy they arrested for shooting him is apparently the husband of another cop, who has been suspended and is under investigation.

The cop was shot pretty close to where I live (maybe 7 blocks?) and they took him to the hospital that's 5 blocks from my house (in the other direction).

On the way to the doctor this morning (the diagnosis: I have both bronchitis and strep throat) we passed a crap-load of cop cars and heard about it on the radio.

On the way back, I noticed a film shoot on one block, and completely separately an actor (I forget the name but remember the face) walking around the neighborhood with his kid.

I'm not sure which version of Park Slope I like less...

Let me count the ways. Actually, even better, I'll show you - a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

A 3D rendering (using Google Earth, heh) of the proposed project:

Of course, the tan-colored behemoth is the Atlantic Yards projects, and the little gray buildings lost in its shadow are the existing buildings in the neighborhood, shown being starved of light and life by the demonic uprising in their midst.

The Environmental Simulation Center's report on the project, including a map and some photo-montage views:

And finally, the homepage for the Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods:

I think I can best sum up my feelings thusly:
Fuck you, Ratner. Fuck you very much.
