Lost Keys Edition – Streetsblog New York City

It’s long, but we’ll say it: our increasingly confused, longtime old man dropped his keys on Boerum Place between Pacific and Dean yesterday afternoon after a brief struggle with a recalcitrant bicycle lock. He didn’t notice they were gone until he got to Fourth Avenue and Sackett Street.

  • Animal advocates protested a day after a carriage horse was injured in an accident with a car. Activists spilled fake blood on the sidewalk. (amNY)
  • In the news from the mayor, stop, meet the dig. (New York Times)
  • And, finally, more misbehaving drivers at Park Slope:
