Here's an amazing list of apartments available for temporary rent, and it's probably be partial! (At this point some may already have evaporated.)

Work continues on Oval Cafe. Oval Lounge was supposed to shut down this month for a "refreshing" also, but it appears Oval Cafe has to get finished first, otherwise amenity members will have very few amenity spaces left! (Monthly dues are being frozen during this time period.)

The grounds near the lower Oval numbers are really being spruced up and fenced off. Looking good!

It appears that popular Stuy Town deli, Bruno's Gourmet Market, is more gourmet (ie, tasty morsels you may not expect in your food) than we thought. The place was closed upon re-inspection on June 14, and its doors are still closed to the public as of today, June 16. Next to the official yellow sign from the Dept of Health and Mental Hygiene, Bruno's has put up their own version of events, stating that the store will open once "technical & electrical issues are resolved." These are the "technical and electrical issues" that have to be resolved, as listed on the NYC Dept of Health and Mental Hygiene page:
I've had a couple of nauseating experiences at Bruno's, sighting workers with hand swipes along their runny noses handling food and, in one instance, a worker sneezing directly into her palms and about ready to proceed with her business as if nothing had happened. I dread to think of the mice and roaches scampering around in the back kitchen and their droppings, and how those droppings wind up in the lasagna, ravioli or pizza sold by Bruno's. No, that's not an extra dash of pepper you see!
