The onslaught of disturbing criminal behavior continues in Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Police apprehended a homeless man accused of sexually assaulting a woman and robbing two others in their homes during a crime spree last night. The husband of one of the women was stabbed during one of the attacks.

Calling all laundry-loving penny pinchers: a new East Second Street Laundromat has miraculously bequeathed you free drying cycles after 6 p.m. – long as you use its washers first. Make a night of cleaning your clothes and getting nostalgic over when the entire cycle was free because your mom and dad owned a washer-dryer and you had no idea how amazing that was. [EV Grieve] We know New York: you still have that hankering for curation, so we’ve got fantastic news for you: rumor has it that a boutique called Rising Star will open on 168 Ludlow Street within a few weeks and offer “thoughtfully curated fashion and objects from emerging designers” – a relief for every one of you terrified that the city is so bogged down these days by apathetic, random tastes. [Bowery Boogie] The MTA’s late-night L train cuts – though providing essential improvements to the line – are really bumming out Bushwick loft-partiers, drinkers and bar owners. Ugggh, enduring taxes being put to good use is such a drag.
