Accompanied by the “relaxing live EDM” sounds of luchador-masked Mexican duo Chango, humans and dogs got their whacks (and bites) in at the Republican party’s current leading man, and got a monetary reward to go along with it. How was the night? As Trump himself might say, it was incredible, just the very best piñata smashing night that New York City has ever seen. (more…)

A Citi Bike membership costs $150/year. Makes sense if you have access to a bike station near home, but seems kind of useless otherwise. And until now, there weren’t many stations to speak of South Brooklyn. We know that’s about to change, and now DNAinfo reports that the bike share company is taking your online input on where to put docking stations all over South Brooklyn, choosing exact locations based on user requests.
