Light rain developing by late morning, continuing into the afternoon. A thunderstorm or two also likely, as we head to a high of 59. More rain likely tomorrow. Today we’re keeping an eye on the fate of 180 Ludlow, the stalled hotel project. Developer Serge Hoyda goes before the Board of Standards and Appeals in an effort to re-start construction. Plus, we’re following developments in Albany, where the battle over renewal of rent protection laws is intensifying. Also, we’re looking forward to an illustrated talk on the history of the Bowery at the Tenement Museum. Check out our Calendar for more neighborhood events.
