CROWN HEIGHTS—The church and community hall that used to stand at 267 Rogers Avenue are no more, as shown in this recent picture of the site, having been torn down to make way for a five-story, 165-unit apartment building that includes a fitness center. [Flickr; previously]

EVERYWHERE—Council Member Ben Kallos unveiled a proposal today to add an illegal hotels complaint category to the city's 311 App in order to help the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications deal with those types of complaints more efficiently. A recent City Council hearing on Airbnb revealed that the city has a difficult time dealing with the volume of illegal hotel complaints it receives. [UPDATE: The DoITT is responsible for building the app, not for handling individual 311 calls.] [CurbedWire Inbox;previously]
