••• “Politicians are calling on the city [to] end tourist flights from the Downtown Manhattan Heliport.” (DNAinfo)

••• “The man who was driving the Frites ‘N’ Meats food truck when it exploded in Tribeca last month has been charged with reckless endangerment, officials said this week. Mohamed Beydoun, known to fans as ‘Moody,’ was given a desk appearance ticket after FDNY investigators found that the burger truck was carrying twice the legal amount of propane when it crashed into another car on the West Side Highway.” (DNAinfo)

••• So does photographer Albert Watson. (, which appears to be based in Singapore)

••• “City inspectors slammed a slew of Downtown restaurants with poor grades during the city’s most recent health inspection—including the historic Bridge Cafe.” Also: Mike’s Papaya (106 points!) Stuzzicheria, Max, Benvenuto Café, Hotel Millenium Hilton, Brandy Library.” I have mixed emotions about covering this stuff, because the system is pretty obviously flawed. But you may disagree, so make of it what you will. (DNAinfo)
