Good morning, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.

It was sunny as we woke up today, but we’re missing that warmth we experienced last week. You can expect to contend with a stiff breeze and temperatures in the high 40s as you make it through your afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

Here’s more local news to get your morning started:

  • If you haven’t made it out to enjoy spring in the nabe yet, you’ve missed out on seeing lots of flora taking hold. We spied a taste of the beautiful colors blooming on Myrtle Avenue in this Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership blog post. Have you taken any photos of local plants coming to life this spring? Share with on The Nabe’s Flickr group so all your neighbors can see.
  • Community Board 2 might want to take over Atlantic Yards by changing district maps, but Community Board 8 has formally rejected the idea, according to the Atlantic Yards Report. CB 8 board members wrote in a letter to mayor Mayor Bill de Blasio, Borough President Eric Adams, and 35th District Council Member Laurie Cumbo that it does not take the realignment of its borders lightly, but would be open to meeting with members from Community Boards 2 and 6, which all share part of Atlantic Yards, to develop a plan.
  • The Brooklyn Navy Yard will soon be home to whiskey, photography and performance art tours at BLDG 92, DNAinfo reported. With all that’s happening at the navy yard you might want to move closer. If that’s your plan, we spied a three-bedroom rental on Carlton Avenue, highlighted on Brownstoner.
