• An 11-year-old boy fell 10 feet through an open subway grate at Rudd Playground in Bushwick. The city was notified about the broken fence four weeks ago. (Sophia Chang for Gothamist)

• Grandmaster Flash, Slick Rick, Chuck D, Mayor de Blasio, Nas, LL Cool J, and Fat Joe helped break ground on the Universal Hip Hop Musem in Harlem in what I hope is the last collaboration between Mayor de Blasio and Nas. (David Cruz for Gothamist)

• The Times weighs in on the seemingly unending stream of self-owns that Andrew Yang has produced while running for mayor. Yeah, it feels stupid to harp on the fact that he couldn't name a single Jay-Z song even though the man wrote a literal anthem for New York City or that he says his favorite subway stop is Times Square, but it's endemic of his plans for the city too. Andrew Yang's lack of self-awareness might be funny his chances to win the mayoral race were just as likely as his chances to win the presidency were, but they're not. Instead, New York City might elect Michael Scott the mayor. (James Poniewozik for NY Times)

• None of the three major public pollsters in the New York City region have done comprehensive surveys in the mayor’s race, so it's literally anyone's guess as to who is really leading. (Dana Rubenstein for NY Times)

• The East River Ferry Stop at the India Street Pier is closed for construction with the intention of completion sometime this summer. (Melissa Kravitz Hoeffner for Greenpointers)

• What building would the mayoral candidates tear down if they could? (Jen Carlson for Gothamist)
