Pay-as-you-go restrooms, that clean themselves after use, are coming to a street near you (if you live in Riverdale or Morris Park).

Helen Foster is staying out of the borough president's race, says Daily News columnist Bob Kappstatter. Instead, with the support of the party, she'll run for a third City Council term (District 16). More here on her likely opponents.

If the BP's race sees Assemblyman Ruben Diaz Jr. square off against Councilman Joel Rivera, Kappstatter expects them to run "a rather gloves-on contest." (The two are, or were, good friends.) Fordham University's Prof. Bruce Berg, on the other hand, predicts a hard fought and potentially ugly campaign.

A teenager was shot and killed yesterday on Gerard Avenue near East 168th Street.

The Ghetto Film School in Mott Haven was featured on NPR this week. You can listen here.
