- On the same day that our deputy editor spotted the above graffiti in Park Slope, The New York Times has an article about the unforeseen benefits of Citi Bike—including as a method to pick up potential romantic partners. Awww. [The New York Times]


- There is a giant inflatable Mr. Darcy—as in the character from Pride and Prejudicefloating in the lake in London's Hyde Park. Colin Firth fans, start planning those pilgrimages now. [HowAboutWe]


- MoMA has instituted a "viewing only" line for its überpopular Rain Room installation, for those who are impatient. Wait times to actually experience the room have recently stretched into the four- to five-hour mark, and you're not allowed to line up after 2pm. Yikes. [Gothamist]

- Brooklyn dad-rockers the National participated in Pitchfork's Over/Under video series today. Underrated: changing diapers, automatic toilets, mushrooms. Overrated: The Police. Split vote: shorts. (Twin bros Aaron and Bryce Dessner are pro-shorts; everyone else is against.) [Pitchfork.TV]


- WNYC looks at the development of skyscrapers during the Bloomberg administration. Fun fact: Seven of the city's 20 tallest skyscrapers were built on Bloomie's watch. [WNYC]
