Death of 2-month-old child in The Edge condos ruled a homicide

edgeThe death of a 2-month-old child in The Edge condos this past October has been ruled a homicide. From The Daily News:

The death of a baby who perished seven months ago in his parents swank Brooklyn condo has been ruled a homicide, authorities said Tuesday.

Hudson Dipede was just 2 months old when he died at The Edge — his family’s multimillion-dollar waterfront condo on N. Sixth St. in Williamsburg — on Oct. 17, officials said.

First responders found the baby with trauma to the head, officials said. He was also bleeding from his nose.

The baby was rushed to Woodhull Hospital, but doctors were unable to save him, officials said.

The death is believed to be due to shaken baby syndrome. No arrests have been made at this time.

Tanlines’ video for ‘Palace’ stars Natasha Lyonne, Alex Karpovsky and Baby’s All Right

Tanlines’ new video for Palace is largely filmed in Williamsburg’s Baby’s All Right and features a few faces you may recognize. From UO Blog:

Set to “Palace,” off of the band’s sophomore album Highlights, the music video follows singer/guitarist Eric Emm and his doppelgänger (played by Alex Karpovsky, of HBO’s Girls, who co-directed the music video with Teddy Blanks) as they react differently to a break-up.

Think of it as the band version of Sliding Doors, with a similarly impressive lineup of actors; in addition to Alex, the music video also stars Natasha Lyonne (aka Nicky Nichols on Orange is the New Black) and features appearances by Leo Fitzpatrick and Ben Sinclair.
