An amusing Times correction from the Real Estate section: "The Habitats article last Sunday about a jewelry designer who lives in Chelsea and bemoans the gentrification of the neighborhood included an incorrect comment from the designer about the number of self-service laundries on Eighth Avenue between 14th and 23rd Streets. Two remain, not just one." [NY Times]
