The WSJ gives away the secret to the rush on condos at Clinton West, the new development that sits atop the West Side rail lines: putt putt. Seems there is a putting green in the courtyard and new buyers were lured with free putters and balls. As Christine Haughney and Michael Corkery report, "The developer considered creating a driving range in the courtyard, using a series of nets to keep windows from being smashed. But after some thought, 'we decided it wasn't the best use of the space,' said Mario Procida, a managing member of GPG Equities, the developer."
