CurbedWire: Faking It in Washington Heights?

Herewith CurbedWire in which we plumb our inbox for the need-to-know end-of-the-day buzz. Got something hot for the The Wire? Drop us a line.

1) Washington Heights: This ad seems to have all the trappings of a standard real estate promotion?3 bedrooms, 2 baths, renovations blah blah blah. But what's that in the corner? Our tipster writes, "Check out main photo. Are those real white people or photoshopped?" [CurbedWire Inbox]

2) Upper West Side: A reader wonders if business is really booming at the Rushmore. He writes, "The day the sales office opened they told people that all the one bedrooms were sold out and during yesterday’s Big Apple Circus promotion, they further said 20% of the units are sold. This is odd as the sales office is almost always empty. Perhaps they are doing their best to create the impression of a successful opening and/or prevent this project from competing with the still not sold out Avery." [CurbedWire Inbox]

3) Harlem: Are more changes in store for the troubled Harlem Park project? A tipster reports, "After years, the oversized billboards announcing the great coming of Harlem Park are finally down (right), no longer teasing Harlemites and Metro North commuters with false promises. Maybe this is a sign of new impetus into this much troubled project. Just maybe the politicians will stay away this time and let something rise out of this empty car park, I think not."
