CurbedWire: 240 Kent Gets Its Scaffold Back On

1) Williamsburg: An tipster updates us on the goings-on at 240 Kent (above): "Drove by this weekend. Scaffold is re-erected. Permits are now on door. The permit allows for SEVEN more floors. They are still installing windows on the existing two floors, so I don't get what is going on." [CurbedWire Inbox]

2) East Village: A distressed tipster writes, "Last week, I was waiting for the uptown bus in front of Kim's Video on East 3rd and Avenue A when I noticed that the coffee shop/Internet cafe on the opposite block had been closed. I used to go there all the time and was upset by this. What is going in its place? When was its last day?" [CurbedWire Inbox]

3) Chelsea: Finally, from the north north MePa: "Rumor has it that the U Haul on the south east corner of 23rd and 11th is under negotiation to be sold. And across the street, the 'gentlemen's' club Privilege on the north east corner of 23rd and 11th has been chained up for a few weeks. The garage behind Privilege that runs back to 24th and 11th also just shut it doors. Looks like something is brewing on both corners." [CurbedWire Inbox]
