It Happened One Weekend: New Jersey Starchitecture

1) Living in a Ludwig Mies van der Rohe-designed building (right) isn't as out-of-reach as you think. In fact, living in one is so attainable, that even a guy with handlebar sideburns, a cheap blazer and a Spam T-shirt can pull it off. Then again, it is Newark... [Habitats/Fred A. Bernstein]
2) Should it come as a surprise that this presumably unintentionally-hilarious story on the field of "real estate coaching" has roughly 10,000 more sports metaphors than we care to read within one newspaper article? Probably not. [Top Brokers Hire Coaches to Climb Higher/Nadine Brozan]
3) Fallout from the Shopsin's-to-Carroll-Gardens false rumor freak-out: Greenwich Village blogger consumes grilled cheese sandwich, chocolate milkshake, white-chocolate-macadamia-nut pancakes and Orange Julius in one weekend. [On the Menu, Rumors Greatly Exaggerated/Kayleen Schaeffer]
4) BREAKING: People who post housing ads on Craigslist are picky and occasionally weird. [The Nitpicking Nation/Stephanie Rosenbloom]
5) It's that time of year, when graduates move to New York and get their first taste of the New York City rental market. Watch as their dreams get dashed!

[The Hunt/Joyce Cohen]
6) One we missed from the Post on Thursday: More on those Midtown West skyscrapers going up, including the Atelier, known to Curbed readers for its deadly volleyball and basketball courts. [NYP]
