CurbedWire: Alternative Edition

1) Nolita: Fire on Mott Street! Fire on Mott Street! Last night, we received this tip from a tipster telling us of awaking "to breaking glass at 11: 45 PM. A building on the east side of mott (I think its #306 Mott) between bleecker and houston (above ramons tailors) has several fire trucks outside and dozens of fire fighters breaking glass on the upper floors as we speak. the odor of smoke was noticeable... they just added multiple floors to this building this winter. and this is the second time the fire dept has been there. i think they are rental units." Of course. [CurbedWire Inbox]

2) Upper East Side: "The Marriott Courtyard on 92nd/1st opens fully tomorrow today." Good news for Rivereast residents who received a "6 month paid membership to the Pool/Health Club." Don't forget to stretch! [CurbedWire Inbox]

3) West Village: With today's news that the E.U. and Orchard have both received their liquor licenses, an industry insider emails, "a commercial tenant is leaving a very famous location in the west village." The available lease includes a cabaret license, which "are extremely difficult to come across." The result is "this historic alternative lifestyle bar can become anything, say a punk rock bar or hip hop bar etc." We're not sure if this is related to this story about Ivanka Trump buying Chelsea Lounge XL to create "one of her elite party spaces."

4) Red Hook: Fizzbow fizzle? A reader emails, "5 months ago you declared 'fizzbow fever is epidemic' at 29 Tiffany Place...The first Fizzbows barely got their asking price. The latest Fizzbows (they listed early April of this year), lowered their price two weeks ago; still no takers. Looks like they have a fever, but they're taking their own temperature -- rectally."
