Whoa, whoa, whoa—Rumblings on a Wednesday? Well, yeah, Jonathan Miller's off an island somewhere, so things are going to be a little loose around here for the next few weeks, capiche? As always, all Rumblings questions and answers are submitted by Curbed readers like you. Got one yourself? Hit the tipline or the comments.
1) East Village: "Right around the corner from the new Toll Brother's One Ten Third building is a giant abandonned lot. The lot is overgrown with weeds, and takes up much of the 13th street block (north side) between 2nd and 3rd avenue. Anyhow -- what's the story with this lot? Any ideas? Who owns it? Why is it lying fallow (ya know, the urban version of fallow)? I am asking because I, like the lot, reside on 13th street b/w 2nd and 3rd. Thanks much." We're reasonably sure we've covered this ground before, but search isn't turning up much. Anyone recall?
2) Clinton: "i need to know what is going on with the building on 56th and 12th avenue...it has been under construction for over a year yet there is never any progress or workers around. It seems to be a dept of sanit building but im not certain. what the hell???"
