CurbedWire: Pimp This Ride

1) Gramercy: Some clarity on today's Rumblings reference to "that asshole with the big white car." A tipster writes, "In fairness, I cannot vouch for or against the vehicle owner's character, but I can attest that his or her sweet ride is directly in front of, or directly opposite, that church every day of the week (depending on alternate side regulations). Oftentimes, the Eldorado in question is covered by a canvas car cover." It wasn't today so our tipster nabbed this pic. Pimpalicious! [CurbedWire Inbox]

2) East Village: At long last, you can finally hang around outside the Sculpture for Living. A tipster writes, "The fencing around the Astor Place/Gwathmey building's public plaza is finally down. You can now get your hard concrete benches, chairs, and chess tables on! Hooray for awkward public places!" [CurbedWire Inbox]

3) Upper East Side: First, 25 Broad fought its conversion, now it's the Manhattan House on E. 66th Street (right). A resident reports that tenants are fighting "the largest proposed condominium conversion in U.S. history" over violations of the Martin Act, which governs conversions. More at, natch.

4) Williamsburg: Finally, another Rumblings update. A reader writes, "The Catholic Church/School on North Ninth (or around there) is constructing a whole new wing. For once, it might not be shiny new condos we can’t afford." How quickly we forget. [CurbedWire Inbox]
