CurbedWire: No Parking in Soho, IAC Waste, Omni De-Shvos

SOHO?We kick off this Thursday edition of the Wire with some good old fashioned reader ranting: "It's official, I HATE Cashmere Mafia (right). They've blocked off almost all parking spots in Soho for filming. What the Fuck Darren Star? No chance I'm watching your show now. Helllooo Lipstick Jungle." We'll leave it up to the Nielsens to decide. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WEST CHELSEA?What's that? More rants? OK! "Saturday night I was driving down the West Side highway and passed Gehry's new building-- the IAC headquarters. Every single light in the building was on. (1) why must we waste so much energy to light up this atrocity? (2) it is obnoxious and wasteful, especially when the mayor is trying to push green initiatives in the city and many are encouraging developers to go 'green.' [CurbedWire Inbox]

UPPER EAST SIDE?Alright, that's enough kvetching. Let's head up to 95th Street: "i noticed the omni condos in the east 90s aren't using shvo for sales anymore. what's up?" Could it be that not even Michael Shvo could bring himself to care about the Upper East Side? We kid, we kid. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURG? There's more going on along North 3rd Street than just strange windows. A reader writes: "Looks like the sales office for 80 Metropolitan in W'burg is coming along quickly in the former MiniJake storefront at N. 3rd and Wythe..." We don't know if quickly is the correct word. [CurbedWire Inbox]

THE INTERNETS?There's nothing like a new web presence to get us randy: "Looks like Corcoran Sunshine is doing some new self-branding, explaining the merger and unveiling the new website. See for yourself." Will you look at that. [CurbedWire Inbox]
