1) Soho: Our rumbler tried to pull a fast one on us by slipping us a photo of 350 West Broadway, which has been vacant since the Stone Age. One reader pointed out this Wired New York thread that has info on a proposed 11-story residential addition to the building. Will it actually happen? That's for the Gods (or the Martignetti brothers or whomever else rules Soho nowadays) to figure out.
2) Chelsea: No one quite knows what to make of the old Exxon station site at 23rd Street and Tenth Avenue, but one reader noted the water-pumping comment and replies, "Almost every new building site from 9th Ave west has a good chance of requiring dewatering. Nothing odd in that regard." And another says: "I don't know about the old gas station on 23rd...but I saw people moving into highline 519 across the street from it this weekend." Oh man, remember that weirdo building? Looks we should've taken the over.
3) Times Square: The Daily News pulled the trigger early and ran a whole story on the delayed TKTS/Stairway to Nowhere booth in Duffy Square. We covered it yesterday, but here's the gist: glass supplier = bankrupt; engineering = difficult; workers = working; completion = TK. A tipster snapped a current photo for us, and by the looks of it, it'll be a while before confused tourists climb those stairs.
