FINANCIAL DISTRICT?On the ongoing demolition of historic 213 Pearl Street: "Work has moved to the rear of the building today. Two workers on the roof were using some sort of piercingly loud saw to slowly grind the roof off." Also piercingly loud: preservationists' anguished cries. [CurbedWire Inbox]

LONG ISLAND CITY—Reports are trickling in from Rockrose's 4705 Center Boulevard in Queens West, the luxury rental building recently featured on Curbed Inside. One tipster's bulleted list: "No Laundry because the card machines don't have a phone line. Current status - unknown; No facilities apart from Gym at set hours. Understood because they didn't have health and safety approve the facilities yet...despite tenants moving in November 1; Building work still going on in building to a certain degres; Apartments are really rather nice. Views are great, the windows block out a LOT of sound, so it's very peaceful; RCN doing a good job with cable setup. They are on site every day and have problems ironed out almost immediately."
