Rumblings & Bumblings Responses: Rent Chelsea

Answers to Tuesday's questions, by readers for readers, below. If you've got a better answer, another question, or a sweet, sweet digital photograph, drop us a line at

1) Williamsburg: The demolition is apparently too fresh at Kent between N. 3rd/4th for any meaningful discussion of what is to come.
2) Chelsea: Regarding the property at 21st between 5th and 6th, reliable commenting sources say large rental!
3) Harlem: Meanwhile, uptown at 125th and Lenox, the silence continues.

4) Hell's Kitchen: Lots of movie buffs out there. Apparently, the Swedish American Line seen behind De Niro in Taxi Driver docked at Pier 97 at 57th Street (above). The "High Line" in the background was likely the still elevated West Side Highway. More Taxi Driver locales at The Worldwide Guide to Movie Locations.
