Rumblings & Bumblings is our weekly game in which we ask for your help in answering questions about development goings on about town. If you've got an answer to one of the queries below, leave a note in the comments. If you've got another question, or a sweet, sweet digital photograph, drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org. Answers Thursday.
1) Upper East Side: The photog who took the above action shot of 1055 Park writes, "Is this building coming down? Getting a makeover? Reinventing itself as a luxury maisonette? I walked past this small building on the southeast corner of 87th and Park last week - the commercial tenants on the 87th Street side are out, and the apartments upstairs look empty. According to ACRIS, it changed hands last fall. Any ideas as to its future? For something that looks like it would be more at home on, say, Second Avenue, it sure has a purdy street address."
2) West Village: A reader asks, "Does anyone know what's going on at that huge building (340-344 Hudson Street) on the East side of Hudson Street, between Charlton and Vandam? I haven't seen as much as a soul go in and out of there in years and suddenly there's a scaffolding and all this activity. Curious because up until now, I hadn't even seen a light inside. Does anyone know what it was? What it's going to become? Also, for that matter, does anyone know what's happening on the North West corner of Spring street and Hudson Street?"
3) Cobble Hill: Nostalgia blog Lost City wonders what's in store for this shuttered building on the corner of Warren and Hicks. Says LC, "As long as I've known it, the windows and doors have been sealed up with cinder blocks. Word in the neighborhood is that is was once, of all things, a Christmas tree ornament factory....I can't find any confirmation of this rumor, but locals say that, until recently, you'd find glitter on the sidewalks surrounding the building."
