CurbedWire: Note Passing at 192 Orchard, Mold Spotting at TwoOneNine Withers, Jehovah's Abandon Dumbo

Time now for CurbedWire, the end-of-day rumor, gossip, and innuendo wrap. Got something you think might be Wire-worthy? Let us know with an email to tips@curbed.com. Tipster anonymity preserved, as always.

LOWER EAST SIDE Tenant/Management relations seem to be less than serene at 192 Orchard Street. A resident sent us this written exchange reproduced at right, noting, "There was like two of these on every floor, I don't know why the felt the need to put them everywhere, but anyway here is the amazing note someone left on the note. And it's true, in talking to my neighbors, everyone's been calling before it even broke." [CurbedWire Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURGAfter an early tour at TwoOneNine Withers, a reader reports, "Just saw the new building The Developers Group is hawking on Withers. The apartments were O.K., 100 square feet too small and 100k too expensive. Great finishes though, in both style and quality. The story is down in the 'Recreation Room' where the mold I first noticed as black spots, was in fact full, three-dimensional growth. I didn't know whether to put on a respirator, or make a salad."

DUMBOApparently, the long rumored Jehovah's Witness HQ in Dumbo is no mo. Sayeth a tipster, "The Jehovah's Witnesses have canceled their plans to build the complex in Dumbo (the one that the neighborhood fought so hard against last year). This should prompt a developer bidding war over the largest undeveloped plot in the city." [CurbedWire Inbox]
