CurbedWire: Schrager Gets His Fire Trucks at 40 Bond, Brooklyn Heights Breaks New Ground

NOHO—At 40 Bond, first came the giant cranes carrying trees. And then the fire trucks. Blogger/photog Will Femia, who snapped the photo at right, files this report: "FDNY at 40 Bond Tuesday evening. No smoke, but also no guard at the gate. Later he'd only let me take a shot from the edge of the fence. Meanwhile, I have never been to this building without there also being other spectators standing on the street looking up." [CurbedWire Inbox]

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN—Apparently, some real estate listings play fast and loose with neighborhood labels. A reader writes, "Since when is the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Gold Street in Cobble Hill/Brooklyn Heights? I guess that means the Fire Department Headquarters, the 9-1-1 Call Center and the approachway to the Manhattan Bridge are in Brooklyn Heights, too, now?! Someone please teach realtors how to read a map!" Meanwhile, we're not even sure if Downtown Brooklyn is quite right. [CurbedWire Inbox]
