CurbedWire: Young Israel Destructoporn, Metal Shutter Houses Details, East 10th Street Luxury Hotel?

LOWER EAST SIDE?A tipster updates us on the demolition of the 95-year-old Young Israel Synagogue: "the Young Israel Synagogue, at 225 East Broadway in the lower Lower East Side, is being rubbled from within. I guess I can't believe it's really happening..." [CurbedWire Inbox]

WEST CHELSEA?A Curbed insider provides a few more details on Japanese architect Shigeru Ban's mysterious Metal Shutter Houses on 19th Street. Apparently it will be a small building with 12 loft apartments, give or take. The units will have metal roll-down doors over the windows, and will not look like Ban's previous shutter house work. Sounds like a bodega to us. So, is someone going to send over some renderings, or what? [CurbedWire Inbox]

EAST VILLAGE?Vanishing New York followed up on the rumors of East 10th Street's demise: "I went by and asked some shop employees what they knew about it. I was assured that they checked and double-checked, and buildings number 90, 86, and 84 are safe from demolition. That is excellent news. However, they also told me that the corner Green East bodega and the building that houses the former St. Marx Music (formerly formerly the Atlas Barber School) are slated to be razed to make way for a high-rise luxe hotel." Why hello there. [J'sVNY]

LONG ISLAND CITY?This sounds a wee bit shillish, but hey, we love that QueensWest: "I've just completed an application for East Coast 7 - Rock Rose's second phase in LIC - it's filling up fast ! I have to say, given the amenities (Indoor Pool, Gym, Screening Room, Steam Rooms, Saunas, Billiard Room), this place is looking to be quite the steal. 6th Floor 1 Bed with Balcony 2600 per month. Currently a very good view of Manhattan over to the 59th street Bridge. Amish Markets coming in February." [CurbedWire Inbox]
