FiDi?Our man on the street Will Femia snapped the above photo of the sales office for the Shvo-marketed W New York Downtown, the coming hotel-condo at 123 Washington Street. The sales office is around the corner at 90 West Street, which Femia notes used to be Moran's steakhouse before 9/11. Oh, that Femia. [CurbedWire Inbox]

CHELSEA?A reader had this amusing follow-up to a Times story today about a couple who renovated their 400sf Chelsea apartment on the cheap by themselves: "Isn't some of this work illegal to do if you're not a licensed plumber or electrician? Check out the audio slideshow -- there is wiring in a closet stuck behind a wooden panel (not metal, which I believe is required)." Surely the Times wouldn't be condoning illegal behavior!

I am a broker that specializes in a very exciting area of nyc: murray hill. this midtown east neighborhood is going to be one of the most exciting new neighborhoods in nyc." And how!
