It's Part 2 of our look at big happenings on East 7th Street between Avenues C and D, and, well, here's the thing: we've taken some shots at the Flowerbox Building before. With its precious website, its overly sappy origin tale and its $10,000,000 apartments in the midst of housing projects, can you really blame us? But they've unveiled the facade and planted the boxes at 259 East 7th Street, and damn it, this building turned out gorgeous. And for a little more crow on our plate, the units have all gone to contract. Of course, our opinion will change if some owners slack on their gardening duties, but a tipster reports that the greenery looks to be self-irrigating. Effort-free environmentalism: gotta love it!
