CurbedWire: Countering 2forty, Greenpoint Bed Bugs, More

GRAMERCY?Countertop porn? You know it! Over at God-given 2forty Park, a tipster spotted this scene during his lunch hour (above). [CurbedWire Inbox]

INWOOD?Some follow-up reader intel regarding that rumored 28-story condo building on Broadway and Sherman: I think they PLANNED on a high rise, but could not swing the zoning variance...The garage shut down, kicked out all the monthly space renters, but re-opened with a new paint job and New Mnagement!!! We rented a slot and were told (in spanish, no english here) that we were good for at least two years....Nothing happens quickly in Inwood/WaHi." How true. [CurbedWire Inbox]

GREENPOINT?Also via the Inbox: "If you’re familiar with The Astral bldg (right) in Greenpoint, you know it’s a beauty. I live a block away and overheard a mob of angry tenants talking to (probably) the super about their bed bug nightmare. Apparently the entire building has been overtaken by bed bugs, reportedly by these angry tenants, these critters are in every unit of this building. Gross!" [CurbedWire Inbox]

WEST VILLAGE?I'm a neighborhood super. The deli guy around the corner tipped me to this. Addresses involved: 707 – 711 Washington Street. Boutique Hotel. Supposedly a resident was bought-out for $2 mil. He has posted a sign in his window, looking to spend up to $6,200 a month on a loft space in the neighborhood. Don't have details, but I checked the NYC building info system, and it seems that some permits have been pulled. One to keep an eye on. Not sure they'll be able to go too vertical with the new zoning, but nothing would surprise me." Developing... [CurbedWire Inbox]
