UPPER WEST SIDE?With rumors of brokerages' demise (both real and unfounded) routinely making the rounds, and layoffs now a common occurrence, small firms need to go on the offensive if they hope to survive. We recommend the two step plan just implemented by Upper West Side boutique brokerage Rand Realty: 1) Start a blog with an amusing pun for its name. 2) While e-mailing us about said blog, casually mention your branded SmartCar. Oh, 1a) Get a branded SmartCar. [CurbedWire Inbox]

SOHO?Due to market conditions, we've been getting many e-mails questioning whether a project has stalled out, including this one about Trump Soho: "Possible gossip, certainly speculation. But the crane is gone, there is no curtain wall installed on the upper few stories of the building, its been going on forever or so it seems. Is there trouble at the corner of spring and varick? Heard anything? I did see the bentley a month to six weeks ago." Yes, we heard it's going to be hoooge. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WORLD TRADE CENTER?So we signed up for those text message updates from the Port Authority regarding WTC progress, and it's paying off already. From this afternoon: "The signature ramp at the WTC site will be removed beginning this weekend to make way for continued rebuilding of the project." Sweet! City Room has much more on the Liberty Street ramp's removal. [TextWire]
