EAST VILLAGE?Note the red arrow up top. A concerned local writes, "Condos rising from the projects? Or is Kent Ave really Ave E? I was walking my dog through Tompkins Square Park this morning, and through the leafless tree branches I saw what appeared to be a condo rising amongst the projects of the East River. After decades of rumors, could it be true? Here's a shot from 9th St. and Ave. B." For the thrilling conclusion to this tale, check out the reveal after the jump. [CurbedWire Inbox]
CURRY HILL? "There's been a non-stop high pitched ringing sound for months at a time. The city has taken complaints, and the local Police dept. have gone out on calls, but the same ringing just returns again. You don't have to be a dog to hear it. It's especially loud at the corner of 26th and Lexington between the Armory Building and Baruch College. The ringing was originally thought to have been coming from the construction machinery at the 'hotel' project next door to Baruch, but now that it's returned, who knows? There is more construction further up Lexington. Would be great if you gave this some coverage, since this can't be good for residents eardrums." Mmmkay. [CurbedWire Inbox]
"Here she is, as seen from the beautiful new East River Park promenade, Northside Piers! I know Williamsburgers are sensitive about their 'one stop from the East Village' status, but this can't help."
