New, 13 comments

FiDi?The Battery Park Sea Glass Carousel must be making progress. At least, the model of the carousel is. A tipster sent this photo of a new model that has appeared, writing "I walked by 1 new york plaza at lunch and saw this new model of the carousel they're planning to build. it looks fantastic. the one large turntable has 3 smaller ones inside that also revolve. it really is beautiful. i wonder how much it costs!" The original Sea Glass Carousel was priced at $12 million. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURG?Work is starting on the building at 53 Broadway across the street from the Gretsch Building. Per an email: "Construction is imminent on the 7-story condo/retail building in the vacant lot next to Marlow & Sons. Heavy machinery has been put in place and a construction fence has been partially erected since Monday and painted blue. Work permits allow for construction starting at 7 a.m., which will surely annoy many Gretsch Building residents across the street." [CurbedWire Inbox]

GREENWICH VILLAGE?The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation sends word that the South Village Historic District is moving forward. The area west of Sixth Avenue is being studied first by the Landmarks Commission. [CurbedWire Inbox]
