EAST VILLAGE?With last weekend's crane collapse causing New Yorkers to look up nervously whenever they pass by a construction site, we point your attention to the big, scary crane that is working on the Ukrainian-conquering Cooper Union building. Writes a tipster: "Cooper Union representatives have hinted to us that they expect to be topping off concrete pouring within 7-8 weeks. Frank Sciame must be one hell of a task-master." And how would you like to be that guy standing on the edge? We peed our pants just looking at this picture. [CurbedWire Inbox]

FLATIRON?240 Park Avenue South, also known as the God-given 2forty, is?shall we say?a minor work in the Gwathmey Siegal canon. As such, some don't feel too bad about desecrating the new condo building. Writes a tipster, "Just a final touch to the façade and the folks can move in!" [CurbedWire Inbox]

WEST CHELSEA?Some news now about Annabelle Selldorf's contribution to Starchitect Row along West 19th Street: "520 West Chelsea has just closed on all but 2 of their apartments. The last of the two $10 million apiece penthouses is available and one other unit." [CurbedWire Inbox]
