CurbedWire: 15 CPW Ruined, New School Delay, Hell is Hot!

COLUMBUS CIRCLE?A tipster sends along the above photo and points out, in horror, that someone at 15 Central Park West is using "paper shades." Why not serve foie gras on paper plates while you're at it? [CurbedWire Inbox]

CENTRAL VILLAGE?The controversial proposed New School building at 65 Fifth Avenue is a little slow out of the gate. Reports a tipster, "The latest on the New School building at 65 5th Ave: Demolition has been pushed back 6 months from June 2008 to December '08/January '09. Nobody's surprised, but there was cautious optimism that the project would be on time. They still say 5 years from demolition to new building." If the GVSHP doesn't derail it, of course.

HELL'S KITCHEN?The only reason anyone ever pays attention to Hell's Kitchen is when two hoodlums try to cash a dead guy's social security check with the corpse parked on the sidewalk, but there's so much more going on in the neighborhood. Did you know that The 505, on West 47th Street, is 90% sold, and the last batch of units (1BRs from $699,000; 2BR penthouses with private roof decks from $1.395M) are now being released? Huh, DID YOU? [CurbedWire Inbox]
