New, 9 comments

MIDTOWN?This car went up in smoke at 49th and Fifth over the weekend. The tipster who sends the pic writes: "Weird. One week after a cab blew up outside St Pats, a Town Car goes up on the same block." [CurbedWire Inbox]

CHELSEA?Well, one hotel mystery has been solved. "The hotel that has been under construction for a looooong time on the north side of 26th street between 6th and 7th got its sign this week... we're proud to welcome a new Holiday Inn to our neighborhood. The lot under construction on the south side of the same block is going to be hotel also, which a broker for the adjacent building told us will likely be a Four Seasons. We didn't really believe him then (The Four Seasons Chelsea?), but what are the chances of that now??!!" [CurbedWire Inbox]

WEST VILLAGE?Uh, stay away from the Sex and the City townhouse on Perry Street. Or not. Per a reader: "I was walking my dog yesterday down Perry Street, past the "Sex and the City" townhouse and lo and behold, there was an obnoxious chain across the steps to the townhouse with a sign that said if you sat on the steps you were TRESPASSING. I guess in order to get your photo there, you have to pay to get on the SATC tour and pay your 30 bucks. It is the first time I have seen a chain like that up in the W. Village, having lived here for many years." [CurbedWire Inbox]
