FINANCIAL DISTRICT?The pool deck at 20 Pine - The Collection has become a microcosm of the delays at the building, so we're happy that a Curbed tipster is keeping an eye on the situation. The latest: pool wall built! [CurbedWire Inbox]
COLUMBUS CIRCLE?While The Plaza was busy nearly killing its few-and-far-between occupants, 15 Central Park West?its rival in mega-luxury?could only laugh. In fact, nary a bad word has ever been uttered about 15 CPW. Which is probably why so many people are lining up to badmouth the building following PaperShadeGate. They've been so repressed! The latest: "Not only are there paper shades at CPW, but there is a broken window too. It's on the Broadway side about 7 or 8 floors up. uhg-ghly!" Heaven forbid! [CurbedWire Inbox]
WILLIAMSBURG?Today, the sales office for Edge opens, marking a major test for the new Williamsburg. But the old Williamsburg is not going quietly. Check out this e-mail: "It's Williamsburg not BILLYBURG, ETC ANYONE FROM BROOKLYN WOULD NEVER SAY THAT!"
"OK HAVING BEEN BORN AND RAISED IN WILLIAMSBURG FOR THE LAST 32 YRS I FEEL I SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY THAN OTHERS NOT ORIGINALLY FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD. IT’S AMAZING, FROM THE 'CLEANERS AND SALES' COMPANY THAT USE TO BE LOCATED ON KENT AVE AND MY FIRST JOB OUT OF HS TO NOW BEING TURNED INTO THE EDGE’S SALES OFFICE. I WONDER IF THE OWNER LESTER COHEN IS STILL ALIVE?????????????" Indeed. Indeed. [CurbedWire Inbox]
