CHELSEA?Our item yesterday regarding rental listings at Chelsea's Onyx (right) may have been a little misleading. Corcoran broker Joseph Bongiovanni explains: "Having sold out the Onyx Chelsea myself, I can tell you it is, in fact, sold out. A few condo owners who bought and closed are renting out their units. The 'For Rent' sign is for the commercial space. For the record, the Onyx never stalled although there was a slight delay of putting up the façade. It is an awards-winning façade designed by the highly acclaimed FXFowle." [CurbedWire Inbox]

FAR WEST VILLAGE?Regarding The Jane hotel (that's the official name, not Jane Hotel) and its gritty renovation, an inside source has this to say: "The Jane is actually being carefully and beautifully restored by Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode, not renovated. They are taking every precaution in restoring the NYC landmark hotel into a stylish, yet affordable place to stay." [CurbedWire Inbox]

SOMEWHERE IN QUEENS?Smokey Oval Park is already an awesome name, but tomorrow the patch of green will be renamed in honor of late Yankee great Phil "Scooter" Rizzuto, who grew up in nearby Glendale. According to the Parks Department, "The park has been known as Smokey Oval since it opened in 1938, but it was officially named in 1987. The name refers to the park’s location across from a Long Island Railroad terminus, which once made it a landing area of soot and ash from the railway smoke." [CurbedWire Inbox]
