CurbedWire: Sizing Up a Heights Newcomer, iTri Smack Talk

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS?A tipster has the scoopage on new Brooklyn Heights condo conversion 20 Henry (at 20 Henry Street, 'natch), which was formally the Peaks Mason Mints building, constructed in 1929. The two-building setup has prices "slightly over $1,100/sqft," we're told, with common charges at about $1/sqft. Our tipster isn't impressed, noting the absence of private outdoor space (except for penthouses), the elementary school across the way, the lack of a garage and "no views at most levels, unless you're a gigantic off-ramp fan." Which we are, thankyouverymuch. Here's the website. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WILLETS POINT?So, Queens Borough President Helen Marshall approves of Mayor Bloomberg's Iron Triangle redevelopment plan, and the Willets Point Industry and Realty Association?made of businesses who refuse to sell their land to the city?have responded with trademark flair. The beginning of their latest press release: "Mayor Bloomberg is kidding himself if he thinks this reckless land grab is going anywhere other than the same place as his plans for a West Side stadium and the Olympics -- the scrap heap of bad ideas." Zing! This is going to be one exciting eminent domain battle, no? [CurbedWire Inbox]
