Week in Review: Full Wave on Mulberry, Strippers vs. Kids, Real World Working Out, Gehry Booted, More

New, 5 comments

1) Nolita: SHoP Architect's 290 Mulberry is now doing a full-on wave, and with much of the somewhat controversial façade in place, it's looking pretty darned good.

2) Chelsea: The proposed Sapphire Strip Club at Eleventh Avenue and 23rd Street will have excellent views of the nearby playground. Will the strippers or the little ones win?

3) Around Brooklyn: The Real World Brooklyn cast apparently likes to work out. For instance, at the Crunch in Fort Greene and at the one in Park Slope.

4) Midtown: The old Cheyenne Diner, which will be moving to Red Hook, was brought back to life this week. Alas, it was only a movie shoot.

5) Fort Greene: It's not so much that Frank Gehry is off the job at Theater for a New Audience, it's that he found out about when a reporter called to ask him about he felt about being dropped from the project.

6) Williamsburg: Will the Burg eventually succumb and become "a bedroom community" if it loses things like free outdoor summer concerts? Hmm?
