Curbed Week in Review: Gehry Value Engineered, Alice Tully Hall Revealed, Astroland Rocket Takes Off, Half-Off at 20 Pine, More

And now, before you settle into you Saturday routine, here's a look at some of our favorite Curbed posts of the week:

1) Prospect Heights: It looks like Frank Gehry has been value engineered out of designing Atlantic Yards as the developer tries to salvage the troubled project by drastically cutting costs.

2) UWS: The more glassy and user-friendly Alice Tully Hall will be reopening at Lincoln Center in February and we got a look at the major changes to the 1,087-seat performance venue.

3) Coney Island: The removal of the iconic Astroland Park Rocket was probably the most dramatic symbol yet of the slow death of the historic amusement park.

4) FiDi: Buy 80 units at 20 Pine and get half off. It's that simple.

5) Chelsea: We don't have all the details but the hotel being built at 835 Sixth Avenue (between 29th & 30th Streets) will be more than a hotel and will be a Kimpton.

6) Tribeca: What the hell is that thing on top of 78-80 Leonard Street. We don't know but it looks like architectural origami.
