Harlem's Vicious Circle, Williamsburg's Anticipated Sequel

New, 10 comments

HARLEM?Now that Frederick Douglass Boulevard has been dubbed Harlem's Gold Coast, it's time for folks to lodge their complaints! Writes one reader about the long-in-the-works Frederick Douglass Circle street project at the NW corner of Central Park that occasionally almost wraps up: "It's been 6 years and I'd like to know what they accomplished in those 6 years. As for me, in those 6 years, I bought 2 condo units, got married, traveled across Russia, got a dog and cat, completed a few work related projects in Africa, had a baby, and got a masters degree and PhD. I also saw at least 10 new buildings go up in the area, the opening of Whole Foods, and the gentrification of Harlem." Frederick Douglass Circle, you just got served! [CurbedWIre Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURG?The first Northside Piers tower has given us so much over the years, so it's weird that the Toll Brothers' Northside Piers 2 on the Williamsburg waterfront has been all but ignored. No longer! A tipster writes: "I attended the Tower 2 model residences unveiling at Northside Piers. They were showing a 1 bedroom apt and a 2 bedroom apt, both on the 15th floor. A construction worker told me they would be finished in April 2010. Both looked great." We'll have more on NP2 next week. [CurbedWire Inbox]
