WILLIAMSBURG?NV, the funky pile of green glass that sprung from the mind of architect Karl Fischer and landed at 101 North 5th Street, once boasted of strong sales in the face of total Williamsburg annihilation. Apparently the hot streak continued, because a press release from post-merger building brokers The Developers Group/The Real Estate Group of NY says the 40-unit building is now 85% sold. Details: "All of the remaining two-bedroom residences include private balconies or terraces. Each home features 11-foot-high ceilings with nine foot windows, and elegant kitchens and baths. Aggressively priced for today's market, the remaining two bedrooms start at $659,000." [CurbedWire Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURG?Senator Chuck Schumer is on the case of saving the Pool Parties on the Williamsburg waterfront, meeting with the New York State Parks Department among others to hammer out a deal. Why do we mention this? Because we love the Schumer quote in the Save the Pool Parties release: "As I was riding my bike through Williamsburg this summer, I came upon the Pool Parties and was inspired and energized by the huge crowds who came to see the concerts." That's right, Chuck Schumer: recreational Kent Avenue bike lane user! [CurbedWire Inbox]
