HARLEM?A big fan of our #signs page writes in with this photo of a very private matter written on the wall of the southernmost exit of the 2/3 subway stop up at 110th Street/Central Park North. "Walked past a few times and thought, Lorraine needs some serious help getting the word out." Hang in there, Lorraine. [CurbedWire Inbox]
WILLIAMSBURG?A tipster writes, "I am lucky enough to live across the street from Williamsburg's premier luxury construction site, The Edge. Last night they resorted to illegal permit-less nighttime construction and cut off the water supply to the surrounding buildings without notice. Dept of Bldgs and DEP are looking into it, but still, welcome to the neighborhood." DOB shows one complaint about the matter, but it has yet to be inspected. Hey Williamsburg, ya got water? [CurbedWire Inbox] Update: A commenter says DEP is the water culprit. The plot thickens! Double Update: And The Edge has a special permit for its after-hours pounding, so take that, neighbor!
TIMES SQUARE?And now, a Curbed public service announcement. Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at Broadway and 45th Street (by the Sunglass Hut), a Park Avenue cosmetic surgeon will lead "dozens of angry protesters" in a rally against Congress's proposed cosmetic surgery tax. Or as the press release puts it, "RALLY AND PROTEST AGAINST THE BOOB JOB AND BOTOX TAX IN CENTER OF BROADWAY THIS SUNDAY." As you were. [CurbedWire Inbox]
