FIDI?So what's new with the dead-and-reborn-maybe 254 Front Street near the Seaport? It's a winter wonderland! Other than that, not much going on. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WEST VILLAGE?A Superior Ink tipster writes in with some dirt on another buyer in the latest fancypants sensation: "Another tidbit about a buyer who closed recently: Mark Shuttleworth. He is one of South Africa's richest men who paid $20M to fly in space with the Russians. I believe he's only the 2nd civilian ever to fly in space. He's reportedly worth upwards of $1 billion! Anyway, heard his apt came in at over $16 million, and his pad approaches nearly 5,000 sq ft, with a terrace almost equal to that size." CurbedWire Inbox]

FIDI?We love 2 Gold Street, we really do. We also love this e-mail about the hot-to-trot rental tower: "Within the span of 24 hours these events occurred in 2 gold street. Copy and pasted the text from the internal bboard for lost and found. Redacted apartment numbers and names, but event #1 happened to me and I'm a little pissed. Only one explanation, peg-legged right-footed naked pirate?"

Our correspondent continues:

Event #1 (my own post!)
"This is going to sound great but please bear with me here.
I live on the ## floor and kept my soaked sneakers in the hallway overnight in order for them to dry. In the morning, only my left sneaker remained. If anyone has seen the sneaker or is responsible for taking it please leave it on my door or hand it over to the building staff? No questions asked. It is a red and white adidas cross trainer. Right foot."

Event #2 (some other unlucky sap)

"Whoever took my laundry from a large dryer on 12/21 between 6:30-9:00pm: If you start to feel bad about it could you leave the 75% of the laundry load that you took in the laundry room sometime soon. I'll be checking."
