CurbedWire: Trump Place Vacancies, Secret Subway Reveal?

New, 35 comments

NOHO?And now, the latest from our increasingly busy Secret Tunnels Department. A tipster writes, "These pics were taken Friday of the hidden subway tunnel at Houston and Mulberry. The MTA is renovating it, and hopes to open it soon. It's under the parking lot where the Adidas store and Bank of America now resides. Once, it was totally paved over. Goes down 3 levels or more." Spelunkers, grab your flashlights! [CurbedWire Inbox]

UPPER WEST SIDE?Do renewing renters at Trump Place have any leverage? Yes, according to a rumormongering tipster: "Rumor has it that something like 25% (or more) of the apartments in Trump Place (140, 160 and 180 Riverside Boulevard on the west side) are vacant. Yet in a desperate attempt to renew leases of existing tenants at the exorbitant rent levels of 2006-2007-2008, Equity Residential is maintaining that business is great (!), and apartments are holding their value (!) ... and that vacancies are at less than 5%."
