CENTRAL VILLAGE—Following up on this morning's clarification about the
brick attack bulge at co-op 2 Fifth Avenue, a special correspondent dropped by to assay the scene. Noted (above): a new sidewalk shed going up, and plastic wrap of some variety affixed to an upper level of the building. Let's all feel safer together! [CurbedWire]
EAST VILLAGE—Our blogging comrade EV Grieve, about whose guest editing stint at Curbed we'll have more to say tomorrow—hits us with this update: "Too often, we only seem to be reporting on abandoned or stalled construction projects. However, over in the East Village, there’s one building making steady, noticeable progress. The six-story townhouse at 238 E. 4th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B—at the site of a former one-level construction company—continues its upward march. Perhaps that's due to the presence of the super-awesome Bob and Cortney Novogratz, who are designing and developing the 3,000-square-foot penthouse for the new townhouse's top two floors; asking $4 million. The next time we look, we'll expect to see someone moving in." [CurbedWire]
