Visions of a New Prospect Park Gateway; Spitzer Escort to Soho?

New, 13 comments

PARK SLOPE?The Park Slope Civic Council has announced the winner of the competition to design a new Prospect Park Gateway at 3rd Street, replacing the metal barricades that block the road now (the entrance was closed to traffic a while back but emergency-service vehicles still need access). The winning entry, Jordan Yamada's and Peter Zaharatos's Stone Garden, is seen above, as are the two runners-up. There's no guarantee the winning design will be built, but the Civic Council is "looking forward to exploring these concepts further for the Third Street entrance to Prospect Park."

SOHO?All this talk about where Tiger Woods's mistress #1 wound up. What about Client #9's illicit ladyfriend?! According to a very in-the-know Curbed correspondent, Ashley Dupre, she of Eliot Spitzer downfall fame, has just moved to "Sullivan btwn Prince and Houston- not gonna say bldg # but its a walk up... and not luxury." Guess she could've used some Uchitel-style hush money. [CurbedWire Inbox]
