New, 5 comments

WILLIAMSBURG?Bigfoot spotted on Berry Street last night! Yeesh, and we thought Professor Thom's had a Lost obsession. [CurbedWire Inbox]

GRAMERCY?Remember how awesome Rem Koolhaas's cantilevering building at 23 East 22nd Street was before the economy killed it and its big bro One Madison Park got swept out to a sea of lawsuits? No? Well the website is surprisingly still around, and don't worry about that password protection, a tipster writes: I went to check out the website for my favorite defunct building that stalled out (hopefully not forever), and I was pissed because you cannot proceed into the actual site without first entering a username and password. I typed in a bunch of things at random, and then tried an old web developers trick that they use during the testing phase of web site development. Yup, simply entering the word 'test' for both fields and hitting 'submit' gives you full entry into the entire website. Heh. Anyway, it's cool that the site is still available? maybe that means the building may someday actually happen. Hope so." Don't stop...belieeeeeevin'. [CurbedWire Inbox]
