COLUMBUS CIRCLE?The extreme facade facelift at Newsweek's old haunt of 1775 Broadway, rebranded as 3 Columbus Circle, is coming along. The latest, via a special Curbed tipster: Check out that entrance! [CurbedWire Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURG?Last winter, Williamsburg's waterfront East River State Park was temporarily closed to save $40,000. With the state eying cuts to park services to save money this year, it would've been a natural thought to assume ERSP could be on the chopping block again. But wait! Assemblyman Joe Lentol announced today that the Northside's patch of green will not be a victim of budget cuts, in part because of revenue generated by the recently-saved summer concert series known to one and all as the Pool Parties. And who said hipsters are good for nothin'? [CurbedWire Inbox]

UPPER WEST SIDE?A Curbed tipster thinks there's an unannounced superpenthouse-in-the-making at Extell's "21st century pre-war' blockbuster: "I was walking by the new development at 535 West End Avenue (the one with the massive full floor spreads) which is almost done. I counted the number of floors and noticed that the highest full floor apt they have listed (#19), has two more full floors on top of it which are the only apts in the buildings not listed yet. This leads me to believe that those two top floors plus whatever space there is on the roof is reserved for the penthouse which will be ... 13,000 square feet + more!!! I think that's gotta be the largest apartment I've ever seen in nyc, I wonder if Extell is waiting for the market to clear up before listing it... if any takers come. Otherwise they will probably split it up into 2 separate full floors." [CurbedWire Inbox]
