CHELSEA?The CORE Group is really ramping up the marketing at The Cammeyer, the converted loft building previously known as 650 Sixth Avenue and 50 West 20th Street. Tonight the brokerage is throwing a party to unveil the condo building's common roof deck. Photo above, but some real Ladies' Mile scenery can be seen in the bigger shot after the jump.

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS?Now that Brooklyn Bridge Park is in the fast lane, One Brooklyn Bridge Park, the condo building right smack in the future park, is enjoying renewed attention. How is it responding? With a redesigned website, of course. New characters, like "Cynthia the socialite" and a power couple, illustrate just how sweet life in a former Jehovah's Witness printing plant can be. []

BROOKLYN?Film director Darren Aronofsky made a comment at the Stoli Film Pioneer Awards that the only "pioneering spirit" he had growing up was to get out of Brooklyn. This got picked up by the press, and the opportunity proved too juicy for Brooklyn cheerleader Marty Markowitz to pass up. His office just sent out a media blast with Marko's response: "Judging by his age, Darren Aronofsky was probably one of the last young Brooklyn artists to want to leave our borough—these days, for talented young people from every corner of the globe, 'hitting the big time' in music, visual art, writing and yes, independent film, means coming to Brooklyn! At least we know from his art that he's inspired by Brooklyn, which is still proud home to his parents!" [CurbedWire Inbox]
