High Line's Latest Art Thing; Sales Update at LIC's View

MEPA/CHELSEA?Tonight marks the debut of the latest High Line art installation, Richard Galpin's Viewing Station. Take it away, High Line Blog: "A new interactive public art exhibit that offers abstracted views of buildings and streetscapes adjacent to the High Line. Viewing Station invites park visitors to peek into a view finder that aligns with a screen cut with geometric shapes. The resulting view emphasizes neighboring buildings' texture and color." That's the, uh, rendering above. It'll be between 17th and 18th Streets through spring 2011. [High Line Blog]

LONG ISLAND CITY?The View. It needs no introduction. Here's the latest: The building's newish broker Nest Seekers International sent out a press release saying they "completed close to 40 new sales" in the waterfront building. "with prices ranging from close to $700 per square foot to well over $1,000 per square foot." [CurbedWire Inbo]
