BATTERY PARK CITY?A portion of the sales banners wrapping the scaffolding at eco-friendly Battery Park City sister buildings Liberty Luxe and Liberty Green was recently covered. One tipster thinks he knows why: "One of the marketing photos showed the face of a woman covered by a green apple. I guess this was too similar to Magritte's 'Son of Man,' as the signs are now covered." If that's really the case, Magritte needs to take a chill pill! And get to a doctor, because he's been dead for 40 years. [CurbedWire Inbox]

MIDTOWN?The foundation is poured and we've been waiting for Extell's gargantuan Carnegie 57 to get going. But a special Curbed correspondent says the construction crew told him steel won't start rising until August due to some delays. We're betting the neighbors wouldn't mind additional delays.

GOVERNORS ISLAND?Governors Island sold for $1 last week. Well, sorta. The deed was transferred between agencies, following the island's switch from state to city rule. We would have happily bid $2. [CurbedWire Staff]
