New, 16 comments

LONG ISLAND CITY?Our Long Island City obsession, gas station turned coffee shop The Breadbox Café, is finally?finally?installing its rolling pins facade today at 6 p.m. And they've gotten all do-gooder about it, too. The red carpet event will benefit an education charity, and "doughners" can purchase personalized "doughstix" that will be installed on the facade. Long Island City: Getting it done. Eventually.

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN?To those who doubt the PriceChopper as the ultimate sales Viagra, we say this: The discounted zombie building be@schermerhorn, at 189 Schermerhorn Street, has sold 123 of its 246 apartments in four months, according to reps (closings haven't kicked off yet, however). Checking our abacus, that's 50%! Prices average under $600/sqft in the building, which is pretty darn low for new construction in the area. [CurbedWire Inbox]
