Rally to Save Bowery History; Village House Getting Novogratz'd

New, 3 comments

EAST VILLAGE?A small but spirited crowd turned out for a rally this afternoon to save 35 Cooper Square, the old Federal-style Bowery house (built in 1826 and one of the last of a dying breed) that was bought with an adjacent lot for $8.5 million. Preservationists want the building landmarked, and at least one local leader is on board. [CurbedWire Staff]

GREENWICH VILLAGE?It was recently reported that Bob and Cortney Novogratz, the townhouse designers/flippers/reality TV stars, would be working their magic on 16 Minetta Lane, the, how to put this, attention-grabbing charmer once owned by late celebrity party planner Robert Isabel. A tipster writes things might soon be underway: "Wondering if you heard about last night’s Novogratz party at the now empty 16 Minetta Lane? Not sure what it was for even though I went – cameras everywhere, had to sign a release form for filming in order to get in. That place sure needs a ton of work but it could really be a gem if it were done nicely." [CurbedWire Inbox]
