New, 5 comments

GRAMERCY PARK—Next week, architecture appreciation society MASNYC will lead a Dvorak-themed tour of the Czech composer's New York haunts in honor of the 118th anniversary of the premiere of "From the New World" at Carnegie Hall. $15 gets a peek at the 1890s-era environs of Stuyvesant Square and Gramercy Park with Francis Morrone, architectural historian.

FLATBUSH—A community group called Sustainable Flatbush is aiming to make this weekend a zero-waste one. Neighbors can bring leaves to be composted (a service the city no longer provides), recycle electronics, and bring compost to the Cortelyou Greenmarket. [CurbedWire Inbox]

CHELSEA—We hear from a tipster that changes are a-comin' to 309 West 23rd Street, right above Dallas BBQ. He/she writes, "Looks like the United Cerebral Palsy tenant has left and the space is being gutted...3 floors of commercial space and all of it is being torn up for renovations. I think this building is owned by the Penn South Cooperative so likely not gonna knock the building down but wondering who the new tenant(s) may be and if it will turn retail." Any guesses?
