New, 2 comments

RED HOOK—Despite the official arrival of spring to match the great weather we've been having, the city has closed 4 of the natural grass fields at Red Hook's Ballfields after discovering elevated lead levels in the soil. Fields 5, 6, 7, and 8 at Red Hook Park will be closed for the next 6-8 weeks after clay is laid down and grass is regrown. [Curbedwire Inbox]

CHELSEA—Chelsea's Carriage House conversion project at 159 West 24th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues welcomed its first resident this week after receiving a temporary certificate of occupancy. The former Curbed Arrested Development project is now approaching 50% of its units in contract. We wonder which one of those early purchasers won use of the classic car that the developer was dangling as a sales inducement. [Curbedwire Inbox; previously]
