Urban Exploration Events; The Centurion is 80% Sold

New, 2 comments

NEW YORK CITY?The Obscura Society is delving into some lesser-known parts of New York City with a few urban exploration events. On July 14, there will be a 1.5 mile tour of the city's historic sewer systems along the old Minetta block to the Hudson River, followed by a shorter walk along canal street. Don't worry, the walk is above ground, not in the sewer. If that's not your thing, you can discover the lost waterfronts of New York on July 27. Explorer/photographer extraordinaire Nathan Kensinger will be sharing his photographs and talking about the changing waterfront. [Curbedwire Inbox]

MIDTOWN?The Centurion, located at 33 West 56th Street, announced that it is 80 percent sold and closed, with only 11 residences and the three penthouses remaining. Despite being designed by starchitect I.M. Pei, the condo building has kept things calm and flown somewhat under-the-radar. To help sell the penthouses, they recently unveiled a few design and layout ideas. [Curbedwire Inbox; previously]
