New, 8 comments

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS?Three new tree-like sculptures have landed in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Created by Oscar Tuazon and presented by the Public Art Fund, the towering artworks invite interaction with the public. One includes a cement box with a tree growing out of it that's meant to be a shaded resting place, another is a spring with flowing water, and the third is a tree trunk that holds a basketball hoop and anchors a handball wall. They are located on Piers 1 and 2 and will be on display through April of next year. [Curbedwire Inbox; Public Art Fund]

CHELSEA?It's been nearly a year since RXR Realty picked up the Starrett-Lehigh building, and now they are welcoming a fun new tenant: CSI! Probably not the CSI you're thinking of, but still an interesting company nonetheless. This CSI is the Center for Social Innovation, a company that creates shared workspaces for "innovators, entrepreneurs, enterprises and non-profits working to make the world a better place." CSI will lease 24,000 square feet of space in the building, which encompasses an entire city block between 26th and 27th Streets and 11th and 12th Avenues. CSI's space will hold up to 5,000 people and open this winter. [Curbedwire Inbox; official]
