Mark di Suvero's Dreamcatcher; Gehry's Hot Pink Window

GOVERNORS ISLAND?It's almost August! That means you're running out of days to hop on the ferry and frolic in the sunshine on Governors Island. Mark di Suvero created a dramatic new sculpture, Dreamcatcher, that's being displayed to the public for the first time on the island. It soars 50 feet into the air and is located at Picnic Point, so you can enjoy the lovely waterfront vistas, too. [Curbedwire Inbox; official]

FINANCIAL DISTRICT?A tipster writes in to tell us about the window shade rules of New York by Gehry: "The management is near-militant with what can and can't be used in windows. Black-out shades, for example, have to be from a specific manufacturer and in a specific shade of gray, as to keep the facades uniform, I suppose." But! There is one rogue tenant toward the top of the building: "If you look at the east facade of the building, you'll notice one window toward the top of the building that is hot, hot pink. I can't tell if it's a shade or if they spray painted it or what, but it sticks out from Brooklyn. Hilarious." We are now on the hunt to glimpse said pink window. [Curbedwire Inbox]

JAMAICA?The Greater Jamaica Development Corporation and MTA have issued an RFP for a 10,000-square-foot site near JFK airport. The site is at the northeast corner of Sutphin Boulevard and 94th Avenue in downtown Jamaica, and they are looking for commercial or hospitality projects that will promote economic growth. The land is a remediated brownfield site and located adjacent to Jamaica Station. [Curbedwire Inbox; official]
