GREENWICH VILLAGE?This week marked 50 years since the original Pennsylvania Station was demolished, and to commemorate it, the Architect's Institute of America is hosting a play and panel at the Center for Architecture. There will be a reading of selected scenes from Justin Rivers' play about the stations demolition, The Eternal Space, followed by a panel discussion involving photographers, historians, preservationists and urbanists intimate with the station's history and its possibly future. The event takes places place next Wednesday, and you can reserve a (free!) space here. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

UPPER EAST SIDE?The long-stalled condo building the Charles returned to the living world earlier this year, and sales launched October 1. Contracts have been signed for 24 percent of the 30 units, all of which are full-floor homes. Ismael Leyva Architects designed the building, and David Collins Studio did the interiors. The four-bedroom, 4,541-square-foot duplex penthouse is among the units that are already in contract. It was listed for $16.5 million. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
