Save an LES Synagogue; Red Hook's Fairway Reopens

New, 7 comments

LOWER EAST SIDE?Even though it's landmarked, a 163-year-old religious institution at 60 Norfolk Street may soon get demolished. The synagogue itself, named Beth Hamedrash Hagodol, submitted an application to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for a hardship permit, which, if granted, would allow it to be razed and for a luxury condo to rise in its place. You can sign a petition opposing the hardship permit application here, put together by Friends of the Lower East Side. [CurbedWire Inbox]

RED HOOK?The Fairway in Red Hook has officially reopened this morning after extensive post-Sandy repairs, with Miss America cutting the ribbon and Mayor Mike bearing witness. Near the beloved grocer, the Red Hook Lobster Pound also reopened, and that's where the mayor stopped for a bite. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

MIDTOWN/MIDTOWN WEST?We were so right. The slow, slow upward progress of 432 Park Avenue, which will be the tallest residential building in the city when it's complete (someday!) is captivating construction-watchers. We got sent this photo (right) by a tipster earlier today, and for those craving more, the building itself has hired a photographer to document 432's creation, plus there are livestreaming cameras aimed at the site, too. Eventually, 432 Park will reach 1,397 feet in height... and it's currently hit about seven stories. Settle in for a long wait, folks. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
