MIDTOWN EAST?The twisty, curvy, topsy-turvy skyscraper sculptures by artist Alexandre Arrechea (above, the Helmsley Building) went up along Park Avenue's median strips this weekend. A prime public art spot for years now, these pedestrian malls in the middle of the avenue are now home to his "No Limits" project, which consists of creatively reimagined replicas of the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Sherry-Netherland Building, and more. They're all for sale, and on view till June 9. Click here for a map of the installation so you can find your favorite. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

CITYWIDE?A tipser-slash-blogger, Streeter Seidell, emailed us a map he created. It breaks down the city's neighborhoods as delineated by Craigslist's rather aspirationally labeled real estate listings. So Roosevelt Island is Midtown East, Crown Heights is swallowed by Prospect Heights, and anything northwest of Central Park is dubbed "Columbia." We've seen this kinda thing before, but nonetheless... we chuckled. [CurbedWire Inbox]

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS?A 38-unit condo residence, Love Lane Mews was converted from a former garage. After some hiccups at the start of sales, the property managed to set a per-square-foot record for its penthouse. And now there's only one unit left, a 3BR/3.5BA listed at $3.795 million.
