Landmark Park Slope Launches Teaser Site; Worst NYC Park

New, 10 comments

PARK SLOPE?Last fall, we found out the name of the new Karl Fischer-designed building at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Sixth Street (which was for a time dunzo but then mysteriously resurrected itself): Landmark Park Slope. And stop the presses, folks, (or the internet goblins) because five months later, we've got ourselves... a teaser site. Hot Karl's 12-story, 104-unit building at 267 Sixth Street traded in one developer (Isaac Katan) for another (Naftali Group) and is now under construction; unfortunately, the fancy teaser site doesn't reveal much beyond the rendering pictured above, that there are studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units, and that the leasing and marketing will be managed by aptsandlofts. The website also allows you to sign up for a "sneak preview" event. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

CITYWIDE?New Yorkers for Parks released its annual report card this week, evaluating 43 of the city's biggest parks (PDF) on criteria ranging from trees to drinking fountains to bathrooms. Many of the parks we know and love (Riverside Park, Sunset Park) were at the top of the class (along with a few surprises, like the two big parks on Staten Island). But the park that earned the worst grade, a D? MacNeil Park in northern Queens, which boasts sinkholes, deteriorating pathways, and one water fountain that was broken when surveyors visited. Just don't go there, okay? [CurbedWire Inbox; official]
