New Art in Bryant Park; Park Slope Conversion Hits 70% Sold

New, 1 comment

MIDTOWN/MIDTOWN WEST?As the weather gets warmer, the number of public art installations around the city will multiply... which is awesome because now people can actually enjoy them without freezing to death while introspecting or something. Over in Bryant Park, Art Production Fund's project, "One-Two-Three" by the late Tony Smith, was installed yesterday. The three-part sculpture, which is made of steel and weighs in at a combined 2,700 pounds, is intended to be a "conversation starter." More important, though, is that it's meant to celebrate Smith's legacy as a pioneer and initiator of New York City's public art program in parks in 1967. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]

PARK SLOPE?After Park Union announced that it was 50 percent sold two weeks ago, the Catholic school turned 15-unit condo development has now hit the 70 percent mark. That's pretty speedy, considering they went on the market five months ago, but there is a lot of demand in that neighborhood and there aren't that many residences to sell. Then again, who wouldn't want a "pre-war inspired" apartment? There are four left, ranging from a 1BR/1BA for $799,000 to a 3BR/2.5BA penthouse listed at at $2.15 million.

UNION SQUARE?The long-awaited Hyatt Union Square might actually be opening soon. We last wrote that the Gene Kaufman-designed hotel was aiming for a March opening after some delays, and it seems that could realistically happen. A tipster emailed us a photo of official front-door signage (!), though the entrance and the windows along the ground floor are still plastered in brown paper. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
