345meatpacking's Artsy Streak; A 'Panty-Dropping' Park View

New, 19 comments

MEATPACKING DISTRICT?DDG's popular new condo development 345meatpacking, which opened last fall, is continuing its pattern of marrying modern real estate with modern art. First, before it launched sales, it eschewed traditional scaffolding in favor of a large swath of yellow polka-dotted netting designed by famed Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. And now the 37-unit building at 345 West 14th Street is dedicating half of its ground floor to a temporary exhibition of never-before-seen portraits of Andy Warhol, photographed by Steve Wood. The show runs for just over a week, from May 3-12. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]

GREENWICH VILLAGE?As we've written about over and over again, the installation of racks for the much-anticipated CitiBike bike-sharing program launching next month just keeps getting maligned. A tipster writes, "Here's a picture of new bike racks in front of NYU on University Place across from Washington Square Park. This sidewalk gets soooo crowded between classes and it's only getting smaller once the bikes are here. What a terrible location to put this stuff." So, with regard to CitiBike... We love it. Then we hate it. Guess we have to wait till the thing actually launches to figure out how we really feel. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

TV LAND?The trailer for the second season of Million Dollar Listing New York is live (a hat tip goes out to The Hollywood Reporter), and boy is it melodramatic. Flaunting the tagline "selling beautiful real estate isn't pretty," the minute-long preview contains yelling, finger-pointing, and, oh yes, attempts to sell super pricey units. The best line of spoken brokerbabble, by far? "It's a ridiculous view. You have the whole park. It's just a panty-dropper." The season kicks off on May 8. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
