UPPER EAST SIDE?The $125 million penthouse at the Pierre is almost old news by now, and we've seen more than one set of listing photos. But a tipster spotted a Zillow listing for the apartment with some images we hadn't seen yet, including a handful of close-ups. Two of them are above; click through for the rest. [CurbedWire Inbox]
LOWER MANHATTAN? Open House New York is hosting its openstudios Lower Manhattan event, an opportunity to wander through the workspaces of some of the city's architects and designers, this weekend. We gave away some tickets via a quiz. The winners have already been notified, but for the curious, here are the answers.
The quiz asked participants to name the main architectural firm involved in the design of each of five buildings.
1) The Queens Borough Library was designed by Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership. (The firm only designed the interiors, so those who named 1100 Architect also received credit.)
2) Street furniture by Billings Jackson
3) 7 World Trade Center was designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill
4) Floating boat docks in New York Harbor were designed by GRO Architects
5) The Christodora House's penthouse was renovated by Rice + Lipka Architects
