CARNEGIE HILL?The Cheshire Group has sold half of the 75 units in the Philip House, a conversion of a prewar Renaissance Revival rental building at 141 East 88th Street. The 50 percent mark means that all of the units that have been released onto the market thus far have sold, so five new residences are now for sale. Available units include a $3.75M three-bedroom, a $8.995M five-bedroom, and three four-bedrooms, asking $5.5M, $6.75M, and $7.5M. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

PROSPECT HEIGHTS?The National is playing Barclays Center on June 5, and for the event, Barclays is offering a free bike valet service to ticket holders. "We are delighted to accommodate our guests with a complimentary service that is fitting to the Brooklyn lifestyle," says Barclays GM, which basically means they are expecting a lot of indie music-loving Brooklynites to show up on their fixies. Transportation Alternatives is in charge of the valet, and they'll be holding onto both riders' bikes and helmets. Safety first! [CurbeWire Inbox; all Barclays coverage]

MIDTOWN?The craziness of Midtown Manhattan doesn't leave much time for gazing at the ground, but here's a reason why you should pause among the masses: 96 bronze panels along Library Way. Installed 10 years ago, the panels were designed and fabricated by Andrews/LeFevre Studios, and they are meant as a celebration of great literature, with each panel featuring a quote from a librarian across the country. The designers are leading a tour of Library Way this Saturday, June 1, beginning at the library at 2 p.m. You can find more information here. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]
