Envisioning A Scary, Flooded NYC; A Playground Built In 8 Hours

New, 12 comments

IN THE FLOOD ZONE?StreetEasy has come up with a hella scary map (above is only an excerpt) that visualizes what New York City would look like if all six of the city's newly designated evacuation zones were flooded. The map allows you to differentiate between the zones to gauge the effect of a more or less severe storm. Serious stuff. The real estate listings website has also updated the information on all the buildings in their database to reflect the new zones so that you know which zone a listing is located in.

UPPER EAST SIDE?One of developer Harry Macklowe's two UES conversions, 150 East 72nd Street, just issued a sales update: 50 percent of the units, which range in ask from $6.03 million to $11.5 million, have already sold. We took a look inside the sumptuous model units recently, so have a gander lotsa photos of this luxe stuff that's getting snapped up. Occupancy is expected to begin this summer.

BED-STUY?More than 200 volunteers pieced together a playground between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., which makes everyone else's productivity look bad by comparison. The project was spearheaded by Forest City Ratner and nonprofit KaBOOM!, and according to their release, "volunteers mixed and poured more than 20,800 pounds of concrete and moved more than 40,500 square feet of safety surfacing all by hand."
