JFK?Preservationists were fighting with all their might to save the Pan Am Worldport, formerly Delta's much-maligned erstwhile Terminal 3. But it looks like it was too little, too late, as demolition appears to have begun. (This, apparently, is its SOM-designed replacement.) Onto the next one. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

FIDI/BATTERY PARK CITY?Our favorite broker is back! By which we mean, Alexis Gandelman of New York Residence, who superimposes a completely bizarre, semi-transparent, 100-percent-creepy photo of herself with a parrot on her shoulder onto every listing photo. Every. Listing. Photo. Including this new-to-market studio at 20 West Street. The stuffed bear on the bed, reminiscent of another broker's famously awkward plush-toy marketing tactics, seems to be saying, "This is not a bedroom." [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]


TRIBECA?One of the last units at conversion-slash-celeb favorite 250 West Street, which was also one of the best-selling buildings of the first half, has come to market; it's an 11th-floor corner unit with three beds and three baths, designed by professional staging expert and HGTV regular Meridith Baer. It's listed at $10,995,000, which is a bargain compared to the over-the-top $42M penthouse, which is apparently still on the market even though it's not listed. The building also has a sweet pool.

LONG ISLAND CITY?All right, because it's Friday, we'll allow one cheesy "We've topped out!!!" construction shot. Earlier this week, TF Cornerstone reached a milestone towards the end of the decade-long journey that has been its East Coast megaproject, when it topped out its sixth and final residential building. This final tower, 4610 Center Boulevard, is particularly neat because its design purposely incorporates the vintage Pepsi-Cola sign that is a signature of Long Island City. When it opens, the building will house 585 luxury rentals. Below, an aerial view. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
