New, 4 comments

PROSPECT-LEFFERTS GARDENS—Despite the fact that the neighbors are very upset about the impending residential tower that will dwarf all of its surrounding building, so much, in fact, that they're suing, demolition of the current building at 626 Flatbush Avenue that will make way for Hudson Companies' 23-story rental tower is barreling right along, as this photo sent in by a tipster displays. Our tipster tells us that the demo is supposed to be finished in a week. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

LOWER EAST SIDE—The Lower East Side Business Improvement District and artist Kim Sillen have been selected to receive funding from the Department of Transportation's pARTners track in their Urban Art program. Sillen's "Modern Tapestry" will be installed on a 1,000-square-foot triangular section of street at Ludlow/Division and Canal. [CurbedWire Inbox]
