Say No to the LBD this Spring?

Say No to the LBD this Spring?

As a native New Yorker,  my most comfortable uniform is this:

 

 

It’s functional.  It’s versatile.  It works.  For me, anyway.  But now that spring is in the air, I see florals sprouting on dresses all around town:

 

 

Cute, right?  What are your thoughts? Will you put down your LBD this spring in favor of color this spring?

Tribeca Penthouse Invites a Buyer Outside for $14 Million

Tribeca Penthouse Invites a Buyer Outside for $14 Million

 

 Curbed NY 

Aside from those 35-degree temperatures, this is a perfect week to list aTribeca penthouse with 3,037 square feet of outdoor space. One such penthouse just popped onto the market at 62 Beach Street, and the landscaped terrace has audio and irrigation systems, a grill, and south and west exposures. There are panoramic windows and windowed French doors throughout the place, too, so you can look at your terrace all the time if you so choose. And if you have the $14,000,000 the owner is seeking. That ownerpaid $7.1 million for the place in June 2010.

The terrace is our fixation here, but we’ll let the brokerbabble describe the rest of the place too: Posted by Kay Moon

Hummus & Pita Co. opened!

Hummus & Pita Co. opened!

 

Ready for Another Middle Eastern Restaurant?

Thapco’s menu extends well beyond hummus and pita, also including gyros, shawarma (love that word), steak, and more, and you have options similar to those at Chipotle around the corner: wrap your chosen fillings in a laffa, fill a pita with them, have them in a bowl or a platter, and so on. The pita and laffa breads are baked on site in a taboon oven.   79 Chambers, Via Tribeca Citizen  -KM

Green Carpet Roll-Out on BPC Fields

Green Carpet Roll-Out on BPC Fields

The Battery Park City ball fields are turning green again. via tribeca trib

Workers began installing AstroTurf Monday morning on the storm damaged fields. Once that process is complete, they will cover the turf with finely chopped rubber and paint foul lines and other playing marks on the field.

Despite that progress towards making the hurricane-damaged fields playable again, Battery Park City Authority spokesman Matthew Monahan said the Authority cannot commit to the fields being ready by the April 1 opening of the Downtown Little League season. Barring possible delays due to inclement weather, the fields would reopen sometime during April, he said.

“Seeing the green turf is a major milestone,” Monahan said, “but it shouldn’t be confused with, We’re getting ready to play.”    continues…

NYC Bidding Wars Are Absolutely Insane

NYC Bidding Wars Are Absolutely Insane

With a continued inventory shortage and interest rates still low, bidding wars have emerged as the new norm for increasingly desperate buyers, industry experts said. And while sellers rejoice as prices get bid up, brokers struggle to please frustrated clients.  Read the complete article in The Real Deal and my comments here.

56 Leonard signs $30M worth of contracts

56 Leonard signs $30M worth of contracts

You all know that I’ve been following the story relating to  Leonard (see my past posts).

According to Real Deal…

After only about a week on the market, four of the 145 units at the luxury condominium building at 56 Leonard Street in Tribeca are in contract, Curbed reported. The long stalled project restarted construction in October and put its first round of units on the market on Feb. 28.

The contracted prices for the four units range in price from $4.3 million for a 1,691-square-foot two-bedroom unit to $10.5 million for a 3,412- square-foot four-bedroom unit. A 2,252-square-foot three-bedroom is also in contract for $5.5 million.

The 830-foot Herzog & de Meuron–designed development project is being marketed by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, which in less than a week has generated over $30 million in sales at the building between the four in contract units.

“This has been a landmark initiative and a long-held dream,” Kelly Kennedy Mack, president of Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, said in a January statement.” [Curbed] –Christopher Cameron

HAPPY 100th Birthday!!-Woolworth Building @100

HAPPY 100th Birthday!!-Woolworth Building @100

 

Woolworth_Bldg_160.jpgGrand Central Terminal isn’t the only historic building turning 100 this year. The iconic green-topped Woolworth Building is also hitting that milestone age, having opened its doors on April 24, 1913, and it’s throwing a birthday bash in the form of… an exhibition on its history and architecture that opens next week.

 

The green-topped physical manifestation of five-and-dime baron Frank Woolworth’s fortune, it was, for 16 years after its completion, the tallest building the city.

On February 27th, the Skyscraper Museum will open the “Woolworth Building @ 100″ exhibit to celebrate the landmark tower’s centennial year. The building opened on April 24, 1913 as the tallest in the world, rising to 792 feet to the tip of its spire, instantly becoming a marvel of early 20th-century technology and a masterpiece of the architectural arts.

Read more about the Woolworth Building here

One day, you could even live there, since the top floors are being converted into luxury condos that are set to hit the market in 2015.
