Can’t Beat Building Sex

Carroll Gardens: Nobody wants to buy into this notorious new building, pictured here mounting an older, prettier structure from behind. [Brownstoner]
Corona: The sad thing about this (apparently) new building is that, if you squint, it might even pass for Deco period if it weren’t for the hideous balconies and front door. [Queens Crap]
Flatiron: Edwidge Danticat “reads from his memoir” tonight at B&N. Dude looks like a lady to us. [East Village Idiot]

Fort Greene: The refurbished clock tower of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank building, which dominates Brooklyn’s skyline, will light up tonight for the first time since August ‘06. That is so pulling focus from the Broadway reopening. [Curbed]
Greenpoint-Williamsburg: If a state bill to seize land from Trans Gas Energy via eminent domain goes through, the adjoining hoods can look toward having their own 28-acre waterfront park … with “Bushwick” in its name! Con-fus-ing! [NYDN]
West Harlem: If Columbia takes over the hood, will Malcolm X at least get a more flattering mural of himself? [Uptown Flavor]
