Park Slope Moms Terrorize the Childless

Chelsea: Curbed goes up on the semi-constructed High Line, where vegetation will be planted prior to the elevated parkway’s fall/winter opening. These pics are cool, thank you, Curbed! [Curbed]
Dumbo: Two West Coast finance guys (lovers? Brothers? Bachelor buds?) just put down more than $7 mil to buy the penthouse in the Clock Tower Condos, breaking the record for Brooklyn’s priciest condo. The property had been on the market since 2006, when it listed for $10.5 mil. [Real Deal via DumboNYC]
Park Slope: Mommies with strollers are plowing down the childless with impunity on the sidewalks, and the childless are cowering at home, terrified to say anything about it. Or so goes the latest cry for help on the topic. [Brownstoner via Slackjaw]

Roosevelt Island: Hey, looks like these folks are going to be getting ferry service, too! So start practicing saying: “The tram is soooo 2007.” [Roosevelt Islander]
Upper West Side: The newly helmed (perhaps brawnier?) Buildings Department has given Columbus Village, the ongoing project on Columbus in the high Nineties that’s currently the largest residential development in Manhattan, ten days to respond to allegations of zoning violations, or it may shut the whole damn thing down. [NYDN]
West Village: Wander the nabe’s far west side, sneering at its new glassy towers, and you may just come across … Julian Schnabel outside his very pink Palazzo Chupi, chattering on his cell. [Vanishing NY]
Williamsburg; Okay, agreed, it was kind of mean for construction workers here to (allegedly) paint a beloved local turtle a fluorescent pink. But if it won’t really hurt the cute terrapin, isn’t it perhaps just a wee bit funny? Or maybe we’re just hard-shelled.(Plus, finally: your chance to break into indie hipster porn!) [Gowanus Lounge]
