    CurbedWire: Bond Street Oldies, 60 Years of Stuytroversy

    NOHO—The people can't get enough Adam Gordon in their lives. Last week, the Bond Street kingpin put the Bouewerie Lane Theater on the market for $36 million. Now, a tipster writes in with an update on another Gordon project, 41-43 Bond Street: "I was searching for more info on Gordon's 41 Bond, and came across this website. I assume it's just a placeholder, but isn't it weird that Gordon uses a picture of the buildings he tore down, instead of a rendering of what's getting built? Adam, baby, the new project looks great, don't be shy!" [CurbedWire Inbox]

    STUY TOWN—The Citizens Housing and Planning Council has been "promoting a more prosperous and livable New York since 1937," which means the group has some pretty awesome documents floating around in its archives. With all the headlines swirling around Stuyvesant Town of late, the CHPC alerts us that they have uploaded some classic Stuy Town materials to their website to remind us that controversy has always swirled around the Stuy. From its humble beginnings as a segregated housing complex that forced the relocation of thousands of New Yorkers, the Stuy Town experience has never been a dull one. [CurbedWire Inbox]
