CurbedWire: Curvy West Chelsea Building on the Market, Yankee Stadium ‘Closing Ceremony' Coming Up

CHELSEA—Architect/developer Cary Tamarkin's 456 West 19th Street, which is on a corner lot facing the High Line, has hit the market. We're talking 22 duplexes priced from $1.5 million and penthouses starting at $6 million. Per the release: "Inspired by the neighborhood's classic industrial modern architecture, with a hand-laid black brick exterior and multi-paned steel windows reminiscent of the nearby Starrett-Lehigh Building, architect and developer Cary Tamarkin has infused his firm's signature style and understated elegance in every detail." There you have it. [CurbedWire Inbox]

BRONX—There's going to be a "Yankee Stadium Closing Ceremony," though it would seem to us that's more like a euphemism meant to sound comforting like "putting it to sleep" rather than tearing it the freak down. A bunch of students are going to "remove dirt from the pitcher’s diamond and home plate and transfer it to the new stadium." The symbolic murder of Ye Olde Ball Park takes place on Saturday, November 8. [CurbedWire Inbox]For more stories from Curbed, go to
