WASHINGTON HEIGHTS—This must be some of that "New Math" we keep hearing about. A tipster writes, "Fort Tryon Gardens is a condo conversion in Washington Heights trying to lure the 'family' market by bragging about the wonderful Fort Tryon Park which is just down the street. It is an awesome park, only they kiiiind of overstate its awesome-ness. I believe it's about 67 acres, not 36,000. Hell, Manhattan is what ... 15,000 acres? It's on their site -- but worse, plastered on every bus shelter in the neighborhood too. GO BIG!" [CurbedWire Inbox]
GREENWICH VILLAGE—Very rich man Daniel Loeb bought a penthouse at 15 Central Park West for $45 million, so what does he need a Village townhouse on private MacDougal Alley for? Nothin! A tipster writes: "I guess Chateau Loeb at 15 CPW is finally ready for move-in, because he just put his carriage house in the Village on the market. An adorable house with such cool interiors. No idea who the broker is, they don't even have an active site with listing. Photos of interiors can be found at 1100 Architect who designed it." Oddly, the price has gone from $7.85 million to $7 million in four days' time. [CurbedWire Inbox]For more stories from Curbed, go to curbed.com.
