    This green blob sticks out like a sore thumb among stone beauties in the area.

    Anyway, Chipotle is moving into the ground floor. Taken yesterday:

    Ithink that it's fine. It's much better than the junk that was there. This is a potentiall beautiful stretch of B'Way.

    The cinder blocks abutting the old cast iron on the corner of Broadway + Reade is terrible. The fact that this is what the development team came up with to bridge old and new shows that those behind the new 281 Broadway had their design heads placed well inside some dark cavity.

    Or they were REALLY hoping it would just fall down and they'd be building something to cover that up anyway...

    Keep an Eye on City Hall from the 16th Floor of Reade57

    by Dave Hogarty

    Event: Open house at 16th floor of Reade57

    Reade57, which smartly borrows some numerical cachet from an uptown address, has a marketing tagline "downtown preferred". The 20-story glass and steel condo tower is located on the border of Tribeca and Chinatown, just northwest of City Hall Park. From the western side of the building, the view is dominated by Gehry's New York, towering over the proto-skyscrapers of Park Row. Closer to the building is the Tweed Courthouse and City Hall massed together next to the leafy canopy of the downtown park. There are upper-floor view apartments at Reade57 where one can stand in one spot and see the Hudson River to the west and the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge in the opposite direction. Floor-to-ceiling windows abound.

    This is not a super-loft building, however. The developer decided to target first-time and younger buyers by filling the building with 1 and 2BR apartments, which are selling quite well. Reade57 won't be mistaken for anything else on its block. The thoroughly modern design is sandwiched between a cast iron classic and a masonry and terra cotta office building.
