Luckily, construction has begun on Chelsea Stratus, “what will be the neighborhood’s tallest building.” The 40-story condo on Sixth Avenue between 24th and 25th streets will have a billiard room, media lounge, and a rooftop terrace dog run. It was designed by Lucifer. [Real Deal]
  • The 12,000-square-foot Pratt mansion at 280 Washington Avenue has dropped from $3,995,000 to $3,399,000. Will it go into the terrible twos? Quoth the experts: “There just aren’t a lot of buyers looking to drop more than $3 mil on a place in Clinton Hill just yet.” [Brownstoner]
  • Does the Brooklyn Papers‘ headline Hookers To Get Red Light mean that a sleazy legalized prostituion zone has opened in the sleaziest outer borough? Or maybe it has something to do with a new Red Hook traffic light where a pedestrian was killed. (It could be either.) [BP]
  • Out in the ‘burbs, a 12,000-square-foot (a la Pratt) mansion is listed for $15.9 million in Sands Point, Long Island. “The exterior is a rather standard Mediterranean but the interior reveals a bizarre fantasy of luxury… [The ceiling] is both muraled and coffered (and not once but twice).” [Luxist]
