The Afternoon Wrap: Friday


  • Are the Clintons the First Family of Manhattan? They’ve left their presidential mark on fancy restaurants (Tavern on the Green), hip restaurants (Spotted Pig), quasi-hip clubs (Crobar), karao, and even karaoke bars (2nd on 2nd). [Gridskipper]
  • The Atlantic Yards project is hard to wrap one’s arms around (it’s 22 acres big), but Curbed has an omniscient guide to understanding the ins and outs. But it goes to show that even the experts don’t know how much it will cost, or how long it’ll take. [Curbed]
  • Realty queen bee Barbara Corcoran thinks the above-mentioned Web site is “always so very sweet” to her. Does she read it? [B.C.]
  • If you’re a broker, and you photoshop a listing for a house that’s eventually bought by the city’s most important real-estate appraiser, you’re probably going to get caught. [Matrix]
