The Afternoon Wrap: Tuesday


  • The greatest thing ever in fake-billionaire furniture will debut by the end of the month. Behold: “Westchester” and “Central Park,” two groups of affordable-luxe furniture. Both have been “personally signed off on” by Mr. Donald Trump. [Luxist]
  • It seems that the Department of Transportation’s quiet plans to narrow Fourth Avenue (and make Park Slope arteries Sixth and Seventh avenues into one-way streets) has something to do with Atlantic Yards. Frank Gehry probably just wants to take some space away from hip stroller-pushing dads. [Streetsblog]
  • More in Forbes‘ billionaires: They have expensive houses! They like New York! Apparently many “maintain secondary homes on New York’s East Side,” like #19 Paul Allen and #86 Sumner Redstone. Michael Gross knows all the rich guys at 740 Park. [Forbes Life]
  • Is Scarlett Johansson moving to 79 Laight Street? She’s looked at Chelsea and Tribeca penthouses: neighborhood brokers think she’s quite “delightful.” [NY Mag]
