The Afternoon Wrap: Monday


  • The least-deserving semi-mega stars in Manhattan (an MTV hostess and a pop star famous for marrying and divorcing a bigger pop star) have bought an apartment in the luxe Atelier. The high-end condo will make Nick Lachey look slightly less icky. [TMZ]
  • Charles Scribner's 20-room, 12-fireplace estate in Morris Township is on the market for a measly $3.95 million. In Manhattan, the same exact price would buy a three-bedroom apartment. [Luxist]
  • The BQE is the new Brooklyn! A platform could potentially be built over a section of the highway (or the Gowanus Expressway), thus creating "nine new blocks of housing." [NY Post, via Brownstoner]
  • The slightly sleazy plans for our beloved Andrew Norwood House on West 14th [above] have been made official: Ben Shaoul's townhouse will be home to an "ersatz version of [a] boozy for-profit London club." Ersatz photographic evidence here and above. [NY Mag/D.I.]
