  • 108 Varick Street [above] has been dubbed “an architecture ghetto,” which means there are lots of fancy architecture HQs there (like Michael Sorkin’s office), which means it has the highest RBG/P (round black glasses per person) ratio in the nation. [Metropolis]
  • Oh, Westchester! Not only do the biggest Westchest (that’s our brilliant nickname) houses get titles like “Wildflower Farm,” they get lawns landscaped by Frederick Law Olmsted, and price tags just shy of $8.5 million. [Luxist]
  • If Lizzy Ratner’s “Floods, Heat, Bugs” article today wasn’t frightening enough, the scary-named NYC Open Accessible Space Information System Cooperative has released pretty maps of New York’s impending massive sogginess. [Gothamist]
  • Brooklyn salsa is spreading! Bushwick’s Salsa Salsa Dance Studio has spread to Park Slope, giving rich people who “have no idea how to dance” a chance to shake their well-fed booties. [Brownstoner]
