–Steve Cuozzo marvels at the changes at the the Post’s old stomping grounds on South Street. Referring to Extell’s One Manhattan Square, he writes, “in a town full of mega-developments, perhaps no single building better dramatizes the cyclonic change that’s swept New York City over the past twenty years than 252 South Street. Forget ‘gentrification’ — this is overnight transmutation. The rising tower with a gleaming glass curtain wall is flanked by low-income housing projects. Yet it’s being marketed to global big-spenders willing to pay up to $13.2 million for a top-floor duplex penthouse.” [New York Post]

–The 8th Street property owner who filed a lawsuit against his tenant for displaying Confederate flags has now withdrawn the suit. An attorney for landlord Charles Yassky said, “At this point, he feels it would be better to work it out with the tenant.” [New York Post]

–The Matte Black Latte at Round K on Allen Street is “darker than your soul.” [Huffington Post]
