The latest news from the newsland that is Curbed NY...
1) Everywhere: Coney Island is New York's most famous fun-filled thrill park, but there was once a time when every borough had an amusement park to call its own. Curbed NY took a trip down memory lane with more than 65 historic photos of NYC's long lost theme parks.
2) Poolside: Summers in New York City can be oppressively hot and humid, and there's no better way to beat the heat than diving into a pool?and it's even better when that pool is in your building. Here are 12 new developments with enviable swimming holes.
3) Upper West Side: If you want your own private pool?and have $16 million to spare?consider this bonkers duplex with a 3,600-square-foot terrace and outdoor pool overlooking the Hudson River.
4) Financial District: Construction at the third skyscraper of the new World Trade Center will likely get moving again, thanks to an almost-complete anchor tenant deal. Architect Richard Rogers designed the tower, which will rise 80 stories.
