In the News: “Tiny Furniture” Apartment for Sale

••• “The eclectic Tribeca duplex loft that took a star turn in Lena Dunham’s career-launching indie feature, Tiny Furniture (after its owners, who happened to be her parents, allowed her to film there), is poised to enter the market at $6.25 million.” It’s at 16 Desbrosses. —New York Times

••• “A 42-foot-wide mixed-use Tribeca building [at 70-72 Laight] has hit the market for $24 million […] It belongs to the Office of Thierry W. Despont, run by the namesake architect, according to city property records [and] the five-story building [is being marketed] as a possible townhouse or condo conversion.” —The Real Deal

••• A New York Times article on the changes happening in Downtown Brooklyn includes this gem of a quote: “Though the neighborhood has come a long way, [interior designer Roberto] Sosa said, ‘it’s not all pretty and toned. That would be boring. I don’t want it to be Tribeca. I want it to stay a little edgy. That’s the beauty of it.” You should be so lucky, especially with all the chain stores opening there.

••• Searching for model Christy Turlington, then finding her at what sounds like Tracy Anderson’s studio. —New York Times
