    A foldable apartment on the UWS

    WEEKENDEDITION An absolutely tiny apartment on the Upper West Side asking nearly half a million dollars isn’t anything new, but then most listings don’t “fold.”

    The 450-square-foot foldable apartment has hit the market at the bargain price of $469,000, according to Gothamist. Third-grade-teacher Eric Schneider purchased the West 73rd Street apartment for just $235,000 in 2005. Soon after, he hired architects Michael Chen and Kari Anderson of Normal Projects to renovate his apartment.

    WEEKENDEDITION The Midtown theater played everything from Buñuel, to popular flicks, to pornography from the time it opened in 1933 until it shut its doors in 2004. And the decline of the cheekily-named landmarked theater – located at Broadway and 99th Street on the Upper West Side – is a rather sad loss to the city. [more]

    The Apthorp

    A Manhattan Supreme Court judge threw out a $750,000 lawsuit against the developers of the Apthorp condominium. The suit, filed by a buyer of a $3 million commercial unit at the luxury Upper West Side landmark, claimed the apartment configuration was different than the promised layout.

    The plaintiff, an entity operating under the name TZVIB, alleged that the 2,200 square foot unit included a descending staircase in the middle of the unit that was not controlled by him and basically cut the unit in half. The plaintiff plans on opening a medical office in the space. [more]
