Here’s what the Untapped staff is reading in the HQ today:
- Trader Joe’s Opens At City Point Friday Morning [BKLYNER]: Trader Joe’s will finally open its doors at City Point Friday morning—exactly one week after the debut of the long-awaited DeKalb Market Hall at the Downtown Brooklyn mixed-use development.
- Film Forum’s ‘New York In The 70s’ Celebrates Gritty, Long-Gone Gotham [Gothamist]: Ask a film buff to name some quintessential New York movies, and chances are that Midnight Cowboy, Mean Streets, Shaft, The French Connection, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, and any number of other classics will be in the mix.
- Haunted Gothic mansion is a $2M fixer-upper in Westchester County [6sqft]: Just an hour north of Manhattan along the Hudson River in Irvington, New York sits Strawberry Hill Manor. The Gothic Revival mansion was built in 1850, and if its brooding gables and turrets and crumbling interiors weren’t spooky enough, there’s the fact that the original owner, John Thomas, was standing and admiring his new home when the pitchfork he was holding was struck by lightning, killing him.
- It May Soon Be More Difficult to Visit Machu Picchu [Afar]: The ancient citadel of Machu Picchu is one of the world’s most famous tourist destinations. More than 30 years ago, UNESCO added the historic site to its World Heritage collection, calling the Incan sanctuary in Peru “among the greatest artistic, architectural, and land use achievements anywhere.”
