Checking in on the condoplex where 1st Street meets 2nd Avenue



A quickie look at 24 Second Ave. (aka 32 E. First St.), where the 10-story condoplex continues shaping up on the lot of the former BP station...



Newish signage notes that this intersection of Second Avenue and First Street is inexplicably where Chrystie meets Bond...



Chrystie is close enough... but Bond is a few blocks to the west, as the arrow points out...



What this area needs is a good nickname — ChryBo? BonTie?

Anyway, as previously noted, the building will house 30 condos, with homes ranging from $1.125 million to $10.5 million along with ground-floor retail.

Previously on EV Grieve:
The 2nd Avenue BP station has closed

Permits filed to demolish former 2nd Avenue BP station

"Where First Meets Second" seems more approriate. Other suggestions: "Where First meets 2nd" "Bowery Gardens" "Mars Bar Towers" "Whole Foods Estates" "CBGB Mews" "Tick Tacky Boxes" "BP Commons".

Maybe the sign is referencing other developments by the same developer, kind of obtusely?

It's disturbing to know these developers can't read a map, or don't bother trying. Meanwhile, here is more housing for the rich while we have the highest number of homeless in history.

1 bedrooms are $1.4mm for 492 sq ft I think. A new low.. I mean high.

Maybe they meant to say this is where Chris Christie meets James Bond, so it’s some sort of bizarre movie promotion. Otherwise I agree with everyone else, this makes no sense.

I'd go with "Suckerville".
