Brazil Tourism Board sets up ‘sunball’ near Madison Square Park

Reminding us that it is not cold everywhere this time of year, the Brazil Tourism Board has set up a ‘sunball’ just west of Madison Square Park and north of the Flatiron Building. It’s basically the warm version of a snow globe, and you can also step on real Brazilian sand, hang out in some warmth and pose for a ‘sunny’ holiday card. Among other things, Brazil will host both the World Cup 2014 and the Olympic Games 2016.

They will be there through Thursday, December 22nd.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively check out condo for sale on Madison Square Park

Jennifer Aniston reportedly buys Gramercy apartment

For those who follow this stuff, according to amNewYork, Jennifer Anniston is in contract on a beautiful 3 bedroom apartment overlooking Gramercy Park at 21st Street and Lexington.

It’s rumored to be the 50 Madison North building (also home to the Gramercy Park Hotel) designed by John Pawson and Ian Schrager.

This is not the first Jennifer Aniston real estate purchase rumor at a building, so take it with a grain of salt until the sale closes and is recorded by the city.
