TRIBECA IN THE 1980S
This is one of the more terrific things I’ve posted in a while: a cache of photos showing what Tribeca looked like in the 1980s. (Desolate, for one thing!) Also: Your help may still be required in IDing some of the locations. And once we have an idea of where they were all shot, I’ll go do some then-and-now comparisons.
BREAD TRIBECA IS MOVING
…to somewhere else in Tribeca. Three possible locations, based on what we know.
Please note the update from the Landmarks Preservation Commission about the work being done 165 Church.

Congratulations to Jim Smithers, who correctly IDed last week’s “Where in Tribeca…?” To find out which restaurant has this (excellent) photo on its wall, click here.

REAL ESTATE SALES REPORT
Courtesy of StreetEasy, these are the properties whose sales were “recorded” by the city in the past seven days (ending 10/27/12)—the sales may have taken place earlier.
Fun for everyone, or at least people who don’t mind random pictures with snarky captions.
