In the News: Leonardo DiCaprio Looks Again

••• “Victoria’s Secret model Andi Muise is accused of letting her pit bull attack a 5-pound toy poodle belonging to Tiffany Hershkowitz, owner of Tribeca’s Balloon Saloon.” —New York Post

••• The New York Times profiles Grace Hightower De Niro, “an actress, a singer, a philanthropist, the mother of a toddler and a teenager and perhaps the closest thing Tribeca has to royalty.” Take that, Jay and Bey! You too, Goopstress! The piece mentions GHDN’s coffee brand, but not the plans for a café in these parts. Also of note: “She is an investor in a high-end fitness studio in Tribeca called Body by Simone.” (Although the Website by Simone says it’s in Chelsea…? Or maybe Simone is opening here? “Would be super juicy if she opened here —she is a former Tracey Anderson protégée!” emails a reader.)

••• “New plays about the Salem witch trials, the Olsen twins, and the patrician elite are among the Off Broadway productions this fall that the Flea Theater announced on Wednesday.” —The New York Times

••• “NYPD Targets Cyclists for Moving Violations in Battery Park City.” —Broadsheet

••• “Both the Times and the Post checked out the Santiago Calatrava’s under-construction, $4-billion, flying-bird-inspired transportation hub at the World Trade Center yesterday. Both outlets came away with drastically different takes on the Port Authority project.” Call me when it’s done. —Curbed

••• “Leonardo DiCaprio continues to prowl the city, and he’s recently been taking another look at his old TriBeCa neighborhood. DiCaprio […] just toured a $20 million penthouse atop the Sterling Mason condo building at 71 Laight St. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom residence is 4,986 square feet.” Maybe The Leonard should rename itself the Leonardo, in an effort to attract his attention…. UPDATE 7/22: A rep for the Sterling Mason says it knows nothing about this. —New York Post
