••• Several folks reported in about last night’s Community Board 1 meeting, especially in regard to the planned criminal summons court move to W. Broadway and Thomas. (I only attend when I think there might be new info.) From A.: “It was definitely about community objection, mostly 51 Thomas and 100 Franklin. But first others (Daniel Squadron, rep from the Congressman’s office, rep from Stringer’s office, head of NYPD Precinct 1, and various other resident and interest groups) spoke.” From R.: “Lynn (from the Odeon) spoke and was amazing and some other chick who reminded me of Sally Field in that movie I can’t remember the name of.” (Norma Rae?) From John Willenbecher, who had this to say about the photo above: “All those who were there against moving Criminal Court to Thomas St. & West Broadway—over a hundred people.” And everyone agreed the views from 4WTC were fantastic. UPDATE: This comment from FiDiGuy warrants attention: “The shock of the night came when the deputy mayor revealed that a real criminal court is moving to 66 john street (it seems he’s not aware that FiDi is in CB1 since he boasted that the real criminal courts are being moved from the area). the folks who spoke up against the tribeca court had already left since no one knew the deputy mayor was coming to address this move.” UPDATE #2: “The Department of Probation’s case management office, ‘where people with actual criminal records go every day,’ is also moving out of 346 Broadway and is heading down to 66 John St. in the Financial District, [Deputy Mayor Cas] Holloway said.” —DNAinfo
