THE RECOLLECTIONS OF JANE FREEMAN (PART 3)
Longtime Tribeca artist and writer Jane Freeman lets us take a peek at a handful of her journal entries from the 1980s, when Tribeca was young and “we walked our dogs in acres of chamomile weeds.”
WARREN STREET IS GETTING TORN UP NEXT
In February, the city will start work on a two-and-a-half-year reconstruction of Warren Street, akin to the ongoing Worth Street project (pictured above).

LET’S TAKE BACK OUR TREES!
I started a GoFundMe drive for a communal Bag Snagger, a device designed to get rid of the ugly plastic bags caught on tree branches, and we met the goal. You’re welcome to keep giving, of course—we can donate it to a group fighting to ban plastic shopping bags in the city and/or state.
