In the News: New White Street Building Approved

••• The Landmarks Preservation Commission loved the design for 14 White. —Tribeca Trib

••• “A 4-foot tall bronze sculpture of a young girl, with her hands firmly on her hips, was installed [in front of the Wall Street] bull sculpture—as though she’s staring it down. The ‘Fearless Girl’ is part of a campaign from State Street Global Advisors […] to draw attention to the need for more female leaders in business, specifically calling for more women on company boards.” —DNAinfo

••• More on Piccola Cucina Estiatorio, opening today or next week (the item just says “Wednesday”) on Thompson: “Philip Guardione, who owns two Italian restaurants in Soho (Piccola Cucina Enoteca and Piccola Cucina Osteria), is opening a third, emphasizing seafood with inflections from Sicily, Southern Italy and Greece. Seafood is sold by the pound, and preparations reflect those at various ports of call along the Mediterranean. There are also some meat and vegetable dishes.” —New York Times

••• The owner of Remix is still trying to get his liquor license back after the vice squad raided and found “18 lap dancing couples (‘several females completely topless’) gyrating on couches in a concealed back room in a dangerous location,” among many other violations. —Tribeca Trib

  1. If Remix isn’t being a noisy neighbor I say let them stay!! How fun that 18 couples were lap dancing…were they with their partners or some pros?
    New York City used to have fun dance spaces, great after hours clubs, sex clubs where people could enjoy themselves with like-minded adults then a mean, humorless, vindictive prosecutor became mayor and made sure if he wasn’t going to have no fun, no one was.
