  • Looking at these, I see that much of the construction occurred on the site of low, one or two floor "taxpayer" buildings, built so investors could have land they own pay for itself. Now, many years later, we see how well "taxpayers" met their goal. I never realized the relationship between new buildings and taxpayers before. As someone who started to spend time in Tribeca in 1975, and moved here shortly thereafter, I miss the old, shabby, artistic interesting, inconvenient neighborhood with the best bars. — A. on When Tribeca Was Small (Part One)

  • I'm super excited to see how 1 Beekman turns out, especially since what was there before was so god awful. It must be pretty complex to build because its not moving fast. — john on Seen & Heard: New Ice Cream Shop

  • Re 380 Broadway's White Street Facade: The LPC designation report states, "The marble White Street facade, patched in some places, is divided into five sections by quoins. The end and center sections continue the design of the Broadway facade. The other two sections contain fewer windows with molded surrounds and keystones." If you compare the present day photo to the 1912 photo posted by Daytonian, you will see that in 1912 the five sections were easy to distinguish and that some windows were added after 1912 to what LPC calls the "other two sections." — James on In the News: Construction Worker Fell to His Death

  • http://wwd.com/fashion-news/fashion-scoops/vuittons-travel-exhibition-coming-to-america-10968118/ Vuitton’s Travel Exhibition Will Unpack Its Trunks in Manhattan The showcase debuted in Paris and has already traveled to Japan and South Korea. By WWD Staff on August 29, 2017 TRAVEL BUG: If any exhibition was meant to travel, “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez — Louis Vuitton” is it. And now it’s coming to America. The showcase, which details the French brand’s roots via trunks, steamer bags and other historic paraphernalia, is to land at the former American Stock Exchange building in New York City for a nine-week run. It is to open to the public on Oct. 27 and run through Jan. 7, 2018. The exhibition debuted at the Grand Palais in Paris in 2015 and has since touched down in Tokyo at Kioicho and in Seoul at DDP. The Manhattan version is to include new display elements focused on the Americas. — James on Seen & Heard: Cobblestone Repair Progress

  • We need to drain the swamp and make New York great again. — PeterD on In the News: Democratic Party Shenanigans

  • It blew my mind how corrupt those Democratic "shenanigans" were. They convened a meeting (I was there, and it was packed), they held a vote, and Paul Newell won by a landslide - 72% for Newell. I thought, great, I guess it will be Paul, unless there's another candidate from Brooklyn when they meet, in which case I guess we'll have another meeting and decide on a new state senator. That evening I found out some party boss had completely ignored the voting. There was no meeting or vote or anything in Brooklyn. The party boss, Keith Wright, a paid lobbyist, simply chose a pal of his for the state senate seat. And that was that. Nothing corrupt or unseemly or undemocratic or unprincipled about that. Nope. Amazing this sort of thing can go down in the Democratic Party in NYC in 2017. It's like something from the Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall days. And given the widespread apathy around local politics, this latest clown appointed by Boss Wright, Brian Kavanagh, will likely earn all the usual rubber stamp endorsements from all the other clowns sitting in nice, safe incumbent seats in our districts and everyone will scratch everyone else's back and nothing will ever change. — Will on In the News: Democratic Party Shenanigans

  • I love this and often wonder what someone who lived or worked here in the 1800s would say. Or the 1700s, when this was farmland (a far greater shift than 1960-present). Here's to "the originals" regardless of your decade or century! — Duane Street on When Tribeca Was Small (Part One)

  • We were told a couple months ago in a resident newsletter that the sidewalk sheds had to stay up until all the work was completed at all the buildings. So the 310 Greenwich sidewalk shed has to stay up until the 80 N Moore work is completed (the last building of the three). — M on Seen & Heard: Blue Bottle Opens Today at the 9/11 Memorial
