  • Hate to say it but makes perfect sense that Marshalls/TJ Maxx is opening. It's highly attractive to the abundance of price conscious office workers and tourists in that area. Their profits are soaring past traditional American department stores. — AAA on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • thanks. i had forgotten that it was ever like this. — safe as milk on The Recollections of Jane Freeman (Part 4)

  • I watched the 2 story window put in place, and have envied it. I just can't imagine they went to such effort with knowledge it could be lost. I know lot lines are always a risk, but I had assumed the developer had bought the air rights next door. — mruptight on Huge New Tower Across from City Hall Park

  • Let us see how accessible this is. Right now the Street traffic looks like Death Valley. — PerryR on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • Commercial leases are so expensive only the big stores can afford it. Or the big banks. Or the chain restaurants. I like some convenience but its changing our little neighborhood. Now we have empty storefronts and big box retailers and banks. 😱 — Janet on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • Owners with lot line windows are always at risk of losing them. Light and view are not guaranteed and anyone purchasing a condo unit without knowing that has a poor lawyer. — Makes you go "hmmm..." on Huge New Tower Across from City Hall Park

  • I know that shopping at a discount retailer is verboten in posh TriBeCa, but I'd personally love a Marshall's in the area! I don't need to pay $75 at a boutique for a t-shirt for my kids, when they're just going to ruin it playing in a local park, etc. It does feel a little like TriBeCa is being swallowed up by big box retailers, but I'm also secretly welcoming the convenience! — Jen on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • The 8-15th floor condos have lot line windows on the South side, and are largely hallways, utilities etc. I'm not sure about the upper floors - perhaps the new building will be set back. Can anyone confirm? If not, the penthouse will need a re-think... http://www.stevenharrisarchitects.com/projects/TriBeCa-Penthouse — Janbo on Huge New Tower Across from City Hall Park

  • It will be hell. I live at 80 Chambers and the Chambers Street construction on the block between Church and Broadway took years! It as insufferable noise, mess, and disruption. I suppose it's necessary but the city did not seem to be in any kind of hurry to finish. Good luck! — Barbara Spitzer on CB1 Tribeca Committee: The Unofficial Minutes (January 2017)

  • I grew up on Franklin St. around the corner from El Teddy's. That place was so mystical it is forever etched in my childhood brain. You forgot to mention the statue of liberty's crown, which peaked out behind the restaurant's facade(I wasn't old enough to realize it wasn't actually the statue of liberty behind there, but I was old enough to wonder how she could be in two places at once.) Remember the mosaic fire hidrent and lamp post out front? I only ever went in once or twice, but it was beyond wonderland just to live around the corner. Apparently it started out as just "Teddy's" and was a money laundering "restaurant" that never cooked anything before it turned into magical Mexican place. — Lucy on Tribeca in the 1980s

  • Kaufman is a hack, and the only thing approaching a design that surpasses his airport hotel look is the Viceroy. And I would like someone to chime in about 270 Broadway. How could apartments have been sold with no guarantee of keeping the lot line windows? Whole sections of the bottom of the building (which I think are rentals) would be wiped out. — mruptight on Huge New Tower Across from City Hall Park

  • Why not K-mart, the store of the stars? — Marcus on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • Marshall's must have done its research. — Manhattanmommie on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • Marshall's is quite the luxury amenity for the upstairs condominium owners. — James on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • They're nuts - Century 21 is a competition-eating black hole for clothes retail. If the commercial rent allowed it, something like a Dave & Busters (the horror, but still) would make a killing. It's all tourists anyway down there. — jfrankp on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • Marshall's will never survive. Target I get - Marshall's never. How about another grocery store somewhere !!!! — Brad. on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • Agree, Courtney. — Janet on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • Let's hope they actually make it a Homegoods instead of a Marshall's. We already have enough clothing discounters. — Courtney on We’re Getting a 66,000-Square-Foot Marshalls Store

  • Corner of watts and Greenwich st. In front of apartment building. It's at the entrance of the modern apartment building. I believe it's 475 Greenwich st. Salon M is in the building. And the LED store. — Caroline on Where in Tribeca…?

  • You should be investigated for your hyper-hyperbole. — Jim Smithers on CB1 Tribeca Committee: The Unofficial Minutes (January 2017)

  • Nope! — Erik Torkells on Where in Tribeca…?

  • Washington Market near the fieldhouse? — Claudine on Where in Tribeca…?

  • Perhaps DOT is considering the building owner to be the applicant in order to conform the proposal to the Agency's own published guidelines.
