  • Nick was fortunate to complete his paintings of Staple ST before the eggings began. People living on Staple are so fed up with the constant photo shoots/video shoots/instagram shoots (last weekend over 40 different shoots) that they've started throwing eggs from higher floors on to unsuspecting clickers. Tour buses are now unloading on Harrison Street and tourists are milling about by the dozens taking photos. — Rebecca on Seen & Heard: Progress at Two Park Place Restaurants

  • Are parents drinking during G rated movies to get through the pain? Are teetotaler parents worried about taking their kids to R rated movies and exposing them to drunks? New York Consolidated Laws, Alcoholic Beverage Control Law - ABC § 65.

  • A recently approved (6/22/17) amendment to the Schedule A (job 100697532) shows merely a change of use to the upper floors to offices from warehouse. No demo or enlargement indicated. — James on Black Burger and Roll and Go Have Closed

  • Maybe add a provision in the law regarding serving alcohol to folks who are obviously already drunk? Or limit the size of the portions? Or just toss out anyone drunk or inappropriate? Seems like a drag to keep the 99% of folks who just want to have a beer during a movie from enjoying one because of the 1% who might get drunk and rowdy. — Will on In the News: Broadway Likely to Get Another Tower

  • Supposedly, Gore's pushing hard for that legislation really got the internet off the ground. He was correct, in many respects, and had a right to take pride in that achievement. I respect the man - he was right about bringing the world's attention to global warming, too. Al Gore's been right about a lot of things, and ahead of the curve, too. — Will on Seen & Heard: Coordinated Open Houses

  • Roll and go/black burger at corner of Broadway and Franklin is out of business. Door has a note saying lease expired. The restaurant opened less than 5 years ago so it must be a short lease. With this and the American souvenir shop next door gone, does it mean the development of the L shape condo will start in the near future? — TribecaMom on Seen & Heard: Brazilian Gallery

  • The conclusion of the article I cited: "So why is his comment now remembered as a Four-Pinocchio whopper? Certainly the shorthand description, fostered by the media, made a difference. But the key reason is that the statement fit within an emerging narrative that Gore, fairly or not, was a self-absorbed stretcher of the facts. A gaffe sticks if it somehow validates preconceived notions about a politician." — PeterD on Seen & Heard: Coordinated Open Houses

  • We will miss Nuts About Nuts ...freshest Nuts and friendliest staff. Such a shame. — Vima on The Nut Store Is Closing

  • Tom Miller: 282 Hudson was where we had the Holland Tunnel Blues Bar. I believe Cody's was there recently. Our jukebox was legendary. We were never open, always closed. — ron gwynne on Grand Plans for the Former American Flatbread Space

  • The point of the article you are citing: "As a lawmaker, Gore did play an important role in fostering public use of the Internet. Nevertheless, here it is, years later, and Gore is still paying penance for an offhand remark, poorly phrased. So how is it that this flub continues to resonate — and what warnings does Gore’s experience have for other politicians?" He was not claiming that he "invented the Internet" but that legislation he fostered made it available to ordinary citizens, which everyone involved in the effort at that time, from top research scientists to people working in telecom (like myself) agree was not just true, but relatively modest. — David G. Imber on Seen & Heard: Coordinated Open Houses

  • You can thank the DOB for that. Demolition plans are ready to get approved, by their very nature. It is safer for plan examiners' jobs to reject construction plans than to approve them, unless the applicant is politically connected. — James on Nosy Neighbor: Why Has Construction Stopped at 30 Warren?

  • Does he have enough votes to override a veto? It seems hard to believe that the Governor would sign a single-purpose bill forcing himself (to give up unfettered control of some political plums) to do what he has not done willingly to this point. — James on Big Step for Local Representation in Battery Park City
