  • What kind of an asinine comment is this? It sounds like Brent is some local writer who wants to show off his dubious knowledge of Booker Prize history, perhaps in some pathetic attempt to bring himself to Carey’s attention. What's that got to do w/ riding his bike, anyway. — Desmond Gillespie on TCQ&A: Peter Carey

  • traffic congestion I agree. total flop — NATIVE on In the News: More on Gitano Outdoor Restaurant

  • Hotels are now effectively the only residential use (albeit short-term) permissible in manufacturing districts without variances. That is what produced the Trump Soho condo/hotel zoning evasion scheme before it was thwarted by lawsuit. No one is manufacturing in Soho any longer, but local politicians and long-time tenant lobby groups have resisted changing the manufacturing zoning to prevent (or rather slow down) development. The City--desperate for more tax revenue--should recognize reality and change the M1-zoned district to allow residential use with an affordable housing provision if it wants to exclude hotels and transients/tourists. The manufacturers are not coming back. — James on In the News: Harvey Weinstein Turned Himself in at the 1st Precinct

  • Am I the only one who thinks that Gitano's proposed location is NOT stellar? - does anyone here agree that being surrounded by traffic and honking horns is NOT something desirable? I read this article in total disbelief! Really-- WTF??!!! — Bruce on In the News: More on Gitano Outdoor Restaurant

  • In response to the Peter Carey interview, I resolve to try really hard to not ride my bike on the sidewalk. Might also note that in some of the years, Carey won his Bookers, it was a commonwealth-only countries award. But still that's no reason to terrorize pedestrians and I'll amend my biking etiquette. — Brent on TCQ&A: Peter Carey

  • In the first picture, maybe 42 Hudson(?), there was a brothel upstairs at one point. I used to walk to the deli downstairs to get my Sunday Times, and would see college age guys exiting the building doing a lot of tucking in of shirts... — Robert Ripps on Tribeca Then and Now: Hudson

  • Problems for me, for example, and I am somewhere between lower and middle class economically, not one who can afford to shop at high-end stores and such. I just want our city streets to be clean, safe, beautiful, and advertising kept small and unobtrusive, sidewalks to be passable, noise, litter, vehicle pollution levels to be reduced, priority given to good public transit, etc. Perhaps that's too much to ask. Other cities (often in other countries) manage the task somehow, though. — Marcus on What’s Really Happening to Canal Street
