  • July 7 of last year. 06 PAA FOR DOC #01 EIGHTEEN STORY AND CELLAR NEW BUILDING. Status: P - PLAN EXAM - APPROVED Status Date: 07/07/2016 — James on Seen & Heard: Serafina Opens Next Week

  • I went to a fortune teller, and I asked what he saw....... he looked me in the eye and said, "You want Verizon Fios yes??" and I replied with excitement, "Yes! Yes! I've been waiting since 2008!". I couldn't believe this man knew this. I never believed in this kind of thing. I mean, his turban still had the price tag on it. And after a while of awkward stares back and fourth, along with slow hand movements over the crystal ball with hues of neon lighting reflected through the slight mist surrounding it , the fortune teller looked at me and said, " Well..... you're shit out of luck!". Now I know what you are thinking.... why would you believe a hack like that? Well, is he wrong? In all seriousness.... I live in one of the best cities in the world. But in my neighborhood, you only have one provider and the prices are jacked to the moon. Fios is installed across the street from my house! But they are too lazy to bring the wires across to me! Is verizon an overweight beer drinker on a Lazyboy thinking about it's life choices??? Optimum just charged me $270 tonight! My last bill was $179 which was bad enough, but wtf!?!? When I live in NYC and my friend out in west bumbafu@k Kentucky can get Google fiber, it really gets you thinking.... "Should I get myself a Uhaul and get the fu@k outta here? Or should these providers get their act together and stop bullshitting us New Yorkers." I have to admit though, after everything I read on here, I got a little nervous about when they finally do decide to grace me with their presence. But, I've known many people who have gotten the Fios service and didn't have any complaints at all. So I guess some people just had bad luck with them, but I gotta try it.... if I get the opportunity. And I promise, if they do my wrong, I will be here to rant and shre my story. But for now, screw them all..... and thank God for my Fire TV. — Brian on Seen & Heard: Fios Frustration

  • Right across the street - fun to watch them work — Rohin on Valentine No. 56

  • Q Re: 456 Greenwich... How long can this stagnation continue before the city compels them to give us our sidewalks back? It's a very unsafe situation as there are no separate designated walkways... — Rohin on Seen & Heard: Map of Old Tribeca’s Food Market Days

  • My beloved long Tribeca staircase was featured in Hausfrau Magazine - https://issuu.com/hausfraumagazine/docs/issue_9_final_lo_res it's on pages 25 and 26 of Issue 9 - hilarious! When the photographer saw our stair, he said he just had to work it into the storyline! — Will on Valentine No. 55

  • 10 Corso Como will not open until next summer 2018, when it will likely debut with the rest of Pier 17. — Luis Vazquez (FiDi Fan Page) on In the News: Sheldon Silver’s Conviction Was Overturned

  • Genuinely a great nursery for your beloved pet! Our dog Cesar's home away from home. Wish they had this in the UK as well! — Arthur & Alessandra on Doggy Daycare Opening in Northwest Tribeca

  • Had food from there twice - 1 take out & 1 inside. Both were just fine. No different than any other Del Frisco's or really any other place in Brookfield Place for that matter. Certainly not some cool new discovery but more than solid for what & where it is IMO. Don't understand all the handwringing... but to each their own. — Jeff on First Impressions: Del Frisco’s Grille

  • I felt like I was at Roosevelt Field Mall eating at Bennigans. The music was unbearable. Very disappointed neighbor. — Lynn Kane on First Impressions: Del Frisco’s Grille

  • Depressing. On a side note, when did wedge salads come back in style? — mruptight on First Impressions: Del Frisco’s Grille

  • sit outside of citigroup for more than 5 minute and see how wrong you are — sean on In the News: Blacks and Latinos Targeted for Pot Arrests

  • You sound like the type of person who would complain about the smell inside as well. — sean on In the News: Blacks and Latinos Targeted for Pot Arrests

  • ...the process seems more like regular process once passed in city council...this iniative was in the news and not mayoral driven but instead started by the local council person. — Tamk on In the News: Residents Demand Cuomo Sign Bill

  • I know of at least one Tribeca high end apartment building where the police recently responded to complaints about marijuana smoke coming from what I understand was an affordable housing set-aside apartment with a minority tenant. It is unclear whether any arrests were ever made. — James on In the News: Blacks and Latinos Targeted for Pot Arrests

  • IMO the chamfered corner entrance at 452 Greenwich Street with the cast iron column is a far nicer restoration than what was done recently at Yves (385 Greenwich Street) when they bricked up all around the column there and gave up the chamfered corner entrance. — James on In the News: Blacks and Latinos Targeted for Pot Arrests

  • Do you really believe that they're arresting only people who smoke in public? Because the police say that's policy? Talk to Blacks and Latinos who are arbitrarily searched for no reason - and are illegally searched - take a look at the bystander videos of police attacking innocent people, and explain to me how these folks aren't being targeted. — A. on In the News: Blacks and Latinos Targeted for Pot Arrests

  • The 10 year lease started in 1Q 2014. (From the April 2016 post: "We moved to 158 Duane in 2004, and 200 Church two years ago.") Further to the window signage, Sinvin has this listed as a sublease term through February 2024, with photos of New York Nautical. http://www.sinvin.com/listing/200-church-street/ — James on New York Nautical Is Setting Sail

  • I don't understand why people need to smoke pot in public. No argument with doing it in the privacy of your own homes. However now Just too much of that smell around outside schools, shops, supermarkets? It's getting a bit ridiculous.. DeBlasio =what a mess... — Rohin on In the News: Blacks and Latinos Targeted for Pot Arrests

  • What happened to the 10 year lease? (2016) — Rohin on New York Nautical Is Setting Sail

  • I see (and smell) a lot of pot being smoked by white people in TriBeCa all the time. — HH on In the News: Blacks and Latinos Targeted for Pot Arrests
