  • Images 37, 39, 40, and 46 are 387-391 Greenwich Street, east side north of N. Moore Street. (Note distinctive stone block pattern on column.) — James on Tribeca Then and Now: The Unknowns (Part 4)

  • Pepe Rosso! I forgot about that one…They used to have an East Village location on St. Mark's, I believe….now those prices are more appropriate for my thin wallet! — Marcus on Seen & Heard: North End Grill’s Last Day

  • That is the menu for Sola Pasta Bar. What is opening on Beekman is Sola Pasta Lab. That said, the menu may have some similarities. We'll find out on Monday. — Luis Vazquez (FiDi Fan Page) on Seen & Heard: North End Grill’s Last Day

  • Pepe Rosso YES!!!! Big thumbs UP! I live in the West Village and have eaten their food for years! Had no idea they delivered to Tribeca. Caution on actually visiting- They have 10 seats and no bathroom (but you can use the one in bar across street =) — Bruce on Seen & Heard: North End Grill’s Last Day

  • For reasonable good Italian: http://www.peperossotogo.com/cms//pdf/PepeRossotoGoMenu.pdf — Tribeca Mom on Seen & Heard: North End Grill’s Last Day

  • Is this the right menu? http://solapastabar.com/wp-content/uploads/menu/SOLA_MENU.pdf Menu looks good, and hopefully the food is excellent, but the prices are far beyond my very mortal budget...as are most TriBeCa prices... $21 for a plate of spaghetti, $19 for a salad! I still recall spaghetti for $6 in East Village spots c. 2000. Have food prices gone up this much? Is this is the new normal? (I guess that's why we usually cook at home!) — Marcus on Seen & Heard: North End Grill’s Last Day

  • D'oh! The opening of Sola Lab on Beekman in Monday, the 22nd. — Luis (FiDi Fan Page) on Seen & Heard: North End Grill’s Last Day

  • Is it not crystal clear to the city that condos and coops in Manhattan are significantly more taxed than those in other boros? A similarly priced apartment in a Park Slope brownstone that has MORE space might pay 15-20% the annual property tax of a condo/coop in Lower Manhattan. Are those folks using one-fifth of the city services? Hardly. I guarantee you the commission will spend its time on saying properties are UNDERVALUED in Manhattan and try to jack up our taxes even more. — C on Seen & Heard: North End Grill’s Last Day

  • I concur. I cringed as I watched a couple try to navigate that corner with a stroller... Is there a process by which we could request for it to be modified (or removed if indeed no work is being done)? — E on Seen & Heard: The Jeff Koons Sculpture Is Gone

  • Sola Pasta Lab is opening on Monday, October 24th! — Luis Vazquez (FiDi Fan Page) on Seen & Heard: The Jeff Koons Sculpture Is Gone

  • My husband talked to a guy who was working on the fountain where the Koon’s sculpture was, and he was told the sculpture would be coming back. Apparently there was damage to the piping underneath that needed fixing. — Jennifer on Seen & Heard: The Jeff Koons Sculpture Is Gone

  • Ironically that time lapse video shows that exactly zero activity occurred during the previous week. I guess that is what a DOB "stop work order" implies. I am estimating that the 2020 completion will not be met, at this rate. — James on The Likely Name and Operator of the Northwest Tribeca Hotel

  • Hi Christina, Great question! We make the game family friendly - its clean and sometimes silly, but it is designed (trivia/missions/creatives) to be fun for all ages. You would probably do well as an adult only team because you can move quickly and may know more Tribeca lore! Also, half of the prizes are really geared for adults. I hope that you try it out! — victoria weil on Seen & Heard: The Jeff Koons Sculpture Is Gone

  • Those of us who live on and near the corner of Church and Leonard are pretty fed up with the obtrusive shed built around the fitness center construction there. With a row of Citibikes just ahead of it, the sidewalk is really unpleasant to navigate and usually filthy. I'm not especially freaked by rats, but they seem to have quite an empire in there (gym rats, I guess). I honestly thought the project had run out of funding, as I haven't seen a minute's work done there since the shed went up, early this year. — David G Imber on Seen & Heard: The Jeff Koons Sculpture Is Gone

  • I loved the interview! We missed Jair Oliveira here in SP! We love his music!!! — Claudia Melo on Portrait of the Artist: Jair Oliveira

  • Is the scavenger hunt for children or can a group of adults participate and have fun too? — Christina on Seen & Heard: The Jeff Koons Sculpture Is Gone

  • The PS150 parents could really use community support. Good public schools are critical to Tribeca both for the children and for the continued attractiveness of the neighborhood. Thanks Erik for highlighting — JJ on Seen & Heard: Philly Pretzel Factory Opens Next Week

  • Parabéns pela matéria sou da cidade do Jair Rodrigues adoro a as músicas eu acompanho o Jair Oliveira des da turma balão mágico quando teve o tributo à Jair Rodrigues aqui em igarapava sp eu adorei as músicas e pude relembrar — Natalia Dos Santos De Aguiar on Portrait of the Artist: Jair Oliveira

  • This is really such a shame. WSH was the best place to smoke in NY.. hand down. The laid-back, unpretentious atmosphere was unmatched. Huge and airy with tin ceilings.. quiet but friendly, refined yet relaxed. The selection was one of the best in the entire city and was operated by it's owner, Richard, who had a vast knowledge of cigars and a million other things, guaranteeing a diverse clientele of friendly and smart people from all walks of life. It was a true gem. Sticking through the worst times this neighborhood (or veritably any other can possibly) have seen, it's sad to see it go. I wish Richard many years of happiness on the golf courses and hope, with little expectation, for a similar place to grace this city one day again. Another nail in the coffin. — Andy on The Wall Street Humidor Has Closed

  • Why would they remove the Koons? It's been there for over 10 years! I'm wondering if they are doing some sort of piping work for the fountain below where the sculpture was? They have it fenced off. I hope they intend on putting it back or replacing it. I loved ot=[ — Anthony on Seen & Heard: Philly Pretzel Factory Opens Next Week

  • I’ve been waiting for something to be written about the increase in bees! It’s crazy. I’ve lived in Tribeca for over 13 years and have never seen anything like this. My family can’t eat at any indoor/outdoor restaurants on west broadway as my kids are quite tense and jumpy around bees so the dining experience is miserable. We tried to have an enjoyable weekend picnic at Washington Market Park a few weeks ago and again the bees were aggressive and would not leave us alone while we tried to eat. I was even ordering from the outside window at Jack’s coffee and two bees literally fell from the sky on to my coffee cup on the window sill. It would be quite a coincidence that this occured around the time someone started growing thousands of bees. — LS on Seen & Heard: Aggressive Bees
