  • Not that I ever pay the full $25, but doesn't it also give you free same day admission to the orriginal MET and the Cloisters? — Robert Ripps on Field Trip: The Met Breuer

  • Nope! Although there is (or used to be) a birdhouse there, and I think I ran a "Where in Tribeca...?" on it a long time ago. — Erik Torkells on Where in Tribeca…?

  • Tried Tipsy Shanghai about a month ago. We got it to go as we just live around the corner. It was nothing to write home about. The soup dumplings weren't that great. — Courtney on Seen & Heard: Chinese Food Recommendations

  • We call it hyperlocal blogging. The neighborhood is small, but the blog is HUGE. — Erik Torkells on CB1 Tribeca Committee: The Unofficial Minutes (January 2017)

  • Meh. I think it's time to up TC's game and/or its stakes. With great micro-blogging comes greater responsibility. Trolls need different challenges to sustain themselves. Make Tribeca Great Again. — Jim Smithers on CB1 Tribeca Committee: The Unofficial Minutes (January 2017)

  • I wonder what that will do to 270 Broadway? Will it cover all those windows, especially that penthouses double floor window? — Nicole on Huge New Tower Across from City Hall Park

  • Just to clarify: I didn't mean for it to sound like Laughing Man is trying to pull one over on the DOT (which had a rep at the meeting to support the expansion). — Erik Torkells on CB1 Tribeca Committee: The Unofficial Minutes (January 2017)

  • I suppose the one upside to the Warren Street construction is that there won't be any street fairs on that block for 2.5+ years. As to Con Ed, Verizon, et al performing non-emergency late night construction: WHY? Why is DOT awarding them permits for this? — KP on CB1 Tribeca Committee: The Unofficial Minutes (January 2017)

  • Re: "I did wonder whether the DOT intended for a tiny café, with a tiny façade—maybe 10 feet?—to colonize an area so much wider than itself." They likely did not. See as an analogy, for example Zoning Resolution 42-532 regarding signage and the width of a zoning lot. In all districts, as indicated, non-#illuminated signs# with total #surface areas# not exceeding six times the #street# frontage of the #zoning lot#, in feet, but in no event more than 1,200 square feet for each #sign#, are permitted. And 42-53 - For the purpose of determining permitted #surface area# of #signs# for #zoning lots# occupied by more than one establishment, any portion of such #zoning lot# occupied by a #building# or part of a #building# accommodating one or more establishments on the ground floor may be considered as a separate #zoning lot#. See similarly ZR 32-64 etc. — James on CB1 Tribeca Committee: The Unofficial Minutes (January 2017)

  • We should have copyrighted the name while we had the chance. — Marcus on A Piece of Tribeca® (Part 10)

  • Kaufman has indeed been responsible for a great many crappy hotels all over the city, BUT (and I am an eternal optimist), i would hope that the design for this particular project will be far better than what he usually produces, since it will hold 30 very high end full floor luxury Condominiums, and presumably, the building should look good enough to match the prices he hopes to get. Let's hope so. — Luis Vazquez (FiDi Fan Page) on Huge New Tower Across from City Hall Park

  • send me an email directly and we would like to invite you over again for another try of our food, on me. I am certain it must have been a off night. We are getting many many positive comments on our food there. — Michael Dorf on Tribeca’s Newest Music Venue

  • So disappointing homophobe Michelle Shocked will be at City Vineyard...maybe I'll have some energy left after the Million Women March and protest! On another note: I sadly cannot recommend City Vineyard. I had my birthday dinner there with my family and the food was just terrible. The service was tentative but nice and the host was chilly. I was so excited and think the space is just lovely. I spoke with a friend who had gone by there twice to find the venue closed when the website and sign outside listed it should be open. It wasn't cheap and from start to finish the food was just bad. The only tasty item was the oysters which well, isn't really all that reflective of the quality of the kitchen. Not sure if and when I'll be back. — TG on Tribeca’s Newest Music Venue

  • Potential silver lining: the availability of fiber internet? — Roberto on Warren Street Is Getting Torn Up Next
