••• The two zoning proposals for Lower Manhattan elementary schools did not make everyone happy, or so report DNAinfo, Curbed, and the Tribeca Trib. Particularly odd: “The children who live in the high-rent section at 101 Warren Street can get into P.S. 234. The children who live in the affordable-housing units of the same complex can’t.”

••• Vadim Ponorovsky, owner of Paradou in  the Meatpacking District and the Frites ‘N’ Meats burger truck in Tribeca, sent anasty email to his employees at Paradou, then got ripped a new one by Gawker; now he’s in a fight with the Internet. Never mix it up with the anonymous. You can’t win.

••• The northbound platform at the Cortlandt Street R/W subway station, closed since summer of 2005, will reopen on Wednesday, Nov. 25.

••• Broadsheet Daily looks into the fires—there were at least nine last week!—at Stuyvesant High School.

••• “Kerianne Flynn bought condo Unit #5C at 161 Hudson St. from Patrick Cauley and Patricia Evers Cauley for $2.065 million on Oct. 23. Ms. Flynn is a human resources professional in the fashion and beauty industry in New York. She has worked for French Connection, Bebe, and divisions of The Limited, including Limited Design and Victoria’s Secret Beauty.” (Blockshopper)

••• The Villager profiles Tribeca sculptor and photographer Janet Goldner, who makes semi-annual trips to Mali for inspiration. “Goldner is also prepping some of her Mali photography for display beginning in January at Kiva Cafe on Reade Street.”
