When the move was announced, she said, a majority of the incubator’s 35 businesses decided to strike out independently, and the rest headed with Green Spaces to Tribeca. The incubator now rents to 15 startups and hopes to sign on 25 more. A  rental ranges in price from $550 a month for a full-time private space to $35 per day for drop-ins sharing an open work area. Services include a conference room, an intern program, newsletter advertising and [blah blah blah].”

••• Pantaluna, the pop-up shop we welcomed to the ‘hood three weeks ago, has deflated: “Too hard in these times to hang on with the rent so we came back to out shop in N.J. where we have a following,” writes owner Illia Barger. “We do sell our eco-friendly clothing at pantaluna.com.”

••• Casa Sugar (I don’t know either) has a slideshow of a 700-square-foot loft designed by Ghislaine Viñas for a client who loves pink. Speaking of pink….
