In the News: Waterfront Masterplan

••• “[The Department of City Planning] is preparing a unified vision for the city’s waterways and the shores that line them, to guide planning, development, recreation, transportation, ecology and a whole mess of other concerns for the rest of the century. Toward that end it has been soliciting ideas from New Yorkers at a series of community meetings. The next meeting, this Thursday,  will focus not so much on the shoreline as on the bays, rivers, inlets and wetlands that make up what the city is calling the ‘Blue Network.’ The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. at P.S. 234 on 292 Greenwich Street in Tribeca.” (New York Times) This was the only waterfront shot I could find quickly; that’s Howard, my pug.

••• “Thru Friday (1-7), as much as 80% off the eccentric mix of goods from around the world at Kiosk‘s annual sale. 95 Spring [Mercer/Bway] 212.226.8601.” (Manhattan User’s Guide) Kiosk, if you’ve never been, is a treat.

••• Time Out New York took a bunch of photos of stylish young people in Tribeca; a blog called Style Defined snapped someone else. Personally, I prefer Debra.

••• A resident of 430 Greenwich emailed Curbed to complain about the a/c units at 55 Vestry, a.k.a the Fairchild Lofts.
