••• The Wall Street Journal checks in with Steven Harris (whose architect firm is that one on Chambers) and Lucien Rees Roberts (an interior and landscape designer), timed to the presumably recent publication of “True Life (Princeton Architectural Press), a monograph with a forward by the novelist A.M. Homes that covers Lucien and Steven’s professional collaboration over the past quarter century.”

••• In an article about Manhattan’s “little-known technology quarter,” which included 60 Hudson, the Wall Street Journal neglects to mention the 80,000 gallons of fuel oil stored in the building.

••• “Lower Manhattan Development Corp. boss David Emil will jump ship tomorrow in an early-retirement deal that lets him boost his pension—months before he completes the agency’s signature mission of dismantling the trouble-plagued Deutsche Bank building. […] The surprise retirement allows Emil to receive an extra month of pension credit for each year he worked in government. His pension could add up to $52,000 a year. […] ‘He’s never in the office,’ said a source with inside knowledge of the agency. ‘The guy is literally never there.'” (New York Post)

••• Writer Marty Wombacher is going to a different bar every day this year. He just went to Walker’s. Hilarity ensues. For some reason, at first I thought he was making it up based on photos he had found online, which amused me much more.

••• “Marcus Robinson, 51, has been drawing, painting and filming the World Trade Center construction for nearly five years.” (DNAinfo)
