In the News: Hazelden on W. Broadway

••• “The failed downtown Manhattan condo conversion, Tribeca 5 [283 W. Broadway, between Canal and Sixth], will be reborn as the home of a new collegiate, sober-housing facility operated by Hazelden, one of the world’s largest providers of substance-, alcohol- and drug-abuse addiction treatment centers. Hazelden claims it will be the first of its kind in New York City. […] The new Tribeca housing facility will target young adults age 18-29, who have recovered from alcohol and drug abuse and need post-treatment services. The second through sixth floors will house up to 30 students, six per floor, while the first floor and basement will be used for recovery programs and meetings.” (Crain’s)

••• Right on: “Residents are calling on the city to close the bike path through City Hall Park after near misses between cyclists and pedestrians. ‘People come flying in and out of that park, and it’s dangerous,’ said Paul Hovitz, a longtime downtown resident who was nearly hit by a cyclist one evening this fall. At Hovitz’s urging, Community Board 1’s Youth and Education Committee passed a resolution Tuesday night urging the city to reroute the bikes elsewhere.” (DNAinfo)
