In the News: Gehry Amenities

Courtesy Curbed

••• Curbed took a tour of New York by Golly Gehry—jealous!—and has renderings of the pool, door handles (right), etc.

••• Marco Canora of Terroir and Hearth wrote for Grub Street about what he ate one week. (More jealousy!) Canora—who got a James Beard nomination this week, by the way—is pretty funny on Twitter. Oh, and his cookbook (Salt to Taste) is excellent.

••• Tamy and Felipe of Worth Kitchen get included in a Grub Street roundup of supper clubs 2.0.

••• Ryan Maguire’s Ale House, down on Cliff Street, is set to reopen after last year’s fire. (DNAinfo)

••• Henrik Lundqvist tells Grub Street that Tiny’s may open within a couple of weeks. Rookie mistake from the look of things.

••• Curbed‘s recap of “Selling New York” includes Warburg’s Deborah Lupard. Love this part about a San Francisco–based client who wishes his money would go farther: “Annoyed, Deb tells us ‘for anyone buying their first apartment in NYC, it’s always a rude awakening.’ Sing it, girl!”

••• “Next winter, would lower Manhattan residents prefer to go ice-skating or play soccer and touch football? That’s the question facing a group of Community Board 1 members, who met this week to begin a debate over the future of the Battery Park City ball fields.” (DNAinfo)

••• There has been a 30 percent increase in tourists visiting downtown over the past two years—and none of them can find Ground Zero. (DNAinfo)

••• “A hammock-hemmed forest and two new sports fields are on the way to Governors Island by 2013, thanks to a new $150 million allocation by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, three sources told DNAinfo Friday. The money in the city’s capital budget will open up a new 23-acre section of Governors Island that was previously closed to the public, the sources said. Construction will start as soon as this year.” Which is nice, but I’d rather have Hudson River Park finished. (DNAinfo)
