In the News: Another Jewelry Store

••• In an article about how the Manhattan Children’s Theatre has to move out of 52 White (right), there’s a mention that a jewelry store will be taking its place. (Tribeca Trib) It has company in Tribeca, what with Nirvana International (opened last summer), Ted Muehling (opened today), and Fine Jewelry School (opened last month)/Kristin Hanson (coming soon). Or does it? After walking to White Street to take this photo, I popped in at Ted Muehling at 57 Walker; today was its first day. They said the store is only temporary, though, that they’d be moving elsewhere within Tribeca in September.

••• “The 9/11 memorial has rented ground-floor space in the luxury building at 90 West St. for security screening” and you can imagine how that’s going over. (DNAinfo)

••• “The Borders bookstore at 100 Broadway recently closed its doors for good, but its enormous 12-foot-tall sign is still hanging on the landmarked building. Roger Byrom, chairman of Community Board 1’s Landmarks Committee, wants Borders to remove the sign as quickly and as carefully as possible. He said it detracts from the ornate facade of the 115-year-old skyscraper, known as the American Surety Building.” Normally I wouldn’t even include this—I mean, of course he wants the sign removed—but new is kind of slow this week.

••• “An employee of Stella, 138 W. Broadway between Thomas and Duane Streets, saw a man who entered the shop at 12:40 p.m. Wed., April 13 fleeing from the place without paying for a blue cashmere throw valued at $1,245.” (Downtown Express)
