In the News: Bentley Theft

••• A man wearing a ski cap and snorkel stole a 2011 Bentley Continental Supersports from the parking garage at 70 Little West St. —Tribeca Trib

••• “New York Downtown Hospital now has more ambulances on call around the clock in Lower Manhattan.” Which means more sirens? —DNAinfo

••• “Film scout Nick Carr (aka our pal behind Scouting NY) gives good interview to Atlantic Cities today about what it’s like to shoot in New York City. A frequent request are ‘dark, dank alleys’ to shoot in, which Carr says boils down to Cortlandt Alley in Tribeca.” —Curbed

••• “The $700-per-night W Hotel Downtown last week hosted both Peter Dutro, one of a select few OWS members on the powerful finance committee, and Brad Spitzer, a California-based analyst who not only secretly took part in protests during a week-long business trip but offered shelter to protesters in his swanky platinum-card room. ‘Tents are not for me,’ he confessed, when confronted in the sleek black lobby of the Washington Street hotel where sources described him as a ‘repeat’ guest.” No way on earth that hotel gets $700 per night. —New York Post

••• “‘On the one hand, living alone with a cat in a 4,500-square-foot house in Tribeca, and also owning an equally large house upstate, felt morally wrong,’ said Mr. Curtis, who is winding down a 25-year practice representing clients in suits against lawyers. ‘Knowing the number of people in trouble and financially underwater, that started to bother me.'” —The New York Times, in an article about “leveraged moveouts”

••• Kristen Wiig lives in Tribeca. —The Guardian



  1. “$700-per-night” = $130 per night on

  2. Also, OWS doesn’t have “members”, and the New York Post isn’t really a newspaper. Whatevs, but it doesn’t deserve the good company of quotes from Tribeca Trib, DNA Info, Curbed, or the NYT, all of which at least try. (Jury’s out on the Guardian).

  3. a snorkel is a large down jacket

  4. @hi: I had never heard that before!
