••• “Renderings of the finished section of [Hudson River Park], which completes the esplanade between Laight and North Moore Street and includes an area near Pier 25 for large gatherings, were shown to a Community Board 1 committee on Monday.” It includes a dog run and “what the Trust calls a ‘dance floor,’ large enough to hold about 2,000 people.” —Tribeca Trib

••• “LoLo, which stands for Lower Lower Manhattan, is one of the first proposals from the Center for Urban Real Estate, a new research group at Columbia University. The neighborhood would be created by connecting Lower Manhattan and Governors Island with millions of cubic yards of landfill, similar to how Battery Park City was born in the 1970s. Over 20 to 30 years, the center estimates, LoLo would create 88 million square feet of development and generate $16.7 billion in revenue for the city. It may be an impossible project, because there are strict regulations on building with landfill.” —New York Times

••• “Picasso Pizzeria, located at 303 South End Avenue, has inspired some debate about the reasons for its abrupt closing on Friday. New York City Buildings Department permits were posted on Friday afternoon, but witnesses noted seeing a health violation displayed in the window prior to the posting of the building permits.” —Broadsheet Daily
