In the News: Street Closures

••• “Drivers are advised to avoid lower Manhattan Tuesday due to street closures as the Giants are set to march […] in a ticker-tape parade honoring their Super Bowl win. The parade kicks off at 11 a.m. at the Battery before moving north to City Hall.

Called ‘TSTSITW,’ or ‘The Smallest Traveling Store in the World,’ the shop showcases the designers’ clothes alongside medical accessories like a hospital bed and a dentist’s lamp.” Through Feb. 23. —Racked

••• “Karl Fischer’s 24 story tower dormitory for Pace University is beginning to rise at 180 Broadway and John Street. A reader’s photos show the first three floors going up at the construction site, all slated for retail in the new building, and it looks like the first two will be part of one store.” —Curbed
