••• The New York Times looks at the (now gone) 1875 Tribune Building on Park Row: “The Tribune moved out in the 1920s, and in the 1950s the last of the newspapers left Park Row. Demolished in 1966 to expand the Pace College campus, Hunt’s building disappeared almost without comment, although Thomas S. Buechner, then director of the Brooklyn Museum, wrote to The Times that its loss was ‘heartbreaking,’ describing it as ‘a sumptuous Victorian conglomerate in glorious Ruskinian color.'”

••• The New York Post on various Tribeca real estate developments: “former New Jersey Net Richard Jefferson, now with the Golden State Warriors, has found a buyer for his full-floor, 3,584-square-foot condo” at 169 Hudson. 2) “Aliza Waksal, daughter of ImClone’s Sam Waksal, is also selling her unit” in 169 Hudson. “Aliza wasn’t charged for selling $2.5 million of stock after being tipped off by her father. Her defense? She was selling stock to purchase the 169 Hudson pad […]. The 3,752-square-foot unit, now listed for $4.995 million, is in contract.” 3) “A Tribeca apartment [in 25 Leonard] that once belonged to “Sopranos” star Jamie-Lynn Sigler is changing hands once again.” An apartment that once belonged to Jamie-Lynn Sigler is newsworthy?
