In the News: Pig-Ear Tacos

••• “Changing thousands of Financial District apartments from market rate to rent stabilized was supposed to be an important part of an effort to remake the fast-growing area into a family-centered neighborhood. But the organizers have run into a surprising problem: Few people have stepped up for one of New York’s coveted prizes, a rent-stabilized apartment.” —Wall Street Journal

••• Downtown Lunch is excited about reports of pig-ear tacos at a new taco truck in FiDi.

••• “Please welcome back to the land of the living No. 22 Renwick, one of several buildings on tiny Renwick Street to face a disproportionate amount of boom-and-bust drama. DelShah Capital has acquired the mortgage debt at the building, according to a press release, and will finance the completion of construction. The apartments should come to market in early 2013.” —Curbed

••• Broadsheet reports on “the trial of actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer, who is accused of killing longtime Battery Park City resident and community activist Helene Zucker Seeman while driving drunk in June, 2010.”

••• “A corner deli steps from the NYPD’s headquarters is taking an unusual tack by shunning beer and cigarettes in favor of dishing out gourmet food.” That might be the most relative use of “gourmet” I’ve ever seen. —DNAinfo
