  7. Tribeca residents – would you advise travel to your neighborhood 11/72012. Currently in France.

  8. @Sterling: If power comes back by then, you’ll be fine

  9. Some one knows about the hotel The Cosmopolitan in w Broadway St? I have a reservation for tonight and want to change it, but the phone does not work.


  10. Inatesso was open on Tuesday (!) night, cash only. Haven’t been past since… Hopefully they didn’t run out of dough. It was hoppin’!

  11. @Victor Vega : from the hotel’s Facebook
    “We are experiencing loss of power and are providing limited service only. We are expecting the power to be restored shortly and will update our site with new information as soon as it is available. Should you have additional questions please call our toll free reservations number, 1 – 888 – 895 -9400. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”

  12. Erik – I’d like to make another contribution to support the operations of Tribeca Citizen. Where did that button go? Having trouble finding it on my very small iPhone screen. Thx for keeping us all informed and the aggregation!!!

  13. @Kellee: That’s very sweet of you! It’s in the P.P.S. on this page:

    But—and I mean this—I’d be just as happy if you donated to an organization helping folks in New Jersey.

  14. Both a good idea!

  15. Can anyone who lives in the area tell me if there was flooding on Greenwich and Murray (near the Bank of America on the corner where Whole Foods is)? My job is there and I haven’t heard anything from the company at all.

  16. Whole Foods not only accepted credit cards — one of the managers let me use the office power to charge my laptop, and then snaked a power strip out onto the floor for others.

    BRAVO, and grateful thanks.

  17. Any word on Ritz Carlton BP? Supposed to go next weekend.
