••• Asaka Sushi at 321 Broadway has closed (only four months after either opening or changing its name from Natsu).

••• The windows in the ground-floor space in the Pearline Soap Factory building (left; at Washington and Laight)—formerly Tachi Gallery—have been papered. Could something be coming there? (Or are they cleaning up flood damage?) Also, does anyone know if the windows at the old TriBeCafe/Ristorante Aglio space on Church have been newspapered for a while? Wondering if there’s action there, too….

••• From a reader: “I was wondering if you’re hearing about continued Time Warner outages in the neighborhood? I’m on Leonard Street and have not had internet service since power came back on. I’ve called or emailed them everyday and have received no information. Was curious if others are having similar problems—misery loves company.” I don’t have cable, so I don’t know anything about it. Do you?

••• From the World Financial Center: “Know of any nonprofits or small businesses displaced by #Hurricane #Sandy? They get can get free space at the WFC.”
