In the News: The Tribeca Grand’s New Nightclub

••• “Top DJ and former Beatrice Inn kingpin Paul Sevigny [will] helm a new underground club and bar at the Tribeca Grand. That space’s set to launch in late August.” Hence the new bar? New York Post

••• “One World Trade Center is now officially the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, having reached its full 1,776-foot height. Early this morning, workers installed the final pieces of the spire.” I wish it could shoot confetti out the top. —Curbed

••• “The Museum of American Finance Offers Free Admission on Saturdays.” —Broadsheet

••• “There are no dogs allowed in Teardrop Park—but that hasn’t stopped some owners from walking their pups through the picturesque park in Battery Park City, some angry residents say.” (By “residents,” DNAinfo means Community Board 1.)
