In the News: Steven Alan Sample Sale

Seaport City••• The Wall Street Journal gathers all the objections to Bloomberg’s proposal for a “Seaport City” on the East Side.

••• “The world’s largest solar-powered boat (and the first to circumnavigate the globe) arrived in North Cove Marina yesterday.” —Broadsheet

••• “Tourists Memorialize Brooklyn Bridge Visits With Ugly Graffiti Tags.” —DNAinfo

••• “It is not often that you see weather impacts in Manhattan loft listings or sales, or that you see lofts for sale that have actually been wrecked (as in destroyed) as opposed to having been allowed to decay. The recently sold ‘2,973 sq ft’ Manhattan loft #1A at 79 Laight Street (United States Sugar Warehouse) fell squarely in the post-super storm flood and was, as the updated listing put it, “damaged by the hurricane and needs a full gut renovation.’ Unlike the neighbor in a similar position, these owners decided not to fix the place but to leave it to new owners to ‘imagine what your [imagination] will do….'” [Numbers being crunched.] —Manhattan Loft Guy

••• Not at all related to Lower Manhattan, but proof I do sometimes have life beyond here: I have an article in the new Travel + Leisure.

And now a few items that belong in Seen & Heard but I already posted it today and time is running out….

••• @LMCC tweeted that tonight’s Laurie Anderson performance (with drones!) has been moved from outside at Rockefeller Park to inside Stuyvesant High School (so maybe no drones!). The show is at  8 p.m., and tickets will be distributed first-come, first-served from 6:30 p.m. but doors don’t open till 7:30 p.m.

••• Steven Alan‘s online-only sample sale starts tomorrow (Wednesday) at time TBA and runs till midnight Saturday. Expect men’s, women’s, and home. I’ll add it to the Summer Sale Report….
