••• “If a classic six and a loft had a love child, it might look like Adam Ford’s three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo, which sits near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel. ‘I like the area because it still has a raw and industrial feel,’ says Ford, 37, a lawyer and the founder of Atsby Vermouth, a company that produces the fortified wine on the North Fork of Long Island. Walk inside the 14-story downtown building, past the 24-hour concierge and Zen meditation garden, and the din of the city disappears.” —New York Post, which did Ford no favor by mentioning his building’s amenities right after that quote.

••• “City Comptroller John Liu says South Street Seaport leaseholder and developer Howard Hughes Corp. owes the city nearly $1.8 million in unpaid rent.” —Downtown Express
