••• “The big law firm of Jones Day announced that it has taken a 330,000 square foot block of office space at Brookfield Place.” —Crain’s

••• Serious Eats writes an ode to Square Diner (the atmosphere, anyway).

••• Governor Cuomo has until midnight tomorrow to sign the bill that allows Hudson River Park to sell its air rights. —New York Daily News
