••• “While the Howard Hughes Corp. awaits approval for its proposed 50-story hotel and condo tower with retail space, among other developments, it is also formulating a plan for a new food market that could top 40,000 square feet, sources said. The Seaport is talking to various celebrity chefs […] to curate the marketplace experience [….] The Seaport is considering a more globally diverse marketplace with select specialty foods as seen through the eyes of one master chef.” Can we agree that when we’re talking about that whole neighborhood, it’s the Seaport, and when we’re talking about the Hughes part, it’s the South Street Seaport? That’s what I do, anyway. P.S. The Post doesn’t mention that Brookfield Place is also doing a marketplace, albeit à la française. —New York Post
