In the News: Seaport Ice Rink Not Free After All

••• “Skaters expecting to hit the ice for free at the Seaport’s new rink are getting the freeze after the rink changed the admission price to $10 per head.” Plus you have to pay to rent skates and check bags ($8! But it’s a mall! Don’t they want people to buy crap?!). —DNAinfo

••• The sale of beautiful old 346 Broadway closed (now that a lawsuit got avoided); the Peebles Corp. is partnering with Elad, the developer behind 250 West and Franklin Place. The Commercial Observer says that the community space—a bone the city threw to the neighborhood instead of a school—is to be “characterized by visual arts and planned as an outlet for emerging artists.”

••• Joy Gryson is opening a boutique in Boerum Hill. —New York Times
