In the News: Citigroup Has Renewed

Awesome fog shot from last weekend (sent in by a reader).••• Good news for area businesses: “Citigroup has signed a long-term lease to stay in its main Lower Manhattan office [388-390 Greenwich], striking a 2.6 million square-foot deal with landlord SL Green Realty Corp., according to multiple people briefed on the deal. […] The lease extends Citigroup’s presence in the building until 2035. […] Citigroup, which will do a massive overhaul of the space, plans to move employees from other New York locations to the complex once it is completed.” The photo is old, but I love it.
