In the News: ATM Mugging

••• The Wall Street Journal comes late to the “East Tribeca”/”Broadway corridor” real estate story (and totally misses all the new projects coming). There is this amusing typo, though: “Shops carrying bespoke items such as Steven Alan, an eight-year fixture on Franklin Street, and Best Made Co., which opened eight months ago on White Street, help give the area a gentile, if not curated feel.”

••• A mugging at the Bank of America at Broadway and Warren is among the Tribeca Trib‘s police blotter items. It happened at 4:20 p.m. on a Thursday. There’s also a weird story involving a BB gun.

••• “Owners of the popular Upper East Side craft beer bar Off the Rails will soon be pouring brews in the Seaport.” It’ll be where short-lived SamSara was, and it’ll serve “gastropub” food. —DNAinfo

••• “Barring an abrupt change in course by the Mayor and the Governor, the agency that has worked to mitigate the impact of construction on the Lower Manhattan community since the onset of rebuilding that followed the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 will soon shut down. The Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center is officially slated to disappear as of December 31.” Sheldon Silver is going to host a conference about it. —Broadsheet

••• “Opportunity in Tribeca lost, and quantified, as buyer delay over that darn storm at 92 Laight Street loft cost about $200,000.” —Manhattan Loft Guy

••• “Owner Avtar Walia is closing Tamarind Flatiron just a few weeks shy of its thirteenth anniversary, because the site of the East 22nd Street restaurant will become a new building. […] Walia says all staff (and the menu) will migrate downtown to merge with the three-year-old, 11,000-square-foot Tamarind Tribeca.” So will Tamarind Tribeca just be known as Tamarind from now on? —Grub Street
