  1. any idea which retailers are going into the fulton street subway hub?

  2. Ugh! Not Taylor Swift! If she’s bought here it means she must be stalking some poor, naive Tribecan male!

  3. I’m very naive

  4. Now, now Brenna – where is your sisterly love?

  5. This is a terrific Tribeca Citizen. Whenever I despair that you have sampled one too many creme brulees, you do spread the word on a major community issue like the potential architectural and cultural destruction of 67 Vestry Street. The roots of this community – visually and ontologically – are found in buildings like 67 Vestry.

  6. That is so cool. But why Tribeca?
