••• Curbed tracks the changing of Tribeca’s borders over the years (turning to Soho Alliance’s Sean Sweeney for guidance…?). In my opinion, Tribeca will absorb any area that isn’t already in an established neighborhood—so it’ll take over everything north of the World Trade Center, and it’ll extend east to Lafayette (especially now that some of the Civic Center buildings—108 Leonard and 49-51 Chambers—are being converted to residential).

••• “The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is considering using $150 million in insurance proceeds to help developer Larry Silverstein finance the construction of [3 World Trade Center]. A vote, which follows several aborted attempts by the agency to spur construction, is expected at a board meeting Wednesday.” —Crain’s

••• “The 42-year-old [Kenn’s] Broome Street Bar in Soho has sold to a new owner for a reported $12 million and will soon close in preparation for its next incarnation.” —Grub Street

••• Community Board 1 is displeased with the Howard Hughes Corporation about food trucks in the South Street Seaport and the demolition of Pier 17 being different from what was specified in the ULURP process. —Downtown Post NYC

••• “Fields Good Chicken, 101 Maiden Lane, specializes in grilled and roasted chicken.” —DNAinfo

••• “About 150 [people] gathered last week at Old Slip Park in support of the New York Police Museum whose permanent location at 100 Old Slip remains closed due to outstanding Hurricane Sandy damage.” —Downtown Express
