In the News: The Return of Fulton Stall Market

••• How President Obama’s visit to White Street restaurant on Tuesday will affect traffic in the area. —Downtown Express

••• The Tribeca Trib looks back at 1982, when 47 Vestry was wrapped in vinyl and fumigated, in order to exterminate the Khapra beetle.

••• How would you spend a roll of quarters in Tribeca? —QuarterSaturday

••• From NotifyNYC: “There will be a fireworks display at 7:20 PM tomorrow, 10/5, over the East River near Pier 16 and the South Street Seaport in Manhattan.”

••• “I was passing by 107 Front Street at the South Street Seaport this morning and noticed that the storefront was being set up by the Fulton Stall Market. They open today as a small farmer’s market. For now it is once a week, but they plan to expand to daily operations soon. They will also be operating inside Canon’s Walk next door.” —FiDi Fan Page

••• Speaking of the FiDi Fan Page, as a reader’s behest, I asked the FFP’s Luis Vazquez-Willhelm (who is also now a public member of the CB1 FiDi Committee) whether the Fulton Center presentation the other night happened to include an opening date. “They are 99.9% done but are still doing last-minute testing,” he said. “They’ll be announcing a drop dead opening date within a few weeks.” (Photo by Philip.)

  1. The were pouring concrete in the traffic lane along that block of Fulton next to the transit center yesterday, so I guess that’s getting spiffed up before the opening. I was surprised because they usually wait for the weekends to close down a traffic lane, but it is fascinating to see how far they can pump the concrete, and watch the guys smoothing it out standing around up to their ankles in the stuff.
