Seen & Heard: New Entrances at the World Trade Center PATH Station

••• “Two new entrances are key additions as there is way too much pedestrian congestion at rush hour right now,” says a daily rider of the PATH train to the World Trade Center. (See the sign below.) “Every morning at rush hour there’s a mad dash to the steps to get out or you are stuck waiting in a very long line. I have seen a person trampled more than once.”

WTC PATH signage••• @Hercmannyc reports that the Simit + Smith restaurant at 100 William has been dark for a few days now.

••• Love this sketch by Dan Archer (@archcomix)!

WBroadway sketch by archcomix••• This Sunday there’s a walking tour called “Margot Gayle’s Tribeca.” From the release: “Join the Archive Project’s first walking tour focused on preservation history, during which esteemed guide Anthony W. Robins will lead us through the world of advocate extraordinaire Margot Gayle. From her first foray into historic preservation, saving the Jefferson Market Courthouse, to co-founding the Victorian Society in America, Gayle has left an indelible mark on the preservation field.” Tickets are $50.

••• The plywood is down at the 70 Lafayette (at Franklin) storefront—and it’s looking good. (Thanks to the reader who sent in the pic.) There’s a rendering here.

Lafayette••• I meant to mention: If you love smart interesting movies, go see Clouds of Sils Maria at IFC. There’s nothing Tribeca about it.

••• “Bus stop has finally returned to N. Moore and Hudson after four, maybe five years.,” emailed Robert A. Ripps. “I know it closed when my son Max was in middle school, and this year he graduates high school.”
