In the News: Serafina Is Opening in Tribeca

••• The 25th outpost of Italian restaurant chain Serafina will be in Tribeca, but the New York Post doesn’t say where. I reached out to Serafina; we’ll see. The logical guess is in the former Dean’s space at 349 Greenwich. UPDATE: A reader says something called Wayfare is opening where Dean’s was; more on that here. So does anyone know where Serafina is coming?

••• Elisa Marshall and Ben Sormonte, owners of Maman on Centre St. in Soho, live in Tribeca. The New York Post says Maman’s chocolate chip cookie is the city’s best (and then says it “might be” the best, even though it has macadamia nuts and walnuts. I’ve only ever had the pistachio bread at Maman, which I can vouch for.)

••• “Police are searching for a man who lifted a woman’s skirt and then took a picture of her in the Fulton Street subway station on Thursday morning.” (“I have the right to determine who gets to look at my butt,” said the victim. Quote of the day!) The cops who came to deal with her complaint didn’t  know there were surveillance cameras, and then it turns out they weren’t running anyway. —DNAinfo

••• The kids at P.S./I.S. 276 in Battery Park City have taken in a lost parrot; they’ve named it Gerald Rainbow Fluttershine Charger. —Tribeca Trib

••• “The foundation that runs the 9/11 Memorial and Museum has gone to court to allege the Port Authority’s construction of the sacred site is “incomplete and deficient.” —New York Post

••• The pedestrian bridge “known colloquially among local residents as the ‘Red Bridge,’ has for decades crossed over Liberty Street, connecting the buildings formerly known as One and Two World Financial Center, which were re-christened recently as 200 Liberty Street and 225 Liberty Street. This bridge was shut down on April 27. Its owner, Brookfield Properties, plans to disassemble it completely and replace it with a new viaduct, a process that it expected to take more than a year.” —Broadsheet

••• “Trinity Church is selling the lavish Soho town house that the Rev. James Cooper demanded as his home when he became rector of the historic Manhattan church in 2004. The controversial rector retired in February and Trinity recently put the Charlton Street home on the market for $12 million.” —New York Post

••• “The home of the Lower East Side’s Sunshine Cinema is quietly being shopped around as a development site.” —Real Deal
