In the News: Cyclist Hit by Truck

••• “A bicyclist was clinging to life Friday after he was hit by a crane truck in Tribeca, officials said. The cyclist, who police describe as a man in his 50s, was hit at the intersection of Hudson and Laight just after 6:40 p.m.” —Daily News

••• Fitness instructor Taryn Toomey’s “tips on how to find zen and stay in shape—or at least, not fall prey to the madness—in between all the shows (or whenever).” Also: “Later this month, Toomey will debut a fine jewelry line and open an outpost in Los Angeles.” —T Magazine

••• Tribeca Trib has a rendering of City Vineyard, as well as the menu, which is along the lines of what you’d find at City Winery.

••• The Old New York Page on Facebook featured this photo of “Ridley’s Candies, established 1806. Chambers and Hudson Streets, 1896. Photo by Robert L. Bracklow.” The photo is credited to Digital Culture of Metropolitan New York, which says the photo is in the Robert L. Bracklow Collection at the New York Historical Society. UPDATE: See the comments for more on Ridley’s, this photo, and the second photo, which I just added.

  1. If the elevated tracks run N/S, we’re looking west, & that’s the McDonald’s, right?

  2. You are looking North up Hudson. The small building is where One Hudson stands today. If you look up Hudson the first building on the right is 16 Hudson where HSBC is now. They added a floor to that building in later years. 16 Hudson is actually 4 building combined into one co-op. The end of those buildings (2nd one) is where Brushstroke is located. You see a 3rd building jutting out a bit, that is Duane and Hudson where Bouley’s is now.
