In the News: Henrik Lundqvist Moved Here

Henrik Lundqvist by Joel Marklund courtesy The Henrik Lundqvist Blog••• New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist moved to Tribeca, like everyone else on the team: “There are schools and kindergartens, and many of the guys on the team live down here,” he told the Henrik Lundqvist Blog. “And then, the spaces differently down here. More loft, more open space than the Upper West Side. We fell for Tribeca.” (Photo by Joel Marklund.) UPDATE: Ladies sure do love cool Hank! On Facebook, the comments are mainly women notifying other women about this news.

••• “The US House of Representatives has passed a bill aimed at awarding up to $25 million a year to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in a controversial funding program. The bill designates the twin pools at the site of the fallen Twin Towers, where the names of 9/11 victims are engraved on bronze panels, as a national memorial. It also sets up a seven-year grant program—the first time federal funds would go for operations, officials said.” —New York Post

••• “Visitors to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum have tossed thousands of dollars worth of coins into the twin pools, even though it’s against the rules. The memorial tallied $2,735 in ‘cash found on property’ in 2014, according to its latest financial filings.” —New York Post



  1. I’ve been hearing a lot of anecdotes about phone snatching around town, but I witnessed it last Thursday night around 9:00 while running. Two kids on bicycles rode up behind a woman on the west side of Sixth Avenue just below Grand. She screamed and tried to chase them (as did I) but they were off in a flash.

    It can’t hurt to remind people to be conscious while using phones in public. They’re easy pickings.

  2. Lundqvist is one of the best goalies in hockey and would have had two championships over the past three years if only the Rangers could have scored some goals in the playoffs. But he is also a local businessman, as one of the owners of Tiny’s on West Broadway.
