In the News: The Hypocrisy of Andrew Cuomo

••• “Collecting With a Conscience: At Home With Tribeca’s Bernard Lumpkin and Carmine Boccuzzi.” Artspace takes a look around their Tribeca apartment.

••• “Governor Andrew Cuomo spent much of the last week [stumping] for his avowed goal of enacting a mandatory minimum wage of $15 per hour for every employee, public or private, in the State of New York. But an agency that he directly controls, the Battery Park City Authority appears to be disregarding this policy by paying security guards $12.50 per hour, which is significantly less than guards working for the same company earn when assigned to do the same work for other State agencies. At the same time, the Authority is paying the firm that employs these guards a richer margin of profit than that company earns for the same work at other State agencies.” —Broadsheet

••• “Artists Loft, at 181 Front St. [in the Seaport], is planning to serve drinks and small bites, while also being an active gallery space, co-owner Harry Young said.” —DNAinfo

••• 100 Barclay and 101 Wall are among the buildings where people are buying furnished apartments because they’re unimaginative busy. —New York Times
