In the News: Maserati Is Leaving Tribeca

••• In early 2017, the Maserati of Manhattan dealership currently at 1 York will move to Eleventh Ave. and W. 47th St. —Wall Street Journal

••• “Assemblyman Robert Rodriguez, D-Manhattan, introduced a bill Wednesday to implement the Move New York Fair Plan. It would create a standard toll, $5.54 with E-ZPass or $8 without, around the central business district, matching the Queens-Midtown and Brooklyn-Battery tunnels’ tolls. […] In addition to the East River bridges, 60th Street in Manhattan would become a tolling point for vehicles passing north or south. Money would be collected using digital-recording technology so drivers would not have to slow down to pay.” This remains the only way to fix the traffic on Canal Street. —Crain’s

••• The Tribeca Film Festival pulled the anti-vaccine film. De Niro’s full statement: “My intent in screening this film was to provide an opportunity for conversation around an issue that is deeply personal to me and my family. But after reviewing it over the past few days with the Tribeca Film Festival team and others from the scientific community, we do not believe it contributes to or furthers the discussion I had hoped for. The Festival doesn’t seek to avoid or shy away from controversy. However, we have concerns with certain things in this film that we feel prevent us from presenting it in the Festival program. We have decided to remove it from our schedule.”

••• “A Queens man was arrested in an attempted rape at a Battery Park hotel [the Conrad] Sunday when he returned to the scene of the alleged crime to retrieve his phone, police sources said.” —New York Post

••• “Community Board 1 is calling on City officials who are planning a new elementary school in the Financial District to expand the project to include more school seats, a middle school, and a full-sized gymnasium.” —Broadsheet

••• So delighted to be included in Good Stock’s Founder Friday series! In exchange, however, I expect the vegan chili to reappear on the home delivery menu soon.
