Seen & Heard: New Starbucks in Brookfield Place

••• D. noticed that Starbucks appears to be is opening a café in Brookfield Place, on the upper level of 250 Vesey, above Amada. UPDATE 6/29: As you can see from the second photo, there’s no doubt about it. Also, how lovely if the café has that window.

••• While wearing a Tribeca Citizen T-shirt today, I ran into two lovely readers, who asked where they could find such a treasure. The shirt shop is here (and there’s always a link in the left column.)

  1. 456 Washington garage is very small … Just a few spots. posted parking rate is $1100+ Month … Hmmm…

  2. Starbucks is open now. Looks a lot more upscale than the usual branch. They call it the reserve bar.
