courtesy-sky-ting••• Sky Ting Yoga‘s new studio, opens Saturday. You’ll find “a custom Smile to Go menu, curated beauty offerings from Moon Juice, CAP Beauty, and Benshen, and a Higher Dose infrared sauna, as well as two large, sun-filled rooms and one small studio for more specialty classes and workshops.” (When I first posted about Yoga Vida’s new studio yesterday, I forgot to include Sky Ting among the studios opening in Tribeca this season. The total is four: Sweat Yoga, Yoga Vida, Sky Ting Yoga, and YogaSpark.) —Vogue

••• A whale was spotted near Liberty Island. —DNAinfo UPDATE 11/20: There’s a photo here.

••• Some of the changes that are being considered for Wagner Park include replacing the pavilion where Gigino is, making the esplanade contiguous (it’s blocked by Pier A), and adding more food and beverage outlets. —Tribeca Trib

••• “The Florida-based Offshore Sailing School that operated out of North Cove Marina for the last two years is packing up its dinghys and moving out, so the marina’s management has to find a replacement by next summer, since maintaining a sailing school is a requirement of its lease with the Battery Park City Authority. Some locals see it as an opportunity to encourage the marina manager, Brookfield Properties, to find an operator with more of a focus on the community, such as Offshore’s popular predecessor, longtime North Cove sailing headmaster and Battery Park City resident Commodore Michael Fortenbaugh.” —Downtown Express

••• More thefts. (Who carries around $5,000 in cash?!) Also: A woman beat a ticket seller with her cane, although why is not clear. —Tribeca Trib
