Seen & Heard: Chinese Delivery Recommendations?

••• I don’t know if we’ve seen this rendering yet for plaza on the east (memorial) side of 1 World Trade Center. I was pleased that it’s under construction and that there will be seating—the area needs outdoor seating, and at what point can some be put in the memorial proper? But I was displeased to be yelled at by a construction worker who told me to back away from the signage. Why put it up if people aren’t supposed to look at it?

••• Another store is closing in the Westfield World Trade Center mall, reports the reader known as Hudson River: “Vince Camuto is closing Wednesday. 75% off on everything in the store, which is only shoes at this point.” Meanwhile, the bed/bedding brand Casper has opened next door.

••• It’s been two years since I asked for advice on where to order in Chinese food—and perhaps new options have come to light, what with Caviar, Uber Eats, etc. So email them to tribecacitizen@gmail.com and I’ll round them up in a new post. (The name of the restaurant is crucial, and feel free to suggest specific dishes.)

  1. Also, the location of the Waterfront, Parks & Resiliency Committee meeting on February 20 has been changed from the CB1 office to the Southbridge Towers Community Room at 90 Beekman Street.

    One of the topics to be discussed then is adding Saturday and Sunday work hours starting as early as 9AM at Bogardus Park to make up lost time from delays related to unexpected site conditions. As usual, CB1 welcomes local residents’ feedback so please attend or forward your comments to man01@cb.nyc.gov
