••• “‘One guy got his feet wet, the rest of them were dry,’ said one of the crew members of a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers boat that rescued three men whose small boat capsized Tuesday afternoon near the Battery Park City ferry terminal. The crew, he said, spotted the men standing on the hull of their boat.” —Tribeca Trib

••• A writer for the Observer wasn’t into her stretching session at Lymbr.

••• Daytonian in Manhattan on the history of 388 Broadway, where “contracts for Union uniforms were a boon to tenants in the 1860s.”

••• Thefts and a mugging in the Tribeca Trib police blotter.

••• “A parent leader is calling upon the City’s Department of Education and the administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio to increase diversity in Manhattan’s District 2, which includes Lower Manhattan, as well as the East Side south of 97th Street (with the exception of the Lower East Side) and the West Side south of 59th street. Shino Tanikawa, who serves as vice president of the District 2’s Community Education Council—a panel responsible for advising and commenting on educational policies, and providing input to the Department of Education on matters of concern to the district—wants each middle school in District 2 to be required to accept a broader spectrum of students, representing a wider range academic achievement levels.” —Broadsheet

It’s at 32 Mulberry, just above Worth. —Eater



  1. I actually disagree; seems like the Lymbr reviewer quite enjoyed her session (if not the price)!

  2. The Lymbr session sounds fantastic. Especially for those of us who have had a lot of body work like deep tissue massage and Rolfing done. The critic initially held her lack of knowledge about what they do against them but yea, I agree, sounds like the session was a success for the most part but not the price.
