In the News: Pedestrian Hit by Falling Scaffolding

••• “A pedestrian was struck by a falling piece of scaffolding […] around 2:15 p.m. Friday on Barclay Street near Greenwich Street. The pedestrian was rushed to Bellevue.” —CBS New York

••• Little Park now serves Peking duck for four on weekends. Also mentioned in Grub Street‘s duck roundup: Tetsu, Frenchette.

••• Actor Steve Schirripa is the subject of the New York Times‘s “Sunday Routine” column. It doesn’t say which neighborhood he lives in—just Manhattan, which is lame—but mentions places in Harry’s Italian in Battery Park City and Barnes & Noble in Tribeca. (Presumably Schirripa still lives in Battery Park City.)

••• “The Actors Studio Drama School at Pace University is currently exhibiting its annual repertory season of plays at the 3-Legged Dog Art & Technology Center in Lower Manhattan. This weekend, and during the following four weeks, the two organizations are partnering to offer six shows staged by students graduating with MFA degrees in acting, directing, and playwriting. All of these performances are free to attend.” —Broadsheet

••• “The founder of a New York City–based co-working company that federal prosecutors say was a $37 million Ponzi scheme appeared in U.S. District Court on Friday. Renwick Haddow, a 49-year-old British citizen who began opening Bar Works locations in the city in 2015, had fled to Morocco last year after charges were filed against him by both the U.S. attorney’s office and the Securities and Exchange Commission. Haddow was apprehended by Moroccan authorities last summer.” There were two Bar Works locations in Tribeca—one on Chambers (below), and one on White (which never opened). —Crain’s
