••• Elliot Tebele, founder of Fuck Jerry, lives in Tribeca. My husband will be verklempt; he loves the Instagram account. —Coveteur

••• More on the 10 Corso Como store opening at the Seaport District tomorrow. The article says Roberto Cavalli is opening at the mall, something I don’t think we previously knew. (UPDATE: The Cavalli store is a pop-up.) —New York Times

••• Recent thefts. —Tribeca Trib

••• Fashion Week restaurant advice from an editor at Teen Vogue. —Grub Street

••• “Brookdale Senior Living, the largest owner and operator of senior living communities throughout the United States, is selling its local outpost, Brookdale Battery Park, located at the corner of Chambers Street and North End Avenue, for $194 million. The purchaser is a real estate investment trust, Ventas, which invests primarily in properties serving various aspects of the healthcare industry.” —Broadsheet

••• “A little over a year after the former headquarters of the New York Stock Exchange [20 Broad] were cleared for a luxury conversion, leasing is now underway on the 29-story building’s 533 rentals. […] The apartments here feature nearly 10-foot-tall ceilings, expansive city views, stripped oak flooring, quartz countertops and backsplashes, and in-unit washers and dryers by Bosch. Of the total units, 75 have private outdoor space.” —Curbed



  1. Will miss seeing the seniors eating at their little restaurant on the way to Rockefeller. My kids would always wave and smile :)

  2. But wait are they going to kick all the sweet seniors out? This is terrible.

  3. They aren’t going to kick the seniors out, Brookdale sold the real estate but will likely still be operating the property. The buyer, Ventas, is one of the largest owners of senior living properties in the country and owns a lot of the real estate that Brookdale operates around the country.

    As The Broadsheet article noted the BPCA mandates that the property “shall be operated as a senior housing facility and for no other use or purpose.”

    In fact they just applied for a liquor license so dinnertime (and breakfast?) should be more jolly than ever…
