Booze at the Regal Battery Park Cinemas

From Community Board 1…. The agendas can be seen here, and they often change without notice. My comments are indented on the line below.

Like this.

1/2 Battery Park City Committee – 6:00 PM
Location: Metropolitan College, 60 West Street
1) Renovation of 225 Liberty Street – Discussion
2) BPCA Parks User Count & Survey – Presentation by Abby Ehrlich, Director of Community Partnerships & Public Art, BPCA and Michelle A. Ronda, Program Coordinator & Assistant Professor, Criminal Justice, BMCC
3) 311 Integration with the Battery Park City Authority – Resolution
4) Allied Universal Report, Update on SPO – Patrick Murphy, Director of Security, Allied Universal
5) BPCA Report – Nicholas Sbordone, Vice President of Communications & Public Affairs, BPCA

1/8 Youth & Education Committee – 6:00 PM
Location: Community Board 1 – Conference Room 1 Centre Street, Room 2202A-North
1) Request for SCA/DOE to acquire the 14th floor of 26 Broadway for Millennium High School– Followup

1/8 Transportation & Street Activity Permits Committee – 6:00 PM
Location: Manhattan Borough President’s Office 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor – North
1) Street Activity Permit application for American Heart Association Wall Street Run and Heart Walk (Liberty between Church and Broadway; Water between Old Slip and Coenties Slip; Murray between W. Broadway and West Street; Greenwich between Barclay and Murray); Thursday, May 16, 2019; 6-7 p.m. – Resolution

This event is a bruiser because it happens during rush hour.

2) Pace University
—Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall Subway Station Signage – Vanessa J. Herman, AVP of Government & Community Relations & Lindsay Owen, Program Coordinator of Government & Community Relations
—Spruce Street Safety – Joseph Colella, President of Pace’s Student Government Association

I’d wager that Pace wants “Pace University” wayfinding signs put up in the Brooklyn Bridge (4/5/6) and City Hall (R) subway stations. Here’s hoping it’s not trying to actually change the names of the stations themselves.

3) Proposed legislation related to the legalization of e-bikes and e-scooters (Int. No 1250, 1264, 1265, 1266) – Discussion & possible resolution
4) New stop sign requests – Discussion
5) Parking rate increases – Discussion

1/9 Licensing & Permits Committee – 6:00 PM
Location: Manhattan Borough President’s Office 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor – South
Additional information about specific State Liquor Authority license applications is available by request to the Community Board 1 Office approvals@cb.nyc.gov.

Battery Park City
1) 102 North End Avenue, application for liquor license for Regal Cinemas, Inc. d/b/a Regal Cinemas – Resolution

iPic already serves alcohol, and Alamo Drafthouse will. So the Regal might as well, too.

2) The following notices have been received for renewal, upgrade, corporate change, minor alteration or transfer of wine and beer or liquor licenses, renewal of sidewalk cafe permits and recurring street closure permits:
—60 Pine Street, application for liquor license renewal for Down Town Association, d/b/a Down Town Association

60 Pine would be in FiDi, not Battery Park City.

Seaport/Civic Center
1) 89 South Street, Building D/E, application for liquor license for MF Seaport, LLC d/b/a Malibu Farm – Resolution

Tribeca
1) 6 Murray Street, application for liquor license for Murray Street Restaurant Company LLC, d/b/a The Whisky Tribeca – Resolution

Held over from November. It’s where Manhattan Proper is now.

2) 452 Washington Street, application for method of operation change for Tribeca Bakery LLC, d/b/a Greca – Resolution

Presumably related to its recent shift to a full-service restaurant.

3) 130 West Broadway, application for method of operation change for change in ownership corporation for HLD Tribeca LLC, d/b/a Sushi of Gari Tribeca – Resolution
4) 174 Hudson Street, application for liquor license for The Wondrous Inc., d/b/a The Wonder – Resolution

A “family social space and café”; discussed here.

Financial District
1) 151 Maiden Lane, application for liquor license for CP Maiden Lane LLC, d/b/a AC Hotel New York City Downtown – Resolution

Last I wrote about 151 Maiden Lane, it was going to be a 60-story condo tower. Maybe part of it is hotel now? (AC is apparently yet another Marriott brand.)

2) 84 South Street, application for liquor license for HHC Blockhouse, LLC, d/b/a TBD– Resolution

Mysterious! “HHC” stands for Howard Hughes Corporation, the developer of the Seaport District, but I have no idea where 84 South might be.

3) The following notices have been received for renewal, upgrade, corporate change, minor alteration or transfer of wine and beer or liquor licenses, renewal of sidewalk cafe permits and recurring street closure permits:
—261 Water Street, application for liquor license renewal for T Bone Inc., d/b/a Mark Joseph Steakhouse
—20 Maiden Lane aka 51 Nassau Street, application for liquor license renewal for HCIN Maiden Hotel Associates LLC, HCIN Maiden Hotel Lessee LLC, Hersha Hospitality Management LP, and Butler House 1 LLC, d/b/a Holiday Inn Wall Street and Ello’s Fine Foods
—75 Maiden Lane, application for liquor license renewal for Ladamanyc, Inc. d/b/a Hen Pen NYC

1/10 Landmarks & Preservation Committee – 6:00 PM
Location: Community Board 1 – Conference Room, 1 Centre Street, Room 2202A-North
1) Peck Slip Redesign – Presentation by Parks Department (Tentative)
2) 200 Church Street, proposal to add rolling gate to secure alcove – Resolution

The stairs attract homeless people.

3) 31 Leonard Street, proposal to renovate warehouse for residential use and restoration of exterior of building – Resolution

29-31 Leonard (above) and 198 W. Broadway are being converted to residential. It’ll be interesting to see what the developer plans to do to the exterior—especially in regard to the one-story component on W. Broadway.

4) 71 Broadway, proposal to add ADA ramp – Resolution

1/14 Land Use, Zoning & Economic Development Committee – 6:00 PM
Location: Manhattan Borough President’s Office, 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor – South
1) 250 Water St, Brownfield Cleanup Program – Presentation by Adam Meister, Howard Hughes Corporation & Mimi Raygorodetsky, Langan

1/15 Waterfront, Parks & Resiliency Committee – 6:00 PM
Location: Community Board 1 – Conference Room, 1 Centre Street, Room 2202A-North
1) Public Design Commission application for concession stand under the FDR Drive – Resolution
2) Waterfront Edge Design Guidelines (WEDG) – Update by Sarah Dougherty, Waterfront Alliance
3) Brooklyn Bridge Esplanade – Update by Economic Development Corporation & Starr Whitehouse
4) Warren Street Dog Run – Update by Terese Flores, Regional Park Manager, NYC Parks (Invited)
5) Barnett Newman Triangle – Update (Tentative)

That’s the wedge between Sixth Avenue and Church Street, which DDG—developer of 100 Franklin—pledged to make into a park.

1.17 Quality of Life & Service Delivery Committee – 6:00 PM
Location: Community Board 1 – Conference Room, 1 Centre Street, Room 2202A-North
1) Proliferation of film permits being issued on streets with alternate side paring regulations to productions for non-filming purposes – Update from Board member Marc Ameruso
2)  MTA Group Station Manager Program – Presentation by James LaMorte, New York City Transit
3) Using the Citizen App – Presentation by Dennis Prince Mapp, Community Manager, Citizen App

No relation.

Location: Manhattan Borough President’s Office, 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor – South
1) Agenda to be determined

1/22 CB 1 Monthly Meeting – 6:00 PM
Location: Manhattan Municipal Building, 1 Centre Street, Mezzanine North Entrance

  1. 151 Maiden Lane is the AC Marriott Hotel. 161 right next door is the new Condo which has topped out and be delivered for occupancy later in 2019.

  2. HHC does stand for Howard Hughes Corp and I think the Blockhouse will be the new name for the retail space underneath the FDR overpass that housed FDR (Food Drink River) which opened last Spring and closed about two months ago.
