Seen & Heard: City cars towed from Reade Street

PLACARD PARKERS TOWED
A. sent over this photo of a city car originally documented by V. being towed from Reade. Notice too how the car is being transported through a rainbow! Hopefully the first of many to come?

CONCERT TONIGHT IN WMP CANCELLED DUE TO SOGGY LAWN
Assuming the rain stays away,  Roly Poly Guacamole will rock Washington Market Park tonight at 5:30p. Rain date is Sept. 19.

OCULUS GREENMARKET BACK OUTSIDE
The Oculus Greenmarket moved outside as of this week and will be back out on the plaza every Tuesday from 7a to 7p. This past January, a move inside the Oculus allowed the market to stay open throughout the winter; it’s now a year-round Greenmarket. Here’s the line-up:

  • 1857 Spirits, Barbers Farm Distillery | Handcrafted potato vodka from Schoharie County, NY
  • Francesca’s II Bakery | Breads and baked goods from Middlesex County, NJ
  • Meredith’s Country Bakery | Baked goods from Ulster County, NY
  • Riverine Ranch | Water Buffalo meat and cheeses from Warren County, NJ
  • Roxbury Mountain Maple | Maple syrup and maple products from Delaware County, NY
  • Samascott Orchards, Nine Pin Ciderworks | Orchard fruit, strawberries, and cider from Columbia County, NY
  • Cedar Hill Farm, Kernan Farms | Fruits and vegetables from Cumberland County, New Jersey
  • Pet-al Plants | Plants and flowers from Camden County, New Jersey (starting on June 18th)
  • Savoie Organic Farm Certified Organic vegetables and potted plants from Gloucester County, NJ

THRU TRAFFIC ON PARK PLACE
It looks like Park Place is finally open, despite the signs that say it is not. The saga of 21 Park Place is far from over, however, with the surrounding buildings – including those on the south side of Murray — still unstable and unoccupied.

  1. 311 at work! I called them yesterday and ended being transferred to the police and giving them all the license plate numbers. They said they were waiting for a private tower to take those cars away, but that they’d follow up and make sure it was done right away. :)

    • Ha! Just saw the lengthy conversation preceding this…so looks like I just had lucky timing and they were ready to do something about it. Oh well, felt pretty good there for the moment.

  2. Wonderful news that the cars were finally moved. So absurd they could sit there for weeks without moving!

  3. One that was in front of Laser Away on Duane was removed last night as well.
