In the News: More on the BPC monument

THE LAWN AS A TEACHING MOMENT
The Daily News ran an op-ed from a BPC resident who was one of the organizers of the effort to block the monument on the Rockefeller lawn, though I don’t agree with the headline. “First, meaningful discourse remains a powerful tool to overcome seemingly intractable positions. Second, an apology is not a sign of weakness but of leadership and strength. Third, say thank you to those who stepped out of their comfort zone to do the right thing.”

A BI-COASTAL LIFE
The Journal has a feature on the homes of Rob Willey and Remy Allis, who decamped for Portland when the pandemic began to be closer to family and decided to keep their loft here (it looks like Walker Street) and use it as a live/work space one week a month.

A SHAKSHUKA BORN AND RAISED IN TRIBECA
Forbes’ dining section has a story on the shakshuka prepared for brunch by chef Manuel Gonz├ílez Charles at the Society Cafe at the Walker Hotel Greenwich Village. Turns out he got his start in the culinary world at Marc Forgione and then Khe-Yo.

WEGMANS COMING TO THE VILLAGE
This is so not Tribeca, but it was such big Downtown news I had to include: Wegmans is opening its first Manhattan store at the former Kmart — the one you can see from the platform at the Astor Place 6 train — at 770 Broadway, the square block with Fourth, 8th and 9th. It’s 82,000 square feet and will open in 2023. –Crain’s
