Seen & Heard: Jin Market space for sale

JIN MARKET LEASE IS UP??
M. spied the listing for the 8000-square-foot retail condo that currently has Jin Market at 111 Hudson — and it says the space can be delivered vacant OR with the current tenant in place. Their lease expired on Nov. 30. The listing also says that space has been a grocery store for 80 years! If there’s a chance that Jin Market goes away, we are getting closer to having a neighborhood with no neighborhood conveniences.

464 GREENWICH IS FOR SALE
Former GAP CEO Mickey Drexler is selling his town house that is 464 Greenwich at Watts — built in 1892 and renovated for Drexler by local & French architect Thierry Despont as a single-family home. The building was used as a roasting plant by a variety of coffee companies including the Turkish & Arabian Coffee Company, whose signage remains on the façade. He paid $5.5 million for it in 2008; it’s listed at $29.9 million.

DRINKS IN A BANK VAULT
Trinity Place, built inside the vault at 115 Broadway originally commissioned by Andrew Carnegie for the New York Realty Bank, just reopened for the first time since the start of the pandemic. The vault has an entrance on either end, and each door weighs 35 tons. The space was restored in 2006 and now has a front dining area with a 40 foot mahogany bar set between the original five-inch steel walls.

SHOPPING GUIDE FOR DOWNTOWN
The Downtown Alliance produced a shopping guide in video form with YouTube personality Sarah Funk — it’s 17 minutes long and divided into four categories by price, starting with $25 and under at Eataly.

  1. Oh dear. I hope Hudson market stays so we have that along with Morgan’s.

  2. The Jin Market IS the Hudson Market. They say the space has been a grocery store for 80 years? Well, there was an after-hours bar there for a year or so at least, in the mid-’70’s, called Ones, or 1’s, to indicate the repeated digits of the address, and I can attest to the fact that no one went in there to to buy groceries.

  3. My dream a drink with Tony at Ones—
    we discuss the Code of the West
