  • What do you expect from Pace "University"? -- students who couldn't buy their way in to NYU or New School and was rejected by Baruch but think and act like they are attending Columbia just because Pace is in the city; an overpriced four-year community college spewing out graduates that end up in lower middle management back office paper pushers for the big firms, in other words lapdogs for the VP's Ivy League grads of Wall Streets. Pace wants to erect that building because of its penis envy. — QU on Neighbors fight demolition of historic building on Beekman

  • The local parking garages are also pretty full again. The attendant at the garage on Reade Street told me that most of the people coming in are new (rather than pre-COVID customers) because they're all driving rather than taking public transportation. Every weekday morning there's a stream of cars going in between 8 - 8:30 am and getting backed up on Reade in a way that never used to happen pre-COVID. This morning there was also a back-up of cars through the Warren / West intersection waiting to get into the garage across from Soul Cycle. — N on Seen & Heard: Local events for climate week

  • I am sorry to hear this! I worked in the neighborhood for years, and remember how happy I was when the West Broadway location opened. I often got lunch there & picked up items on my way home from work. Unfortunately my building on the corner of Murray & West Sts was closed for renovations even before the pandemic started, which definitely contributed to their loss of customers. I wish them luck and thank you for printing their story. — Ann on Amish Market will close permanently this month

  • Further, West Broadway is closed from Canal to Lispenard. the East side of 6th Avenue, street and sidewalk, is closed from Canal to Lispenard. The entirety of Ericsson Place is closed from Varick to Hudson with lanes on Hudson narrowed. Why can the NYPD just do this? — Heide Fasnacht on Another occupation going on at City Hall Park

  • You got this exactly right, Pam. Thanks for keeping on the case. — Komanoff on Another occupation going on at City Hall Park

  • Thank you Amish Market for the countless flowers, breakfasts and lunches. We hope you return soon. — Chris Kasabach on Amish Market will close permanently this month

  • what a bummer for da claudio, open 7 days just in time for the temps dropping. its absurd they were put through the ringer all summer long when they could have gotten some well needed funds. local businesses need more support than ever and they got stuck in red tape.. — deblasiGO AWAY on Recent openings around the neighborhood

  • I hope Ray calls me too when Ecco relocates! What a loss...our favorite family restaurant for decades. We had our rehearsal dinner there, it's the place our parents first met each other, we brought all our kids there in infant seats, have eaten there probably over 100 times. So sad to see it leave and really hope Ray & team relocate soon. — Matt Blumberg on Ecco! at the end of its era in Tribeca?

  • O-D studio Is open as well and is only one on one personal training( Oscar personally cleans the gym after each client) Great to have the gym back in operation and Celebrating 17 years in tribeca — Agnes ponarska on Recent openings around the neighborhood

  • They have my family's gratitude for staying open throughout the shutdown and actually having things IN STOCK. — Max on Amish Market will close permanently this month

  • The elephant in the room: Century 21 has nothing you can't get online. It is (soon to be "was") a relic of a bygone age. The future of that space could be a multilevel mall with a food court, farmer's market, a multiplex movie theater, and luxury housing above it. Add a skyway between it and the hotel. — Century 20 Done on Century 21 will close all stores; declares bankruptcy

  • That's a sad local manifestation of a depressing fact ... that the people we literally pay to protect us don't really care about our lives. — malcolm on Another occupation going on at City Hall Park

  • Agreed- Chambers Street path is so narrow it is unsafe. Both sidewalks have barricade along the whole stretch between Broadway & Lafayette, so you can't cross the street for a block. And Elk Street is barricaded, so if you pick up a bike at City Hall, you can't cut over to Reade Street, a cross street that has a bike path, forcing you to ride across Chambers for two blocks, or try to navigate intersection of Chambers & Lafayette to go north to hit Reade there- really dangerous with traffic exiting the Brooklyn Bridge! — Robert Ripps on Another occupation going on at City Hall Park

  • They opened in early June. — Tribeca Citizen on Parts of Reade and Duane will close to traffic

  • The Warren Street walkway has been closed since April, when the NYPD said that people hanging out at night were a problem, even though the park closes at midnight. It never reopened, inconveniencing everyone who needs to go to the Lex subway. In addition, they periodically close Chambers Street completely and keep the sidewalk narrowed so much that social distancing is impossible. — A. on Another occupation going on at City Hall Park

  • We want the park open but need to be mindful we don't want unwanted predator's camping out and defecating in our park and around the area. It was finally cleaned up and would like it to stay this way. Its sad but if it opens the cops will not be able to control it . — New York on Another occupation going on at City Hall Park

  • We happened to be in New Paltz in August and came upon Main Course Marketplace for lunch. The food was outstanding! Everyone in my group enjoyed it so much that we ended up coming back for lunch the following day. — Broadway Mamma on Field Trip: New Paltz

  • For what it's worth, the area with the fountain (at Park Place) is open. I walked through today around lunchtime. There were a few people sitting on the benches. — person on Another occupation going on at City Hall Park

  • I deliver items to the units above that building often. I'm an Uber driver sometimes and I pick up riders right form there as well. This comes as a surprise. I remember picking up a few items there for Phlatbed (on demand delivery app like Uber for large items - Facebook Marketplace sales, Craigslist, junk removals etc), and would never think they'll be closing. Shame to see such a well liked place close shop. — Jed on Amish Market will close permanently this month

  • It's been open for dinner and I think lunch weekends. — TribecaMom on Parts of Reade and Duane will close to traffic

  • sad. trying to shop local in tribeca to support businesses. they need us! — scared on Amish Market will close permanently this month

  • Enough already with the colleges and universities taking over the city and eliminating the beauty of our historic and well built buildings. Look what NYU did to the village. It’s now a college campus, completely void of the charm and character of the past. Looks like Pace is planning on doing the same. There is No respect for old, and timeless. Never mind how wasteful it is to tear down a solid building, with all the trash going to our landfills. Sustainability is obviously not their priority. Why can’t pace utilize the structure and work with the current building? It’s always just about money and on to the new. When will that selfish business model change? Our schools need to educate the students on the importance of sustainable practices and conscious capitalism. — Joanne on Neighbors fight demolition of historic building on Beekman

  • Hope they have a come back. Food and service were consistently Excellent ! They were a much needed and welcome addition to downtown’s food scene. — Joanne on The latest on Savida

  • Anyone know if/when Takahashi will reopen? — Lexi on Parts of Reade and Duane will close to traffic
