  • I live further south on Warren Street. I wonder why Dan was "advised not to walk south anymore"? Can you add more info? Thanks. PS A pleasant tone is always welcome, altho sometimes emotion gets the best of everyone at times like these. — Ben on The city releases positive COVID-19 cases by zip code

  • Thanks for sharing this great story about the owners of Da Claudio - they are role models of resilience and compassion. I look to them for inspiration as we try to keep our small bakery operating until the relief package comes through. I'm ready to order a staff lunch delivery right now - thankful for my staff and for their delicious food. — Monica on Local Business Update: Da Claudio

  • Agree with Val! let's mellow out and not be such know it alls. Most of us are fortunate to be downtown and whether battery park or Tribeca or FIDI or something in-between (e.g. 10282 is officially Tribeca but many call it battery park nonetheless) - - population is low, a lot of people aren't even in town and i think that the vast majority of folks in these parts "distanced" on early, wear gloves and oftentimes masks too and are supportive of the neighborhood. i know my husband thinks he is singlehandedly supporting the bodegas! — celeste lee on The city releases positive COVID-19 cases by zip code

  • See this post on what the Taste of Tribeca is doing. — Tribeca Citizen on Local Business Update: Da Claudio

  • A pizzeria in Long Island City is doing the following: Show our local CoVID-19 heroes your love and appreciation by donating a pie for them. For every pie that is donated we will match it and send to a local hospital the next day. To place your donation simply click on the link below. Just a suggestion, perhaps Da Claudio could offer something like this for our local hospital. It would not only keep your employees busy, but would allow local folks to feel like we are helping in a small way. Either way, good luck and we look forward to seeing you again soon. — Broadway Mamma on Local Business Update: Da Claudio

  • Interlude closed a while ago, though I only heard that through a friend. — Tribeca Citizen on How to get your coffee fix in the neighborhood

  • Good Bye Andy we will miss you. It was always a pleasure to see you and talk about the neighborhood. Thank you for the wonderful olive oil you gave us. Not to mention all the good breakfasts. We love you, please rest in peace. Your neighbors Rochelle and Michael Condolences to Andy's family. — Michael & Rochelle Langenstein on Andy Koutsoudakis Sr., owner of Tribeca’s Kitchen, dies from the coronavirus

  • What about Interlude? Are they still open? I feel like North Tribeca has been largely ignored by TC lately... — Scott on How to get your coffee fix in the neighborhood

  • I have lived and worked in 10013 for 40 years on Reade Street which I guess is southern tribeca. We need to be neighborly and try to get over this thing no matter how long it takes. I have been advised not to walk south anymore so i guess it stay at home at present. Be kind and strong and just take every precaution you can. Peace and stay safe. Dan Alterman Reade street — Dan Alterman on The city releases positive COVID-19 cases by zip code

  • Good comment Val. IF you feel that something is wrong it isn't necessary to be snarky and talk about 'false news'. We have enough people doing that already. — Bob on The city releases positive COVID-19 cases by zip code

  • I know we are all on edge, but you don't have to be so aggressive in your tone, especially when, as MattieNYC pointed out, what you said isn't really accurate either. I get it we are all stressed, but now is not a time to be smug, it's a time where we need to be good to each other and help each other out. As humans most of us are better than this, and better than one-upping each other. Communicate in a kind manner. That's all. Thank you. — Val on The city releases positive COVID-19 cases by zip code

  • I went to TJ's Spring St. Wednesday late morning and there was a social-distanced line out to and around the corner of 6th Ave -- but if you are, as I am, over 50 you can just go right in. Once inside the shelves were full and there were virtually no people and no line at the check out. A good experience and a healthy walk. — George Bacon on Trader Joe’s on Spring is back open with senior hours

  • Good catch, Frank. But to be fair, your description of 10013 is also inaccurate. 10013 is not just "Northern TriBeca & Hudson Square" as you state. Do a search for 10013 zip in Google maps to see the full outline. It captures a much wider breadth of "neighborhoods," including South Tribeca, a sliver of Chinatown and the Civic Center. The 10013 zip code includes far more tall residential buildings and a larger population than solely the "North Tribeca and Hudson Square" neighborhoods. You would not come close to achieving a population of 27,700 in 10013 counting only North Tribeca & Hudson Square. — MattieNYC on The city releases positive COVID-19 cases by zip code

  • One possible explanation for the concentration of cases in certain neighborhoods: Why Queens May Have Emerged as New York City's Coronavirus Epicenter "Experts say the borough’s demographics might play a role in why the virus has spread so quickly through Queens.

  • The loan is great if your staff can work from home. It is great that we will be able to pay our employees for the 8 weeks. Some of the funds will cover rents and utilities. The problem is if I need people to physically be at a place of business to get production up and running. It will get us to June but we will not have any money coming in for the work that can not be done. This work will start in June but how do we pay our employees at that point if you do not have the funds from the jobs that could not be accomplished in the last 10 weeks? The CARES act is a one time loan as of now and you can not apply for a second 8 weeks. they have already extended unemployment for an extra 13 weeks they should do the same for all of the small business. — Zesty on Local Business Update: Da Claudio

  • I've noticed several stores in Brookfield Place, Burberry, Hermes, have removed all their inventory. — Terry Lautin on In the News: Riding “Charging Bull” — naked

  • The chart is correct. 10282 has 21 cases. You can check the city's data here yourself. The highest rate per capita in the neighborhood is 10004. — Tribeca Citizen on The city releases positive COVID-19 cases by zip code

  • Please correct and stop spreading false news when a grid is published below your text. Battery Park North is 10282 - 17 positive cases 10038 is FiDi/Seaport - 76 positive cases 10013 is northern TriBeCa and Hudson Square (not Battery Park) - 122 positive cases. Be safe — Frank on The city releases positive COVID-19 cases by zip code

  • Thank you for the coverage and thank you to everyone who has so generously donated to our campaign. Our first delivery is tomorrow, with Khe-Yo going to NYU Langone. Then we have Marc Forgione going to Mt. Sinai Beth Israel, Zuckers to Bellevue, and Paisley, City Vineyard and Anejo to Lower Manhattan Hospital. Because of the support we have received, we are in a position to line up many more dates for next week and beyond! — Taste of Tribeca on Taste of Tribeca is now serving local restaurants — and local medical teams

  • This is a great idea. Thank you Taste of Tribeca for your leadership on this. — Demetri on Taste of Tribeca is now serving local restaurants — and local medical teams

  • Did you even read the post, you self-righteous moron? Four of the five spots she mentioned are small businesses. She was simply pointing out that Starbucks is closed and noted where there are open locations. It must be exhausting being so sanctimonious. Maybe you should consider a permanent quarantine? — LR on How to get your coffee fix in the neighborhood

  • I am typically pretty cynical but think the stimulus package is aimed at businesses like this. For smaller businesses, they will give you a loan equal to two and a half times payroll that will be forgiven if you use it only for payroll. I am not an expert but urge them to look into it and hope they can stick it out. Great restaurant and great people. — elizabeth on Local Business Update: Da Claudio
