  • Is Nonna Betta related to the one in Roman ghetto? If so, very different menu. I was hoping for carciofi alla giudia, per esempio. — Hudson River on Tribeca’s New Restaurants: A Recap

  • Erik, thank you, I happened upon your post after writing this and felt duly foolish. Thank you for the info. Is there are web site that tracks all the shoots in the city, and decodes their secret names? — Marcus on Seen & Heard: Eight Shoots in Tribeca This Week

  • Counterfeiting is against the law. US Code Title 18 part 1 Chapter 113 §2320. Trafficking in counterfeit goods or services https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/USCODE-2011-title18/pdf/USCODE-2011-title18-partI-chap113-sec2320.pdf — Marcus on Seen & Heard: The 1st Precinct Steps Up

  • I'd like to clarify what Chris was trying to say: These people are NOT actually breaking the law – counterfeiting (some people don’t realize it’s NOT a crime) and NOT a parasite to the community … residents and businesses … just so some tourists from Ohio can show their friends their NOT fake bag. NYPD should NOT enforce it so Trump doesn’t NOT get any grand ideas and NOT send ICE there. — Jim Smithers on Seen & Heard: The 1st Precinct Steps Up

  • TMAS = the TV show “Tell Me a Story” — James on Seen & Heard: Eight Shoots in Tribeca This Week

  • The film shoots are out of control this summer. I've put in a complaint to the mayor's office, and I encourage others to do the same. https://www1.nyc.gov/site/mome/about/contact-us.page — DeeDee on Seen & Heard: Eight Shoots in Tribeca This Week

  • I wrote about "TMAS" yesterday: https://tribecacitizen.com/2018/07/17/seen-heard-new-childrens-theater/ — Erik Torkells on Seen & Heard: Eight Shoots in Tribeca This Week

  • Is there an easy way to find out what the shoots are actually for? For example, what is "TMAS"? — Marcus on Seen & Heard: Eight Shoots in Tribeca This Week

  • From DSNY Strongest (212)431-1955 From the DSNY DISTRICT CONTACT LIST Ask for the District Superintendent. If he/she is not available, ask to speak to a Supervisor. 212‐732‐5014 From the Green Book: Manhattan Borough Chief - Garret O’Rielly Addresses 427 E. 87th St., New York NY, 10028 Contact Numbers (212) 360-3520 — James on Seen & Heard: Eight Shoots in Tribeca This Week

  • That DSNY vehicle probably belongs to a supervisor associated with the Sanitation District 1 Office located in the building at 7 N. Moore Street (owned by NYC and assigned to DSNY). Good luck with your complaint! — James on Seen & Heard: Eight Shoots in Tribeca This Week

  • Below that on Streeteasy it says the owner is 273 Church St Associates, who was listed as being the owner (c/o Benjamin Weinstock) on a mortgage agreement as far back as 1984. Maybe they sold this entity that owns the property instead of the property itself, but that's not clear. — James on Seen & Heard: New Children’s Theater

  • I saw that, but the StreetEasy page also mentions a "previous sale" for $11.9M. See https://tribecacitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/273-Church-StreetEasy.png. — Erik Torkells on Seen & Heard: New Children’s Theater

  • Not sold. Streeteasy says the status of 273 was "03/10/2018 Off market temporarily” — James on Seen & Heard: New Children’s Theater

  • They've said they'd love to make something happen. — Erik Torkells on A New Italian Restaurant in Hudson Square

  • Has Hudson Square Connection BID considered something like a community garden or park in that space? — KP on A New Italian Restaurant in Hudson Square

  • Very romantic & magical for the tenants that live in Building right across and were told by the leasing manager that they are NOT required to disclose the presence of heliport! Heavy & ongoing sinus infections from the (up to 4 at a time) helicopters that land take off 5 days a week from 8 AM - 8 PM. Headaches, eczema, nausea & Sinus infections are only a few of the "romantic & magical" side effects, caused by the constant noise, kerosene fumes and settling ( thick black) pollution dust the 100's a day helicopters. Does anybody know if it is really legal for the leasing Mgr/LL to withhold that information from a tenant before they sign the lease? Breaking the lease will cost me 2 month worth of "buy out fee". — East River at East 34th on The Helicopter Problem

  • I walked by Nonna Beppa yesterday afternoon and noticed that the tables were set. What caught my eye first was the huge brand new meat slicer box on top of the trash heaped on the curb! I didn’t realize that a new place was going in that space - good luck to them! — Uptown Downtown on Tribeca’s New Restaurants: A Recap

  • Any word on the Poké place that is supposed to be opening next to Dig Inn? — KP on Tribeca’s New Restaurants: A Recap

  • This is absurd. There is no excuse as to why its taking so long to complete the retail portion of 3 WTC or the fact that they couldn't even be bothered to finish the Church Street sidewalk and remainder of Cortland Way for the grand opening. This would have been great. Pathetic. — Anthony on The Dearth of Dining at the World Trade Center

  • Also another shoot this week: There are signs for shooting something called "TMAS" on Walker Street. — Marcus on Seen & Heard: Il Mulino Opens Tonight

  • Their goods are delivered by vans which park on Lispenard. I once saw a driver make a too small space bigger by alternately bashing into the cars parked in front and behind. Since the one behind belonged to me I asked the driver to knock it off and go someplace else. He ignored me. When two NYPD cops happened to stroll by at that moment I asked them to intervene. They told me to call 311. I did and got no response. The community has done nothing about these street vendors for years. I figured that that was because New Yorkers are afraid to complain about the anti-social behavior of some black Muslims for fear of being called racist. The Mayor says that's why he eliminated "broken windows" policing. Is there any other explanation for their ongoing presence? — lowrider on Seen & Heard: The 1st Precinct Steps Up

  • "That is a bit off – they are poor immigrants trying to make a living." So are the drug dealers hawking their wares nightly on our street. So should we just let them be? — Marcus on Seen & Heard: Zutto’s Reopening Date
