  • from NYPost: "Modell’s renegotiating leases in attempt to avoid bankruptcy" "Eight shops on the current chopping block are in Manhattan and Brooklyn. These include 150 and 280 Broadway; the large Upper West Side store at 795 Columbus and the smaller one at 348 Amsterdam; in Harlem, on East 125th St.; and three in Brooklyn, at Fulton II, Brooklyn Junction and Eastern Parkway." https://nypost.com/2020/02/25/modells-renegotiating-leases-in-attempt-to-avoid-bankruptcy/ — James on Seen & Heard: Business grants for storefronts south of Murray

  • What a great way to engage their creative energy. An exciting adventure for all. Thanks for providing them with tools for them to make their ideas come to life. You have a gift for creating plays and a great ability to inspire them as well. Thank you — Katie Rohrman on Local playwright is teaching her craft to kids

  • This is fantastic...Thank you for posting it. It's like a different universe. — Marcus on A stroll through the city, and downtown, in 1911

  • Not exactly a retraction. Children of Tribeca, please don't use this as a model for how to correct your minor mistakes. — Tribeca Hater on Where in Tribeca?

  • My 7 year old has been going to ARC twice weekly for almost two months and I've seen great gains in his body awareness, endurance, and athletic form. Joel knows how to adapt instruction to meet my son at his level, but also makes work fun. My kiddo is very enthusiastic going to his sessions and has a growing appreciation for doing exercises slowly and with intention. He leaves sweaty, happy. We are very pleased with his progress so far! — Bpcmom on New Kid on the Block: Parisi Speed School at ARC Athletics

  • I will happily take advertising from 15 Park Row! But as far as I know they never have advertised in the Citizen. As for investigating, there are many open DOB elevator violations for the address, dating back to 2017, which I have looked at in the past. Those are open records and can be found here. — Tribeca Citizen on J&R’s music history will be preserved in (another!) new City Winery venue

  • Ecco was one of the best run restaurants at one time in the city. I recall going there with friends for New Years Eve one year and they ran out of desserts . Sure enough the bakery chef made us a fresh napoleon in record time! Food was delicious and service was even better. Who could forget the antipasta when you walked in? To die for.... — Barry Diamond on Ecco! at the end of its era in Tribeca?

  • Good grief.. people will whine about anything (everything). Keep up the great work Pam. — Jeff on Where in Tribeca?

  • Walked by on Warren St this past weekend, looks like Coder School is opening a location in Tribeca. https://www.thecoderschool.com/locations/tribeca/ — TribecaMom on New Kid on the Block: Parisi Speed School at ARC Athletics

  • I have a teammate who lives in that building and we both think a music venue in the 'hood would be awesome! BUT, she says that the building has serious problems like a lobby in constant construction and there are only 2 of 5 elevators working and that is when they are working. Apparently the elevators always going kaput. I told her that someone needs to investigate because it seems not safe. I understand TribecaCitizen cannot investigate because 15 Park Row is a potential revenue source, but that place that you call 'legendary' could be dangerous to its tenants. And yes I have been there and experienced it. — Kristophe on J&R’s music history will be preserved in (another!) new City Winery venue

  • Whatever. It's what I do now. 10a on Saturday. — Tribeca Citizen on Where in Tribeca?

  • Again, it's NOT the exact time and day as Erik did it. Alternative facts. — Tribeca Hater on Where in Tribeca?

  • It also used to be easier to get your typewriter, horseshoes, film cameras, and rotary telephones repaired. This is a 19th century technology and once it gets ripped up for utilities work or misguided restoration, it loses its original integrity. Per Historic Districts Council in 2017: "Still, well into the 20th century, Belgian blocks persisted as a pavement that defined the visual, material, and functional texture of the streetscape in many parts of New York City. In 1949, for example, Manhattan still had 140 miles of granite block streets. Today, citywide, perhaps 15 miles remain." — James on Nosy Neighbor: Just how many lanes are on Greenwich?

  • You may contact me for more information regarding this project. I am the original architect. — Vincenzo Polsinelli on The Latest on 172 Duane

  • I so agree - some of my fondest memories are the team aspects of theatrical creating I did as a child. The usefulness in expressing oneself and discovering new methods of self realization are as important as math and geography. — TG on Local playwright is teaching her craft to kids

  • A better question might be why is the cobblestone roadwork on Greenwich (and Harrison, etc.) that was redone fairly recently not holding up, and in worse shape than streets that have not been repaved since the 1930's (for example stretches of Vestry)? — Robert Ripps on Nosy Neighbor: Just how many lanes are on Greenwich?

  • Right you are, TriBeCa Lover. Plus this comment from Jane Freeman via email: The design looks like the Panopticon of Jeremy Bentham. But I'm sure it carries more benign symbolism. And this from my mother-in-law, a professor of medieval history: If those are indeed artichokes, they are an icon for wisdom. — Tribeca Citizen on Where in Tribeca?

  • Great news for the family who owns Slate! So excited to hear about these family run businesses sticking around! Like Raoul’s In SoHo - opened almost 45 years ago and still kicking! — ECR on Seen & Heard: Rolling out green on Pier 40

  • This is 10 Murray Street. A type of Art Deco ? Tribeca Lover — TriBeCa Lover on Where in Tribeca?

  • Now the NYPL announced it would be opened in Spring if 2020. No specific date was given. Let's see if they would make this date. — Tye on Nosy Neighbor: What’s happening to the Murray Street library?

  • Love what my daughter is doing with this age group. Kids today don't have as much opportunity to create their own stories and actually act them out in front of a live audience due to all the electronics they are now exposed to that thinks for them. I know they are having a meaningful experience they will never forget that will carry over into their adult lives in very positive ways. ox — Laura's Mom on Local playwright is teaching her craft to kids

  • In fairness to TC, the Rector Street bridge is not in Tribeca and the BPCA has nothing to do with Tribeca. — PeterD on Nosy Neighbor: What will replace the footings of the Rector Street Bridge?
