  • No. You cannot bring dogs into that area. There will soon be large signs posted in that area and in many prohibited parks around the city. I have also been told that the police have been told to start providing citations and fines for this and for dogs in restaurants. Apparently, many restaurants are now receiving B grades from the health department due to customer complaints about dogs and it has gotten the attention of some local pols who are pressuring police to crack down. — Pam on Nosy Neighbor: Are dogs allowed in Liberty Park?

  • I am pretty sure just for the season. But there is a holiday market coming up, but from what I understand the vendors will be slightly different with new ones added in. That is on Dec. 8 from 11 to 5 and is called “Deck the Stalls.” — Tribeca Citizen on Seen & Heard: Richard Serra in Chelsea

  • "The history of Trinity’s property begins with Anneke (or Annetje) Jans, who first came to the colony of New Netherland in 1630, settling in Fort Orange (today’s Albany). In 1634, she and her husband, Roelof, moved to Manhattan, and in 1636, they acquired a 62-acre parcel of land north of the newly constructed wall that marked the city’s northern border. "Roelof died in 1637, and the next year, Jans married the pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church, Everardus Bogardus. The Jans/Bogardus land came to be known as the Dominie’s Bowery, or Reverend’s Farm. After Bogardus died in a shipwreck in 1647, Jans moved back to the Albany area, where she died in 1663, just prior to the English takeover of New Netherland. In accordance with her will, Jans’s surviving children were to sell the farm and split the proceeds, which they did in 1671, selling it to Gov. Francis Lovelace. Over the next 25 years, the land was merged with another tract—the combination was dubbed the King’s Farm—and this 215-acre parcel became crown land. It stretched all the way up to Greenwich Village, probably ending around today’s Christopher Street. "In 1697, Gov. Benjamin Fletcher, who had taken the step of establishing the Church of England as New York’s official religion, leased the King’s Farm to Trinity Church, the brand-new parish at the corner of Wall Street and Broadway that stood adjacent to the farm’s southern border. "Eight years later, Queen Anne granted the entire parcel—which had become the Queen’s Farm—to Trinity outright. It soon came to be known as the Church Farm, but many reverted back to calling it by the King’s Farm name. The queen’s grant made the church the second-largest landholder in New York (after the crown itself) and set the stage for the church to become the wealthiest in the North American colonies. [...] "Trinity, meanwhile, has weathered its real estate storms and come out ahead. The 215-acre King’s Farm has been reduced through donations and sales to a mere 14 acres, so while Trinity can no longer claim to be the second-largest landholder in the city, the church remains the 14th wealthiest private landowner in New York. A 2013 lawsuit revealed that wealth to be at about $2 billion, a figure that only stands to increase as Hudson Square is developed further" https://ny.curbed.com/2018/8/22/17764064/trinity-church-real-estate-history-hudson-square — James on First renderings for Disney’s HQ at former City Winery block

  • Yes, was just meant to be 'in effect' sold, but now corrected. — Tribeca Citizen on First renderings for Disney’s HQ at former City Winery block

  • The Trinity church did NOT sell. It is a 99-year lease. The King of England gave them the land and they are not allowed to sell, I believe. But I am pretty sure this is a lease. — steve on First renderings for Disney’s HQ at former City Winery block

  • What is wrong with our justice system that Adam Lublin continues to get out on bail? He is clearly a danger to the community, and yet The Post reports that, once again, he's been released on bail (twice as more victims came forward).
