  • You'd think they'd forgive it -- snitching is how crimes are solved. — j frank parnell on Why aren’t officers wearing masks?

  • Maybe they are purposely trying to get it and go on disability and collect their $ and not have to deal with being shat on every hour of every day ? — Jim Carrey as the mask on Why aren’t officers wearing masks?

  • Snitch — Johnny Rios on Why aren’t officers wearing masks?

  • Whenever I see 10 or more police officers together without masks, I call 311 & let them know the exact location of the group not in compliance with mask & gathering orders. — j frank p on Why aren’t officers wearing masks?

  • At 5:30 this afternoon, NY'ers are rallying at Broadway and Warren Street to demand that Mayor de Blasio order NYPD to re-open foot and bicycle traffic at/around City Hall and every precinct house in the city. I'll be there. I hope to see many of my neighbors, including the good folks who have voiced their dissatisfaction with NYPD's takeover of our public space and routes. — Charles Komanoff on Time to liberate the neighborhood’s sidewalks

  • Does anyone know the right government contact to reach about the City Hall Park closure? It’s utterly ridiculous that a giant barricade has been blocking the park and sidewalks for weeks without any apparent end in sight. The protests have largely died down and the occupiers from last month have all moved elsewhere. There is no excuse for this space to be taken from the residents without any consideration for the value it brings to the families here. — Jason on Time to liberate the neighborhood’s sidewalks

  • I’m so tired of City Hall Park being closed. And why do they need 20 police standing around in there at all times? One officer was smoking a cigar. It’s beyond ridiculous. — Kristin on Time to liberate the neighborhood’s sidewalks

  • I live on Broadway & Warren. I just had surgery, so having to walk all the way around City Hall Park in order to get to the Lexington Avenue subway is beyond my capabilities. I keep hoping that they will open Chambers Street, at least to pedestrians, and they show no inclination to do this. This is completely outrageous. I don’t know what’s going on with the other side of City Hall Park, by the Lexington Avenue subway station. I certainly hope that they have opened that, because it has the only elevator to that station. If you were old or disabled, without the elevator, you’re simply out of luck. That means to me. Open Chambers, open the pathway through the park, open the park! NOTHING is happening re: protests!!!! — A. on Time to liberate the neighborhood’s sidewalks

  • This is great! Last thing local restaurants need right now is to pay excessive service fees to delivery apps. By the way, will there be an agregation of restaurants through an app? or does one have to go to the specific restaurants website to order? — JCMNYC on Locanda Verde is going whole hog on curbside dining

  • It's a good thing they prevented us from using these spaces in case somebody prevented us from using these spa-- wait — j frank p on Time to liberate the neighborhood’s sidewalks

  • The Downtown Alliance has partnered with BentoBox to launch the Restaurant Online Ordering Sponsorship Program — part of a continuing effort to support businesses that are being adversely impacted by the effects of COVID-19. https://www.downtownny.com/restaurant-online-ordering-sponsorship-program — TribecaMom on Locanda Verde is going whole hog on curbside dining

  • While I agree the sidewalks should be open to foot traffic, many residents would be very happy seeing street closures to "non-resident" car traffic. I've heard clamoring to see the Beach Street exits (the Holland Tunnel round-about exits that book-end Ericsson Place street) be permanently closed! How do you argue with reducing downtown vehicular traffic, especially cross-borough. — MattieNYC on Time to liberate the neighborhood’s sidewalks

  • I just wish some of these Citibike stands could be moved to allow some of these restaurants the ability to take advantage of as much space as possible. Particularly the ones on Duane and Harrison- if they were moved just a block away to Greenwich (where there are so many empty storefronts) these places would be able to accommodate 2x3x the number of customers. That’s income for the restaurants and servers that could really make a difference. — JulieW on Locanda Verde is going whole hog on curbside dining

  • Soon as you are ready to ship, put me on your list! It’s a great day to be a “Seawolf!” — Harold Bost on Made in Tribeca: Island Ice NYC

  • Agreed.... It makes the streets feel more like a living part of the city. Putting the tables and chairs in the street on the sidewalk also frees up the sidewalk space more. Some of the initial attempts were just quickly thrown together out of necessity, but now that restaurant owners are realizing this could be for the long haul, and even for a time when/if COVID is ever over that it might remain a seasonal mode of dining, there is more effort to make it an aesthetic experience as well. I do hope this becomes an established way to use outdoor space going forward, at least seasonally. I'm sure some will find ways to even continue through the cold months, using outdoor warmers. — Marcus on Locanda Verde is going whole hog on curbside dining

  • Fantastic. Love how creative all of these restaurants are getting and an infinitely better use of street space than car parking. — person on Locanda Verde is going whole hog on curbside dining

  • It takes years and years to understand the bagel, but you can perfect it in a matter of weeks? Is Ron charging pandemic prices? — Bagel Bubula on Bubby’s isn’t just for pies anymore

  • It takes years and years to understand the bagel. Ron perfected the bagel in a matter of weeks. It is the best bagel in Tribeca, maybe in Manhattan. I'm not kidding. — Bruce Ehrmann on Bubby’s isn’t just for pies anymore

  • Warren Streets, Washington Square Park and Penny Park are full of rats. You can even spot them during daytime. — Sofia on Bring on the Cats: Rodents of Unusual Size roaming the streets

  • AND! The address is also 140 Park Place. See updated post to prove that no one -- least of all me -- should challenge Sonia Stock on matters regarding Tribeca addresses. — Tribeca Citizen on Where in Tribeca?

  • A terrible loss not only for the neighborhood, but for this visionary restaurateur and his wonderful staff. I hope his other locations fare better. Sad times for all indeed. — Franklin Foodie on Augustine will close permanently due to the pandemic

  • NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! We spent many a special occasion at Augustine...anniversaries, Christmas eve, date night. Such a beautiful restaurant, wonderful staff, and delicious food. — CocoNYC8 on Augustine will close permanently due to the pandemic

  • We did take out brunch from Bubby's this past weekend and it was delish. I still remember Bubby's generously gave out food to the neighborhood during Sandy in 2012, — TribecaMom on Bubby’s isn’t just for pies anymore

  • This is such sad news! Augustine was our go-to in the neighborhood. We loved popping by for a quick drink, lingering a bit too long at the table in the window on a lazy Sunday and most of all, we will miss the welcoming and attentive staff that took such great care of us. We wish everyone the best in health and a speedy job search for a new opportunity. We will miss you! — Allison on Augustine will close permanently due to the pandemic
