  • These town-profiles are a great ideal - and well-timed! — Michael on Field Trip: New Paltz

  • For what it's worth, I am visiting at least 2 restaurants or food establishments twice a week to support our local business and restaurants. Would love if every Tribecian can do as such or more. Not just the local hot spots but other establishments that are struggling. I pass by every so often and take account of the places that have a lot of clientele while others may have just 1-2 patrons. Let's support, ALL if possible. It's so depressing to see empty store fronts, and so many homeless people, and not just down and out on your luck, but now it's drug addicts (the heroin users) standing in their comatose state on Duane street. Also the homeless people sleeping right next to 1803. Can 1803 do something about them sleeping so close to patrons. What is the city doing to help those homeless people? — Sandra on Parts of Reade and Duane will close to traffic

  • So excited Chef John Daley is back! He’s a true genius and I missed his restaurant Sushi Ko — Kate on Recent Openings around the neighborhood (or a bit beyond)

  • I believe it is on Franklin, at the freight elevator of the Powell Building, 105 Hudson Street. — Robert Ripps on Where in Tribeca?

  • You definitely are not a New Yorker. Why don’t you leave? — Karen on Seen & Heard: Lines out the door…

  • Sorry I am an European. In Europe have the 2 ww and the "rebuild time" in the 50tes and 60ties have some old building's demolition. The next demolition are behind the 2010~Years. Make not the selv mistake. Some old Buildings are demolished. The buildings are not "historik Landmark,.." but this buildings was old and give a city are a face and atmosphere. The petrol station, ore the old supermarket. Who generation of kiddys Friday night with her Friends... When you see pijtures from old Buildings, You can say is it in Russia, France, Spain, Dutch,.. but the modern building's? You can not say is it Vancouver, London, St Petersburg, Barcelona, the modern buildings are a soup of concrete. No individual style LG Christian — Christian Platzbecker on Neighbors fight demolition of historic building on Beekman

  • Better than even money Vale is correct! But one never knows. Antifa was never an "organization" but is a movement, albeit one seemingly with no formal structure. — Ben on Seen & Heard: Lines out the door…

  • That's because they are closing... — Tribeca Citizen on What neighborhood schools will look like this fall

  • your two cents is worth 2 million cents, at least! — madeline c lanciani on Seen & Heard: Lines out the door…

  • Do y'all really think Juanita exists? I'd bet my money that's he/ she's a Tribeca Citizen troll and takes on a different name with each post. Don't engage, ignore. Just my 2cents worth. — Vale on Seen & Heard: Lines out the door…

  • Between Stuy and BMCC closing, that's going to deal another blow to the already struggling delis/restaurants/pizzerias and local food trucks that relied not only on the working population but also on the student population at lunch time. The economic hit will force even more closures. And this is really only the beginning. As a community we need to encourage each other to shop locally (and not only at target and whole foods). Don't rely so much on Fresh Direct and go to the deli's. Go to the smaller markets. I saw Amish Market had a sign out yesterday that food items and groceries were 50% off. That's insane! — Vale on What neighborhood schools will look like this fall

  • Good point! Also: Sadly, the way things are going, many universities will not survive this pandemic, or at the very least will have to downsize in various ways, including laying off teachers and staff, and possibly selling off buildings and facilities. The longer remote learning goes on, the more likely such scenarios become, as universities run out of money, while students either postpone attending university at all until things return to "normal", or, if attending, demand reduced tuition and fees for the reduced "college experience". — Marcus on Neighbors fight demolition of historic building on Beekman

  • No one belongs to Antifa. It is an imaginary organization made up by the President. But I'm thinking the majority of Americans would want to join an Anti-Fascist organization if it existed. BLM is a meme suggesting that Black Lives Matter. The meme exists because too many don't think the lives of black people matter. 25 million people have been on the streets protesting on behalf of people of color who have been abused by the police. Estimates at the high end suggest that 10,000 people have looted or what can be noted as rioting. — Larry Loonin on Seen & Heard: Lines out the door…

  • We have to do all we can to advocate for restaurants and bars, here in Tribeca and city wide. Empty storefronts and low activity bring us back to the bad old days. Its not just about policing or trash pick ups, but keeping streets active. I also asked the Partnership for NYC to ask their members to bring people back to work. I see that they asked the City to do so first, which makes sense. That foot traffic is needed. — PATRICK Valentino on Parts of Reade and Duane will close to traffic

  • In San Francisco, where they clearly weren't aware of the staggering amount of hotel fraud that the City has, they allow you to book these $8,000 a month apartments the same way you would book a hotel room. Well, here's the thing: the minimum stay for any Sonder unit is 30 days, and San Francisco tenancy laws automatically make any person living in a place a tenant after 24 days, regardless of how the unit was originally paid for. And Sonder has a thing called seamless booking where you just plug in credit card number, expiry, cvv and billing zip, AND THEY ONLY DO A SOFT PREAUTH!! The card doesn't get hard charged until after you've checked out!! And in the rare instance that the card holder didn't recognize the pre-authorization on his statement, it's most likely been well over 24 days by the time Sonder gets wind of it. So for the fraudster tenants it's no longer a criminal matter, it's a civil one, and they have to evict you!! Who the hell runs the security department at that place?? Hilarious!! — SFnative on First Sonder, then an armed robbery at 20 Broad

  • NYC is never over...we have always bounced back. We will again...stronger and different from before. Maybe outdoor dining becomes more of a way of life. Less office towers and more affordable housing...change is jot always bad.. You clearly would've said the same for the US with Roosevelt's New Deal. We just need a new Mayor who can make a plan and a President who is awake to what's happening across the nation. — Tm on Seen & Heard: Lines out the door…

  • NYC is not over. I recall all the content from 9-11, from Sandy, and from as far back as the 70s. I never get why people say that. Talent always aggregates. You can't just replicate the Met, Broadway nor the talent that follows in many industries in other places. Other cities dont have the infrastructure. I hope you were being tongue and cheek. Where are the riots? I walk many streets of NYC. Havent seen riots..... — Patrick on Seen & Heard: Lines out the door…

  • Remember when they let J&R destroy a beautiful building to erect a big box store? Now we don't have either. Buildings often outlast their occupants. I hope this does not happen! — Heide Fasnacht on Neighbors fight demolition of historic building on Beekman

  • More power to them and I hope they can save the building. — Marcus on Neighbors fight demolition of historic building on Beekman

  • Sorry to see them go. Their short order breakfast was the best. Here's a Cardi B interview and photoshoot at Amish: https://www.thefader.com/2016/02/29/cardi-b-interview — Marsha on Amish Market will close permanently this month

  • They also deserve eternal thanks for allowing anyone in the neighborhood to charge devices on their generator, on the sidewalk, during the Sandy power outage. Same generator that kept them partially open - with calculators to tabulate purchases. — jfrankp on Amish Market will close permanently this month
