    None taken - you have a valid point. It's a monster of a building and doesn't allow for organic and smooth inflow of newcomers into the area. There's just not a ton of offerings in that area today, and the building offers an attractive tax abatement which is almost impossible to find in Manhattan nowadays.

    I don't know if this is better suited to this thread or "small questions", but—where do people go for alterations and the like? I just moved to brooklyn from berkeley where I took everything to advanced european tailoring; hoping to find a similarly reliable & open-minded place here.

    IF
    DSM

    Will be staying at The Roxy in Tribeca so restaurant recommendations around the area would be appreciated. Traveling with my son who will be 20 months old so no degustations but otherwise open to suggestions!
    Hey guys, it's been a while! I'm in exotic NJ for work but am taking a late flight out on Thursday so I can spend a few hours in NYC. Anything else opened in the past year or two? I know sadly BBSNY is no more, maybe Barneys is worth a visit during the close out sale?

    Barneys is not worth a visit, unless you are going to Central Park anyway. I'd say you can take a peak at Totokaelo, since you are probably going to Rick and IF anyway. There is always Atelier!

    We now have Sugarfish, and despite the SoHo crowd the sushi is fab; definitely the best value for sushi ever.

    Sounds good E, I'll be on my lonesome so might try it if I pass by at a time that isn't crazy busy.

    Checked out the usual suspects, only piece of particular interest in my size were the Guidi front zip sneakers. Ended up eating at Kopitiam (some serious nostalgia for my mum's cooking there) and EAK (not the best bowl of ramen I've had in NYC but solid).
