In the News: Inside the Tribeca Home of a “QVC Star”
••• “QVC star” Lori Goldstein talked to Isaac Mizrahi about her apartment. I don’t think it’s an advertorial for 30 Park Place, but it sure reads that way. —Elle Decor
••• And Sight Unseen visited “the Curio-Filled Tribeca Loft of Table of Contents Founder Joe Magliaro”; TOC was a shop in Portland, Oregon, and the post is definitely semi-advertorial. P.S. I want glossy black herringbone floors!
••• “Exactly how hot and disgusting are the [subway] platforms lately? The Regional Plan Association aimed to answer that question this week by heading to the 10 busiest subway stations […] to see how the temperatures underground compared to those outside. […] The hottest spot to wait for a train was the 4/5/6 platform at the Union Square stop; at 1 p.m. yesterday, it registered at a whopping 104 degrees, compared to 86 degrees outside. A few other stations, including the 1 platform at 59th Street-Columbus Circle, and the 4/5/6 at Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall, also cracked 100 degrees. Many more registered temperatures in the high 90s.” —Curbed
••• An article about how the word “organic” isn’t all that meaningful, especially in regard to restaurants, takes Bareburger to task for not being 100% organic. But the chain is still trying harder than a lot of other ones, so if you really care about “organic” you’re probably better off there that at its competition. And if your health is important to you, you should stay away from fast food in general. —New York Times
••• “De Maria is dead. The chic Kenmare Street cafe closed down last week after little more than two years in business.” —Bowery Boogie
