The Day | South Brooklyn Pizza Goes to Court

Look OutScott Lynch

Good morning, East Village.

The New York Post says Mayor Bloomberg is in favor of having the Parks Department oversee privately owned public spaces such as Zuccotti Park.

South Brooklyn Pizza’s plans to expand to a next-door space have resulted in a court battle. Kati Duncan, who says she sublet her space to the pizza parlor, tells Jeremiah’s Vanishing NY that its owner acquired a next-door store and then tore down the dividing wall without her knowledge.

EV Grieve has photos of the space where 316 East Third Street, a 19th-century townhouse, used to be. A 33-unit apartment building of Karl Fischer design is planned for the lot, though the DOB disapproved the plans earlier this month.

More than 60 fashion designers will come together at the Bowery Terrace at the Bowery Hotel on March 31 and April 1. The sample sale of new spring fashions is part of a Japan relief benefit, according to Washington Square News.

WSN also notes that NYU professor Deborah Sarnoff has conducted a successful study on melting facial fat with a laser. This cosmetic procedure is for “those who want to look more like a swan,” without going under the knife.

Mickey Boardman of Paper visits Acme and deems it “a fun place to go with a special someone or a bunch of your work friends after a day in the office, as we did last night. It’s chic but not stuffy and the food is delish but not daunting. Pass the house-cured salmon!”
