memory lane: pioneer days in Tribeca, revisited


One Year Ago Today on Manhattan Loft Guy

You were warned in my July 4 post that you’ve got a couple of weeks of archived Manhattan Loft Guy material coming up. In my July 6, 2012, watching Tribeca grow up: another loft neighborhood pioneer profiled, I picked up on a profile of a pediatrician who moved to Tribeca in 1983 and who opened her office there to treat kids in 1988. I love the firsthand we-were-there-back-in-the-day focus from someone who really saw Tribeca (and its progeny) grow up. But I also appreciate any excuse to revisit my all-time favorite quote about Tribeca history: “You’ve never seen so many people under three feet high…”. (Not a spoiler, a tease.)
