Yesterday, we had an excellent walkthrough of Lincoln Square with the former Chief of the Department for the NYPD, Terence Monahan, who is now the City’s new Senior Advisor for Recovery, Public Safety and Planning, and key property owners, including our Chairman Gary Jacob of Glenwood, Maura Hayes from The Walt Disney Company, Frank Simio from Fordham University, and representatives from Milstein Properties, Ogden CAP Properties, and others. We’re pleased that our site visit was followed by a calm evening in Lincoln Square, the City and throughout the country.

Things are looking brighter and we are happy to report two more openings: The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, NY and Sapphire Cuisines of India. And, J’s Cleaners, which will open on Amsterdam Avenue soon, is offering pickup and delivery. Check out our Neighborhood Guide to find everything that is open in Lincoln Square.
