Things to Keep on the Radar

Next Monday, March 4, the Board of Estimate and Apportionment (BEA), made up of Rick Rector (mayor), Heather Campbell (City treasurer), and Tom DePietro (Common Council president), will be opening the sealed bids received for 427 Warren Street, the former police station.

The bids will be opened and reviewed at 3:00 p.m. at City Hall. The invitation to bid can be reviewed here.

Next Tuesday, March 5, Rolling Grocer 19 opens its bricks-and-mortar store at 6 South Second Street.


The store opens for the first time at 2:00 p.m. next Tuesday and will remain open until 7:00 p.m. Its regular hours going forward will be 2:00 to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 11:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. The store will be closed on Sunday and Monday.


  1. Will the pocket park next door to 417 remain separate from the building? I believe there are deeds for both. Like to see it remain a public park.

    1. That's a good question. I was assuming they were selling the building and the pathetic little paved "pocket park" next to it, but the bid package indicates just one tax parcel is being sold: 109.52-3-35. The vacant space, the address of which is 425 Warren Street, is indeed a separate parcel: 109.52-3-36.

    2. I've trimmed most of the dead wood off those two handsome locust trees. Got tired of looking at that sadness. Amazing that they find any nourishment at all in that sea of asphalt.

  2. Let's be glad this information is now public record. Better as a public park than outdoor dining. Buyer beware this is not included. Curious if the Conservation Advisory Council has an any inventory of this greenspace.
