    The Tribeca Grand: Now With More ButtOkay, this is an ad for the Tribeca Grand that a Mark over at Copyranter clipped out of City magazine. Our questions include the following: 1) Where is, exactly, the Tribeca Grand in this picture? 2) Are we to infer, from the sheet this woman is wielding, that your massage therapists at the Grand will be naked? 3) And seductively Asian? 4) Who in Tribeca is driving a wood-paneled Buick station wagon, like the one on the lower right? 5) And is she barefoot on cobblestones downtown? Ew! TriBeCa Grand Hotel apparently offers Naked Turndown Service. [Copyranter]

    10 Jay to Get Five More StoriesAstoria: If a park designated as a “sitting area” has nowhere to sit, is that kind of like if a tree fell in the forest in that park — if there were a forest there — and no one heard it? Is it really a sitting area at all? Or even a forest or a park? Think about it. [Queens Crap] Bushwick: Get your knives out, the Argentines are coming! Uh, your steak knives, that is, because they make great steaks. Get it? [BushwickBK] Dumbo: That landmark building at 10 Jay Street where the raves used to be held in the early aughts? Those aren’t cabanas going on the roof — it’s added five stories! Is it going residential? [DumboNYC]

If our income stays where it is now, we know we’ll qualify. [OuterB] Crown Heights: The Chabad Orthodox sect here has a totally pimped-out ride memorializing the late, great Rebbe Schneerson.

    Buttoned-Up Gowanus? Now That’s a Theoretical Rendering.Bushwick: Hoo-boy. We’re worried that this very outspoken gentrifying gay blogger — “The Ghetto Gauntlet”? “Shitbag bodegas”? — is cruising for a serious, Bushwick-style bruising. [Bushwick] Gowanus: Only more shocking than this rendering of a massive glass tower planned for Third Avenue and 6th Street is its imagining that, in the near future, people in this skanky/hip hood will be wearing suits and ties. [Gowanus Lounge] Harlem: A very angry-sounding Katrina two-year-anniversary rally is planned for 125th Street this afternoon. [Uptown Flavor] Meatpacking District: How could we have missed that the spike-heeled Carrie Bradtrons who’ve overrun the meatpacking district have their very own blogger? (And we love that she thinks area designer Thom Browne might be straight. Come on, girl. The guy wears short shorts.) [Stilettos on Cobblestones] Prospect Heights: In a nice match, newcomers here sound about as unpretentiously boring and nondescript as the neighborhood itself. [Daily Heights] Tribeca: Area landlords are saving on exterminator dollars by recommending that their tenants let loose “Gecos” [sic] on insect invaders. As in the salamander-type creature that’s the car-insurance mascot. Yes, it’s come to that. [Curbed] Willets Point: Did the city encourage blight in the decrepit Iron Triangle area of the Bronx in order to evoke eminent domain and gentrify it? One columnist thinks so. [NYO via OuterB]

    Rich Uptowners Ruin It for EveryoneReal estate in this city is, as you know, expensive. As we understand it, this is fundamentally a supply-and-demand issue: Lots of people want to live here, but there are only so many apartments. Which is why you should resent Robert and Suzanne Cochran, whom the Sun trots out today as the face of a new trend: uptowners buying second homes downtown. The Cochrans live on Park Avenue (and have a place in Wainscott, natch), but decided to pick up a pied-à-terre — a 5,200-square-foot pied-à-terre — in Tribeca.

    Tribeca: Go for the Movies, Stay for the LoftsLet the cinéastes take over the Tribeca Film Festival. It means less crowded open houses for you this weekend. Not that there won’t be enough competition: Tribeca, after all, is one of Manhattan’s best-loved — and most expensive — neighborhoods. The quiet remove, great restaurants, stellar public schools, surprisingly family-friendly vibe, and charming local shops are all good reasons to move here. But what attracts buyers most is the housing stock — row upon row of warehouses refashioned into condos and co-ops filled with high-ceilinged lofts. (There’s new construction, too.) No wonder Tribeca’s the neighborhood of choice for the glitterati (James Gandolfini, Meryl Streep, and, of course, its biggest booster, Robert De Niro, call it home). There’s plenty of room for plebes, too, though the good life doesn’t come cheap. After the jump, a list of properties to view this weekend. —S. Jhoanna Robledo
