Piatto - Wood Fired Pizza, in case of a blackout go here

Piatto – Wood Fired Pizza, looks like it’s coming soon to the waterfront

WELCOME to Stream-of-Consciousness Friday. The Wall Street Journal revealed that Tishman Speyer’s 3-tower project at the top of Jackson Avenue will be called ‘Jackson Park’ and begin leasing this fall, with initial occupancy before year-end.  Will the amenities galore including an outdoor pool and 1.6 acre private park be enough to fill the 1,800 units on glut-laden J.Ave? ->40 years ago this week was a big NYC blackout that I’m guessing fewer than 1/4 of our readers were around for, but those that were are probably familiar with the music of Talking Heads, whose members spent the down time barbecuing hot dogs and burgers on the roof of their LIC loft building -> while we’re on the subject of BBQ, the Times Ledger writes that Mothership Meat Company in Dutch Kills is finally going to open in late July/early August -> writing salon The Oracle Club on 47th Avenue has closed and will be replaced by a dermatologist who comes into a location with an advertised rent of $8500 a month -> Local pols angry at the MTA, Katie Couric and John Leguizamo tour and laud Queens, oh and saving the best for last -> LICtalk once again makes Brick Underground’s Top NYC Blogs list!
