TRIBECA IN CRISIS: Cutbacks on Maids, Dressage!

New, 33 comments

The recession has come to the 10013, and friends, it has hit hard. City Room sees the signs all over: "The parks are filled with families who used to spend their summers away from Manhattan. Residents have mentioned cutting back on domestic help." The chairman of CB1's Tribeca Committee goes deeper: "All the parents in the neighborhood, it's on their minds to economize. They try to enroll their kids in Little League, which is less expensive from what parents used to do, like horseback riding. We had our 4-year-old's birthday party in our own apartment. We didn't rent out a space." [City Room]
