Squadron’s Terror Trial Vote, All About Isser Reznik, Bunny Chow Not Closing

Must Read

The State Senate passed a resolution opposing the Obama Administration’s decision to hold the terror trials in Lower Manhattan. Senator Daniel Squadron was one of 7 dissenters, says the Albany Times Union:

“This is my district, this is my community in lower Manhattan,” Squadron said. “But we are not going to turn our back on the fundamental tenets of our country.” Squadron made clear that he didn’t want the trials held in the neighborhood, but voted against the resolution because it calls for the alleged terrorists – among them Khalid Sheikh Mohammed – to be tried in military tribunals, not civilian courts.

At the New York Press Club last night, former DA Robert Morgenthau said on the 9/11 terror trials, “I’d get as far away from Manhattan as I could.” He called holding the trials near Ground Zero a “ridiculous and absurd” idea.

Gotham Schools reports charter school advocates are increasingly uneasy about their support (or lack thereof) in Albany. Adding to the anxiety: concerns about David Paterson’s future. So far, Andrew Cuomo has declined to indicate whether he’d support raising the charter cap.

Sarah Litvin of the Tenement Museum writes in The Jewish Week, “More troubling than chic new businesses are the ways in which opponents of Lower East Side gentrification are focusing on buildings rather than people in their campaigns to preserve the neighborhood.”

Rep. Carolyn Maloney proposes legislation banning “political mailings that cast themselves as “census” surveys.”

The Museum at Eldridge Street goes sleuthing – and turns up fascinating details about Isser Reznik, “an Eldridge Street legend.”

The Meatball Shop is open.

Contrary to earlier reports, Bunny Chow is not closing.

Ed Levine ventures “beyond the pastrami” at Katz’s Deli.

Nate Appleman tells Slice that Pulino’s (on the Bowery) is about three weeks from opening – and:

…he’s tired of the soggy centers often found in Neapolitan pies and is looking to do something different. He says he’s been working with the bakers at (Keith) McNally’s Balthazar Bakery, and they’ve come up with a dough that yields crust that’s ultra thin yet remains crisp and, he says, exhibits no tip sag.
