–The Times endorses Dan Goldman in the New York District 10 Democratic Primary. [The New York Times]

–Errol Louis says of the Times’ endorsement: “In a mini-masterpiece of elite liberal reasoning, the Times made no reference to any of the local representatives in the district or the gritty, difficult neighborhood issues on which they have toiled away over the years — sorry, Niou, Rivera, and Simon! — but the board reassured its readers that ‘Those who have worked with Mr. Goldman behind the scenes describe him as diligent and prepared and a person of integrity.’ (Translation: queries within the alumni networks of Sidwell Friends, Yale, and Stanford Law, from which Goldman graduated, turned up good reports and no scandals.)” [New York Magazine]

–The art gallery Magenta Plains make the move from Allen Street to a much larger space at 149 Canal St. [ARTNews]

–At last!: “What once felt like an in-crowd secret is curdling. With every article, Substack entry and half-scathing, half-affectionate tweet about Dimes Square, the scene, whatever it is or whatever it was, gets run further and further into the ground.” [Daily Beast]
