Usually we can't wait for summer and all the parties, concerts and events it brings. But we're saddened by the news that perennial TONY favorite 92YTribeca will be closing its doors in a few months, after five years of excellent programming. (And we're pretty sure Paul Rudd, who was in this 92YTribeca ad in 2009, is upset about it too. We feel you, bro.)
While Robert De Niro is clearly doing his bit to make the neighborhood more culturally vibrant, let's face it: Tribeca is gonna suck just a little more after this. It's not all doom and gloom, though. The flagship uptown 92nd Street Y location is still going strong, plus 92Y has promised to partner with other venues to continue offering events below 14th Street.
