NEW YORK — Three years ago, after hearing about Brooklyn’s burgeoning Little France through word of mouth, Jean-Jacques Bernat relocated his bistro there. He said his new neighbors reacted to his arrival by revamping their own businesses — adding a fresh coat of paint here, replacing a crumbling light fixture there. “We stimulated the neighborhood,” said Bernat, who described his Provence en Boite as a “neighborhood institution” thanks to a steady flow of customers seeking homemade croissants and crusty baguettes, comfort foods like crepes and quiches, or just to exchange a few words in their native tongue. In this section of Brooklyn's Carroll Gardens, expatriates mingle easily with celebrities and non-French clients who live near Smith Street, the area’s central artery known locally as “Restaurant Row.”

‘Blue’ is First Residential Project for Renowned Global Architect Bernard Tschumi New York, NY- September 12, 2005 – A breathtakingly beautiful, 16-story, luxury condominium, with an exterior that resembles a perfectly cut azure gemstone, is about to rise on New York’s historic Lower East Side, on the former parking lot belonging to Ratner’s, the legendary 100-year old, world-famous kosher restaurant known for traditional Jewish dairy delicacies. Named Blue, the elegant 32-apartment property is the Lower East Side’s first residential full-time doorman building, and the first multifamily project undertaken by world famous architect Bernard Tschumi, who presided as Dean of Architecture at Columbia University from 1988-2003. Situated at 105 Norfolk Street a half block from the “F” train entrance on Delancey Street, Blue’s Ratner connection extends even further--its sales office, located across the street from the building at 100 Norfolk Street, occupies Ratner’s former restaurant kitchen.
A few months ago we posted a short video sampling (see below) of the urban scenery in New York City’s Meat Packing District.
