DeNiro's Downtown Hotel Delayed
What's going on at Robert DeNiro's Downtown Hotel? For such a buzz-worthy property, it's been eerily quiet the past six months. (Though the mysterious Down By The Hipster blog told us the hotel "will make the Bowery Hotel look like a Red Roof Inn.") We had to put on our reporter caps to dig up even the slightest bit of news.
But it's big news, at least to us: According to a spokesbot at NYC and Co., the hotel opening will be delayed until 2008. We originally had the opening date pegged for early this year, but the TriBeCa property is drifting closer and closer to 6 Columbus infamy. (A call over to Rockwell Group, the designer, hasn't been returned yet.)
