TRIBECA—The neighborhood's six Chases are getting a seventh sibling. A Racked correspondent spotted signage at Murray and Greenwich Streets promising a new bank, which should prove useful if you're on the West Side Highway and suddenly find yourself in need of cash. [RackedWire]
MIDTOWN EAST—The Lacoste store at 575 Madison Ave is throwing a party from 6 PM to 8 PM tonight in honor of newish novel How the Other Half Hamptons. (The book's author is something of an expert on the topic, having written a New York Post column on it.) The store will be open for business; expect free wine and hors d'oeuvres among the miniature alligators.
