A Dyckman Street deli that has been part of the neighborhood for more than a quarter of a century will close its doors next week due to an increase in the cost of its space, the owner said.
The Dyckman Seaman Grocery, located at the intersection of Dyckman Street and Seaman Avenue, will close on July 31 after more than 26 years in business, owner Manuel Diaz said.
He explained that he can no longer afford to keep the store open due to the sharp increase in property taxes passed on to him by his landlord.
“The rent is high, but we could make a living with it,” Diaz said. “But not with the real estate taxes. I’m paying almost the same for the taxes as I do for rent.”

Columbia University’s freshmen football players have ventured beyond the school’s gates this summer, cleaning uptown parks and gardens and reading to youngsters in Inwood as part of the four-week community service program launched by coach Peter Mangurian three years ago.
“It’s really important for us to not just say we want to be a part of the community, but to get out there and be a part of it,” said Mangurian. “We’re trying to cultivate a tradition in Columbia football. It benefits everybody.”

In a city piled high with ambitious architecture, a seven-floor structure off the beaten path boasts a distinction of its own: It’s billed as the first multistory, modular-built apartment building to open in the nation’s apartment capital.
Called the Stack, the building near Manhattan’s northern tip aims to show that while stackable apartments can save builders time and money, modular doesn’t have to mean monotonous. Its chunky front embraces its building-block roots, but the apartments’ interiors defy their boxy components with varied floor plans and stylish fixtures and finishes.
