Soule Restaurant: The Buzz...

The National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center is scouring the world for amateur footage of the attacks…Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries wants to bail out luxury apartment developers in his district with new loans that would turn the high-end units into “affordable” residences... Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson Birthday bash was a complete success with thousands coming out to celebrate Jackson’s life... Speaking of MJ, The MTA told a Brooklyn councilwoman to beat it after she suggested that the Hoyt-Schermerhorn subway station be renamed in honor of Michael Jackson, who famously filmed his “Bad” video there in 1987... It’s Fashion Week! Check out highlights online with New York Magazine and Fashion Week Daily... The $100 laptop that was marketed as a saving grace for starving children in Africa is on its way to the New York City public schools. The first round of low-cost laptops is going to two city elementary schools, one in the Bronx, P.S. 5, and one in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn, P.S. 20... Delia Hunnly has resorted to hiring children (none older than 16) to antagonize and heckle Latitia James’ workers. It appears that her tactics have backfired, however, with Clinton Hill residents supporting Ms. James largely due to Hunnly’s unprofessionalism... The worst part of the West Indian Day Parade this year? The NYPD. When did they become so nasty and rude?
