The College Critic’s Riverpark review isn’t the only news coming out of Columbia today. According to the Uptowner, Floridita, the Manhattanville longtimer that was forced to close owing to what landlord Columbia claimed were structural issues, has signed a lease for what the University says is an “attractive relocation space,” the exact address of which hasn’t been disclosed. Owner Ramon Diaz says he got a good deal, but is still bummed that he was forced out earlier than he believed fair: “Nobody would be unemployed, we wouldn’t be closed, and we would be given the opportunity to tell our customers that we were moving down the block, does that sound unreasonable?”
