CITIZEN STYLE | JUNE 2012
It’s time for Mona Akhtar’s monthly look at who’s rocking the sidewalk. And remember, if she stops you on the street, say yes!

PETER STANICK’S “BROADWAY”
“The Internet and working with digital images has a direct, even immediate influence on my way of thinking,” explains artist Peter Stanick about his new show Broadway, a series of pieces questioning public perception within an image-saturated urban environment, opening at One Art Space tonight. Stop by and meet him: He’ll be present from 6 to 9 p.m. Broadway has also been released as a book on iTunes. Sponsored by Stanick.com.

REVEALED: THE LOCATION OF MASA SPINOFF TETSU
It’s not coming to an existing restaurant space. Also on the CB1 agendas for June: The prepared-food restaurant coming to Warren Street, a new restaurant on Broadway, a rooftop pavilion on Watts, beer and wine in the Battery Park Bosque, and more.
