Seen & Heard: Tribeca Film Festival’s Family Events

••• The word is that Downtown Wine & Liquors might stay around as long as mid-June, but I hear the stock is getting snapped up. (Almost everything is 30% off.)

••• The Tribeca Film Festival’s ESPN Family Field Day is April 22: “Free, family-friendly day of film, sports, and fun features back-to-back screenings of classic [?!] sports films Angels in the Outfield and Space Jam for the whole family to enjoy, along with sports clinics, photo ops, face painting, special games and activities, and more. The Sports Activities will be set up in and around BMCC, including the tented Lower Courtyard area, the Main Entrance Plaza and the basketball courts at Washington Market Park.” And on April 29, “join Brad Kane, the singing voice of Aladdin, for a special performance of a soundtrack favorite before the free screening.”

••• From NotifyNYC: “[Today] a low-flying Cessna 208 aircraft will begin conducting laser mapping of the NYC shoreline in all five boroughs. The aircraft will be flying at an altitude of approximately 1,475 feet and will be using a laser to measure erosion. This work will continue nightly from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. through August 2017.”

••• Pen Parentis’s April 11 salon is “themed Art and Theft, featuring the only professor of Art Crime in the country, Erin Thompson along with the renown novelists Susan Daitch, and Wendy Lee, whose latest books are, respectively, White Lead and The Art of Confidence.The details.

••• Captain David Caporale of emailed to remind us all that his company, Tribeca Sailing, is a terrific way to explore the harbor: “We offer two-hour tours to the Statue of Liberty leaving from North Cove Marina in Battery Park City. With a maximum of six passengers on board, people are guaranteed a personal and intimate sailing experience. (The larger tour boats carry over 200 people.) With our current administration in Washington, tourism to the Statue of Liberty has increased dramatically year on year as our Statue stands for everything America has stood for since the beginning.” It’s a great idea for entertaining out-of-town guests, and rates start at $90 per person. Plus: Last year, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did it. Seriously, that’s him below.
