Seen & Heard: Humble Fish Is Open

••• “Poke & drink” restaurant Humble Fish has opened at 35 Lispenard. It looks really nice! Full report in the next day or two. Couldn’t take photos yesterday because my camera unexpectedly died.

••• I decided not to attend the Community Board 1 Licensing Committee meeting last night because there was no telling when the Tribeca applications would be discussed (13 FiDi items were ahead of them on the agenda), and they didn’t strike me as worth a two-to-three-hour investment. If you were there and have anything to report, please do.

••• Here’s bus YT31 illegally dropping passengers off on Walker Street yesterday afternoon. The NYPD is responsible for—but uninterested in?—enforcing regulations regarding intercity buses.

••• There’s work going on in the former Almond space at 186 Franklin. Could be nothing, I suppose. Anyone know anything? And there’s never been a “for rent” sign there, right?

••• The plaza on the south side of the World Trade Center Oculus looks pretty done. I suspect it won’t open until more work has progressed at 3 World Trade Center, on its other side.

••• Press release: “Vintage and artisan market Artists & Fleas will be opening its newest and biggest location yet on Broadway in Soho at 568 Broadway (at Prince) on May 13. The 10,000 sq. ft. market will feature over 100 hand-selected merchants, representing the best of the vibrant New York artist and design community.” You might know A&F from its stores in Williamsburg and Chelsea Market. UPDATE: It’s now opening May 12.
