Seen & Heard: Whoopie Pies

••• May’s cookie of the month at Tribeca Treats is the whoopie pie. T minus four days….

heller-by-tribeca-citizen••• Former architect Lawrence Saul Heller is showing his “sculptures and constructions” in the empty storefront at 86 Franklin—he has a studio upstairs—through mid May and through July by appointment (917-224-2747). It was closed when I stopped by, so this photo of the promo card was the best I could do. The works look very interesting—and I don’t mean that in an intentionally vague way.

••• On Thursday, Poets House will celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day (hope it’s bigger than a haiku) by handing out poems: “Distribution sites will include the Port Authority Ferry Terminal at the World Financial Center during morning commute time, 7:30–9:00am; Whole Foods Market and the World Financial Center at lunchtime, starting at noon; and local elementary schools, Barnes & Noble, and the new Battery Park City public library all day. And, of course, Poets House will also be offering give-away poems at its home at 10 River Terrace all day.” Now if they could only get those New York Dolls guys to hand out poetry….
