Seen & Heard: Hudson Plaza

I was out of town last week, so this may all be old news by now…

••• The temporary Hudson Street pedestrian plaza—maybe we can come up with a name for it?—between Chambers and Reade is up. Looks nice.

••• The space formerly home to Pomme is becoming an outpost of a Project No. 8—a Lower East Side boutique (described by New York magazine as “a minimalist ode to chic design, vintage finds and handpicked European fashion”) that also runs the gift shop in the Ace Hotel. The Duane Street space appears to be exclusively selling silk dresses by Kostas Murkudis. I’m trying to find out if it’s temporary.

••• On Sept. 16 from 6 p;m. to 8 p.m. there’ll be an opening reception for “UR New York, Street View” the new exhibit at Cheryl Hazan Gallery.

••• A psychic/astrologer named Lauren appears to have set up shop on N. Moore in the space that used to be the Fontana Arte shop/showroom. Presumably temporary; I’ve emailed.

••• Here’s the new look for Franklin Caffé Buon Gusto (taking over for Franklin Café Tavola Calda)….

••• On Sept. 15, Charles Kipps (Crystal Death) will read at Mysterious Bookshop.

••• Save $150 on Alycea Ungaro‘s next retreat in Nicaragua (Jan. 29–Feb. 4) by booking before Oct. 31.
