Seen & Heard: Capsouto Park

••• CaVaLa Park has been officially renamed Albert Capsouto Park in honor of the late Albert Capsouto, of the Capsouto Frères.

••• A CBS drama called “Blue Bloods” is shooting on Duane, Reade, Church, and Broadway today. It stars Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg (that’s him in the photo, actually), and Bridget Moynihan.

••• Farinella‘s new outpost on the Upper East Side is open; it’s at 1132 Lexington (bet. 78th and 79th Sts.). Also, Farinella is today’s deal on Blackboard Eats: 30% off—but the fine print is a dealbreaker substantial (“available during dinner with the minimum purchase of one full palam [whole pizza] per party; max party: 4; dine-in only; valid at the Worth St. location only”).

••• I just learned on Twitter that you can get a free tote bag by popping into Apexart.

••• Free shipping on Khushi if you order before Nov. 1.

••• Get a free trial class at B East, the new TRX studio on Broadway: ” Call Romaine @ 212 766 BTRX or email to set up a time to drop in!”

••• Travelzoo deal: “$49 for a 3-course dinner or lunch for 2 at Trattoria Cinque, normally $112. Choose any 2 appetizers, main courses and dessert.”



  1. I was at the park for the ceremony. The politicians said all that was appropriate, but the brothers were very moving. I’m glad that the park will be renamed and Albert honored in this way. I love the idea of neighborhood parks being named after people important to the neighborhood.

  2. I totally agree, although I never met Albert; everyone says he contributed so much to the area. (And CaVaLa always felt like a placeholder name.)

  3. Albert was a real gentleman and a truly nice human being.
    Bravo….a decision that actually makes sense.
