Seen & Heard: Salon Closing

••• Lotus Salon on Reade has closed. The sign on the door says the stylists will be at the 34 N. Moore location “until we find an appropriate space for our service.”

••• Press release: “Connie Fishman [left], President of the Hudson River Park Trust, will leave next month after more than 11 years at the Trust to become Senior Vice President of Real Estate for the YMCA of Greater New York. Fishman has served seven years as Trust President and four as Executive VP, leading the Park through its major development and construction period. In 2010, Hudson River Park reached its 80 percent completion milestone, the result of more than $400 million in capital investment by New York City, State, and the federal government.” Connie has been lovely to work with.

••• Cowboy Junkies—whom I adore—are playing City Winery on Feb. 8. I believe I was the first person to buy tickets, but I resisted buying front-row ones. I’d only do that for Prince.

••• Imagination Playground—”designed by architect David Rockwell to encourage child-directed, unstructured free play […] with a focus on loose parts”—is coming to the Manhattan Youth Downtown Community Center, according to an email that just arrived. No clue if this is old news. It says more info will be at the DCC as of January 18.

••• Daily Candy deal: “Two 60-Minute TRX Classes for You and a Friend for $36 (a $180 value)” at B East Tribeca.

••• From Gymboree Play & Music: “Happy New Year! Happy New Semester! And Happy Winter! Celebrate with Gymboree of Tribeca at our Winter Wonderland Party Monday, January 10, 2011! $20 per child.”

••• Michael Sinatra, a Whole Foods public relations and public affairs manager, responded about the wellness center coming to Whole Foods Tribeca: “In connection to our Health Starts Here program, this center is being designed to offer our shoppers the opportunity to learn about and consume more healthy foods. At this time, there is not too much information available as we are still in the early development stages, however, once I have more information, we’ll be sure to pass it along to you!”

••• 57 Reade—the big-ass building coming to the southwest corner of Broadway and Reade—has its first glass (hat tip to DNAinfo’s Julie Shapiro, for tweeting a mention).
