Seen & Heard: 50 Franklin

••• Received an amusing email from a reader who lives in 50 Franklin (right). “Good old 50 Franklin (luxury new construction condo) was previously denoted as a Tribeca building by StreetEasy, but has since been ‘demoted’ (?) to Chinatown. Not even a Chinatown/Tribeca/Civic Center mix, just Chinatown. It’s a shame, as folks like me who have absolutely ruled out Chinatown from their searches won’t be as likely to stumble upon this building, which to me is a gem.” I emailed StreetEasy; I’d say there’s a 15% chance I’ll hear back. Have you noticed how no one feels the need to respond anymore?

••• From Doodledeals: $59 for a full-leg and bikini wax at Euphoria Spa.

••• From Groupon: Burger Burger, which I guess is in FiDi.

••• Pen Parentis is celebrating: Two authors who have read at the group’s literary salon, Jennifer Egan and Darin Strauss, recently won National Book Awards; a third, Austin Ratner just won a lucrative Jewish Book Award. Anyway, the 2011 Pen Parentis Writing Fellowship for New Parents is accepting applications through Apr. 20.
