Seen & Heard: 83 Franklin Update

••• Some updates on 83 Franklin, the building I wondered aloud about last week. It’s being converted to residential rentals, says Core’s Doron Zwickel, and its website just went live. There will be 11 apartments, most around 2,000 square feet. The floor plan shown is of a north-facing apartment; click to enlarge. The ground floor will be commercial, but exactly what has not been determined (or perhaps announced).

••• Jung Sik, the fancy Korean restaurant coming to the old Chanterelle space, is scheduled to open in mid-July.

••• From the National September 11th Memorial & Museum: “Looking for foreign-language speakers to record their September 11th memories from around the world. Interested parties must be willing to come to our office in midtown Manhattan, record their brief story in both their native language and English, and then transcribe and translate their foreign language recording. Recording and transcription should take approx. 30 minutes.” This PDF has more info, including the list of languages they need.

••• From Nirvana International: “We will be hosting a special three-day event with jewelry designer Alexandra Mor, that will kick off with an opening night party, June 23, from 5-8pm.”

••• This Tuesday at 8:30am, P.S. 150 parents and students will meet on the plaza for a guitar strum and musical instrument jam.
