Seen & Heard: New Murals

••• There are new public art murals on the construction fence at 37 Warren. Hipster children shall not go unrepresented!

••• I meant to post this Tribeca Greenmarket report before yesterday. Sorry! The market really is fantastic. “Saturdays: honeycrisp apples, gingergold apples, cortland apples, macoun apples, paula red apples, plums, bartlett pears, concord grapes, champagne grapes, heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, sungold tomatoes, pumpkins, acorn squash, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, many eggplant varieties, okra, green beans, purple beans,”—which turn green when you blanch them, we learned the disappointing way—”romano beans, beets, carrots and more.” And at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 8, “Cate Bruce-Low, former personal chef, cooking instructor, mother of three, and author of blog Tribeca Yummy Mummy, will be cooking up a scrumptious, seasonal dish at the Greenmarket.” Cate did the very first TCQ&A, if I remember correctly.

••• Remember how I asked you, pathetically, to “like” the site via the Facebook button in the lefthand sidebar? Because I was upset that it was so low (around 175) when the number of likes on Facebook is more like 915? Something happened yesterday, and—as you can see—now the number to the left is 67. I’m trying to take it as a valuable lesson not to give a hoot.

••• “A new interactive touch-screen panel is now helping riders find the latest transit information at the Bowling Green 4/5 station. Unveiled September 19, the ‘On the Go! Travel Station'”—name fail!—”works similar to a smartphone, allowing customers entering the station to use the Trip Planner, find real-time train statuses, review escalator and elevator locations, and explore local neighborhood maps. The Travel Station is part of a pilot project the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is rolling out to five transit stations in three boroughs, including Penn Station, Grand Central, Atlantic Ave–Pacific St, and Jackson Heights–Roosevelt Ave.” I would’ve called it the TravelPrompter. —From the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center
