Seen & Heard: Cool Exhibit

••• If you haven’t gone to Thierry Despont’s “Le Cabinet de Curiositiés” yet, I’m going to have to insist you do it. I went back yesterday—Adam’s grandmother has been in town—and it really is wonderful. The attendant did say that it might be a good idea to call the Marlborough Gallery (212-541-4900) to make sure it’s being staffed that day.

••• From the Downtown Alliance: “[We] will host a MulchFest and Electronic Waste Recycling Event to help New Yorkers avoid a post-holiday headache by collecting holiday trees and unwanted electronic goods on Saturday, January 7, 2012. The event […] will take place at the south end of Bowling Green Park starting at 10 a.m.” There’s also a special Downtown Connection bus that’ll pick up your tree that day. Here are the stops (every half hour): Wall and William, John and Gold, Pearl between Fulton and Beekman, W. Thames between Battery Place and South End, South and and Albany. What, no Tribeca?

••• You may recall that the New York Law School is taking over more of the ground floor 40 Worth—specifically the southeast corner of Worth and W. Broadway, which used to be government offices. I should be happy the space isn’t vacant, but now that the windows are uncovered, I have to wonder if this really needed to be at street level.

  1. Erik;

    You are so right to insist that people visit Despont’s exhibit. It is a rare opportunity to see truly unique works of art, breathtaking panelled rooms and way over the top French antiques. I’ve been taking everybody to this hidden gem.

  2. There will also be a ‘Mulchfest’ on January 7th at Bogardus Gardens. Bring your non-denominational holiday bushes to be desposed of between 9AM-12 Noon.

  3. Good news that the North End Grill lives up to expectations and Danny Meyer. And Good News too that the Despont was extended!
