Seen & Heard: New Amsterdam Market

••• Mona Akhtar sent in this photo from Broadway and Murray. She wasn’t sure if he was hanging out for the Five Boro Bike Tour or just because.

••• From New Amsterdam Market: “Please hold the date of Tuesday, May 15, when I will be presenting our proposal to house New Amsterdam Market year-round within the old Fulton Fish Market buildings to the Seaport and Civic Center Committee of Manhattan Community Board One. […] Your presence at this important meeting will be tremendously helpful towards supporting our shared vision for the Seaport. Please spread the word to your lists, come if you can, and please let us know by sending a note to:”

••• A tweet from @MMDevoe about the new restaurant (and soda fountain!) on Peck Slip: “Grandma’s looked near opening—cute decor, reminded me of Cosmopolitan Café or Kitchenette.”

••• Kanye West has a new song called “I Don’t Like” that includes this line performed by Pusha T: “Soho, Tribeca / Three hos, trifecta.” (I don’t think the plural of ho is hoes, like the garden tool…?) Anyway, people on Twitter think it’s hysterical and/or clever. You can hear it here; not work appropriate. UPDATE: A spelling that never occurred to me.

••• And another reader (who wants to remain anonymous) sent in this video of model Karolina Kurkova from the Limited shoot the other day. It’s not exactly newsworthy, but (a) there’s a fabulous absurdity about how she’s vamping along Franklin Street while life goes on around her; and (b) I love the funky warm-up stretch (:10–:15). Can someone please make me a gif of that, looped over and over?
