Seen & Heard: Enterprise Heads Upriver

••• The space shuttle Enterprise was floated upriver today on its way to the Intrepid. Thanks to Gold Street Photography for the photo! UPDATE: Albert Lee sent in two great pix, too. I added them at the end of this post. Click to enlarge.

••• A reader sent in a sign of progress at Asphalt Green: Exercise equipment is being moved in.

••• Alycea Ungaro of Real Pilates reports that a swindler is making the rounds. He came by asking about an earring his wife lost at the studio, and when the staffer said they only had a watch in the lost and found, he said, “Oh, that’s right! It was a watch!” As if that wasn’t dumb enough, he came back a few days later and tried again.

••• Duxiana will soft-open in the old Just Scandinavian space by June 23. As you learned first here, it’ll be the first time in years that the Swedish company will sell its non-bed furniture in the U.S.

••• The other day a neighbor pointed out that I really should add Made Fresh Daily on Front Street to the Tribeca Citizen Restaurant Guide, and when I said, “But I haven’t expanded it into the Seaport yet,” she reminded me how handy it is that it’s open on weekends. So I went for lunch today to refresh my memory—had a great tuna salad—and I’ll write it up as soon as I post this. But I also wanted to point out that the restaurant is selling pretty bouquets and potted plants by Stage Floral Styling.

••• On my way home, I spotted a sign in the window at SamSara on Water Street saying it’ll reopen June 12.

••• Reader Rose Sue sent this in: “My kids and I have registered to hold an event with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer. We will have a small lemonade stand outside of Whole Foods on Saturday, June 9 from 12-4 selling ice-cold lemonade and baked goodies. My youngest daughter, Reese, was diagnosed with Leukemia (ALL) about a year ago. My older daughter goes to P.S. 234. Last year the school collected Coins for Change and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation was one of the charities selected to receive their coins. Learning about childhood cancer through ALSF helped us a lot with our girls and we are really excited to help others now.”

••• Some beautiful work by Russell Sharon coming to Cheryl Hazan starting June 14.
