Seen & Heard: Baked by Melissa

••• Saluggi’s Sandwich Shoppe (note the “-pe”) is now hoping to open Monday.

••• M M De Voe just tweeted that Baked by Melissa is coming to Fulton Street.

••• From Michele Varian (one of the shops in my recent Field Trip article): “Save the Date! Thursday, July 19, 5-8pm. Michele Varian is participating in an old school neighborhood stoop sale along with our South Soho neighbors along Howard and Mercer streets. Get ready for lemonade and cheap and cheerful deals to celebrate summer!” Dunderdon is also among the participating shops.

••• On July 11, three “Robert Ludlum authors” will appear at Mysterious Bookshop. Is that enough for a seance?

••• Tribeca Greenmarket report: “New produce on Saturdays: corn, purple potatoes, apricots, peaches, yellow plums, gooseberries, black raspberries. New produce on Wednesdays: watermelon radishes, cauliflower, peaches. Also: Health Bucks have arrived at Tribeca! For every $5 spent in EBT/Food Stamps, customers receive a $2 Health Buck coupon to purchase additional fruits and vegetables.”

••• A reader named Josh posted this comment for those of you still trying to find out why the Battery Park City Authority is holding up the opening of Asphalt Green Battery Park City: “Matthew Monagan phone rings and rings and then a full VM box comes on. To get through dial 212-417-2000 and ask to speak with him.”

••• From the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center: “The state DOT plans to temporarily reduce West Street traffic lanes for one week starting Saturday, July 7th at 1 a.m., between Vesey and West Thames Streets. Double-lane closures will be in effect in both directions, followed by single-lane closures. Lanes also will be closed between Vesey and Chambers Street on the same days, with shorter hours. In addition, SDOT crews continue to close one lane of both north- and southbound Battery Park Underpass on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for renovation work.”

  1. One more note on the Greenmarket – there is also a textile recycling station next to the compost station for a wide range of textiles (clothes, towels, etc). Newer items will find a new home and tattered donations will be recycled.
