Seen & Heard: Mailboxes Returned

••• From Christy Frank at Frankly Wines: “The mailbox at W. Broadway and Warren is back! With shiny new bolts.” (The one at W. Broadway and Duane is back, too.)

••• The IPN Tenants Association is throwing a fundraiser (for its legal battle) on Sept. 10. Recipients of “the Tribeca Citizens of the Year Award,” however, do not include yours truly. Anyway, that’s trivia night at Woodrow’s.

••• By Joy Gryson is indeed open. (The grand opening is Sept. 6.) More to come next week….

••• Sushi of Gari (in Bouley’s old Upstairs space) appears to be getting closer; help-wanted signs have been placed in the windows (for sushi chefs, hall staff, and a maitre d’).

••• Press release: “The Howard Hughes Corporation today announced it has executed an agreement with the New York City Economic Development Corporation for a revitalized South Street Seaport. The company’s vision for the Pier 17 building at the Seaport has been approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission with support from Community Board 1. The Howard Hughes Corporation will soon begin the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure for its proposed plan. The proposed building features the complete transformation of Pier 17, including a vibrant, open rooftop and a glass façade encompassing dynamic retail space filled with destination stores, restaurants and neighborhood shops. Larger open spaces on the pier level along with the new rooftop space—ideal for concerts, music and other entertainment events—will showcase breathtaking views of the city skyline, East River and Brooklyn Bridge.”

••• I hate this sign more than this photo can possibly show. Not only is it garish, it protrudes.
