Seen & Heard: The Woodman

••• Just noticed the special cobblestoning at the Hubert/Collister intersection. Overly precious? Money being spent in the wrong places? I’m not sure I agree with those statement—just wondering aloud.

••• After a summer break, Kutsher’s Tribeca is back to serving lunch on weekdays, both in the dining room and express-style at the bar. Favorites include the Reuben, house-cured pastrami, Country Club Chopped Salad, duck borscht, pastrami Reuben egg roll, and quinoa salad. And of course there’s brunch on weekends (10 a.m.–3 p.m.), with egg dishes, challah French toast, and more. Delivery is available via phone orders and Seamless. Sponsored

••• Jill sent in these two photos from the Woody Allen film being shot in front of the Tribeca Grand this morning. I walked over and it took me a while to spot Alec Baldwin, who isn’t just shorter than I expected, he’s thinner.

••• Tribeca’s own Jennifer Gilbert is going to be on Jeff Probst’s talk show this Friday (or at least that’s when it’s taping?). I know because they asked if they could use this post she graciously wrote for Tribeca Citizen back in 2009.

••• Did we know that 70 Franklin is going residential? (That’s the building where Peter Tunney’s studio used to be—you know, the one with the message to Bill Cunningham in the window.) I noticed this morning that the permit—dated August 9, 2012—on the door mentions “conversion of commercial space to class ‘A’ apartments.”

••• An update to yesterday’s post about the lunch options at All Good Things: Cavaniola’s Gourmet got a sandwich press.

••• A reader would like to draw your attention to artist Liam Dean, whose works are currently on view at John Allan’s on Washington.

••• Does this mean that the recently renovated—and looking fine—55 White is getting trees? (If it didn’t have them before….) I hope so! Bring on the trees!
