Seen & Heard: Art Gallery to Host a Naked Day

••• Apexart is one-upping that strip poker exhibit at Art in General from a couple years back with a Naturalist Day on May 25: “Everyone is welcome to join for all or part of the afternoon; nudity, however, is required. A changing area will be provided. Adults only.” There are also laughter workshops. RSVP by emailing

••• From the LMCCC: “On May 22nd and 23rd, the New York City Department of Transportation will begin installing a new pedestrian plaza on Washington Street, between Albany and Carlisle Streets. The block-long plaza will close the roadway, replacing it with a painted gravel sidewalk, granite blocks, and decorative planters, as well as movable tables and chairs. The plaza is being created with the help of the Downtown Alliance, which will also install an information kiosk at the site.”

••• Ryan Kaplan of Imperial Development Group sent over a correction about 372 Broadway, one of the buildings in the Broadway’s Residential Boom post: “Susan Wires from Stribling will be marketing the project—not Halstead. I believe StreetEasy says that because the former owner had planned to use Halstead, but Streeteasy’s information is outdated. We will also not be calling the project Tribeca 372. We are using the building’s other address: 6 Cortlandt Alley.” We’ll know Broadway has really made it when people don’t find ways around using it: The Leonard, 93 Worth, Franklin Place….

••• 59 Franklin Street will soon be home to a somewhat unlikely business for this part of the world (but it’s no less welcome!), SYNLawn, makers of artificial turf. Thanks to Troy for the heads up and the photo.
