Seen & Heard: Butterfly Signage

••• The Butterfly has put up a kitschy (and Kutsher’s-y?) sign. Photo courtesy @eatmedrinkmenyc.

••• Good news for Battery Park: “The Battery Conservancy has been selected to receive 5% of net sales from all 7 Manhattan Whole Foods Markets locations on Thursday, June 27.”

••• Cafe 92YTribeca is closing tomorrow.

••• The concert scheduled for today in Washington Market Park has been canceled due to today’s derecho.

••• The TV show “Unforgettable” is shooting all over the area this week. In case you forgot, that’s the one that’s about “Carrie Wells, a former NY Police detective, [who] has a rare medical condition that gives her the ability to visually remember everything. She rejoins the force and uses her ability to solve crimes.” (Thanks, IMDB.)

••• June 20-23 at Pier 25: The North River Historic Ship Festival. “Free dockside tours of the steam-powered lighthouse tender, Lilac and  the 99-year-old wooden barge Lehigh Valley No. 79. Free river trips on the world-famous and water-spraying retired NYC fireboat John J. Harvey and on South Street Seaport Museum’s historic schooner Pioneer. The 106-year-old tug Pegasus will also offer river trips if her schedule permits. Two circus performances on a covered wooden barge. Fishing on the pier, river-critter touch-tank explorations and knot-tying aboard Lilac.” Some are free, some are not. More info at

••• According to this van, at least the East Village MaryAnn’s will also be called Dahlia’s. (Only later did I realize that the other side might have listed other locations to be renamed.) Why Tribeca’s MaryAnn’s has only changed one of its awnings remains a mystery.Dahlias van
