Seen & Heard: Have You Seen This Groper and Toddler-Licker?

wanted-poster-420x629••• What the hell?!? (I don’t mean this snarkily, but is face-licking “rape”? This I do mean snarkily: The NYPD doesn’t know how to spell Tribeca?) Update: As you can see from the comment, this is evidently meant as a joke. I covered the kid’s face.

••• The Old Seaport Block Party is next Saturday.

••• Press release: “NYC non-profit GrowNYC has announced a food scrap collection site at the Bowling Green Greenmarket beginning October 15. Scraps from the Greenmarket at Bowling Green will be processed at the Battery Urban Farm, a one-acre educational farm in the Battery operated by The Battery Conservancy.” Tuesdays, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m, year round.

••• @BrendaTNYC said that Jacques Torres is moving his Hudson Street factory, and the Mr. Chocolate himself confirmed it—production is moving to Sunset Park (which is in Brooklyn?), but the store will remain open.

••• Box Kite Coffee (inside Maslow 6 Wine Bar) will be around until December, at least. Some of the very best coffee around, I’d say.

16_kona_076f3e31-b7ac-4e1d-bfb0-8ae903b494ed_1024x1024••• I’m still on Project No. 8’s mailing list (from when it had a pop-up on Duane), and I’m obsessed with its new website,

••• I just remembered to post the answer to the Where in Tribeca…? coaster game.

••• HBO drama The Money is shooting around Chambers on Saturday. @Jaywkng found this on Backstage: “This drama series about wealth and corruption among the super elite focuses on American mogul and patriarch Rupert Murdoch James Castman, who wields power and influence to expand his media empire and control his family. With Brendan Gleeson and Nathan Lane.”

••• NotifyNYC: “From 12:01 AM Saturday, 10/12 until 6 AM Monday, 10/14 the Brooklyn Bridge will be closed to inbound/westbound traffic.”

••• New gallery up on Varick (near King): Jack Geary is pleased to announce the opening of his exhibition, Vadis Turner: Past Perfection. Featuring Turner’s recent work, the exhibition focuses on her use of fabric and mixed media. The show will be on view September 27 through October 26 at the gallery’s new location, 185 Varick Street.” (It was a deli.)

  1. Do we know for a fact that the semiliterate poster above was actually issued by the NYPD? If so, that’s pretty sad. I appreciate that those folks put their lives on the line to protect the public, but hiring a freelance editor from time to time would not break the bank.

  2. @David: You got me wondering if it was a prank, but the guy who answered Det. Carter’s line said it was real (and he answered it NYPD etc etc).

  3. Huh. Looks like a Banksy though, by the drawing

  4. They are FAKE, some stupid kids were putting them up as a joke to get back at a friend.

  5. You idiot. It’s a prank

  6. I’m confused. Isn’t TriBeCa the triangle below Canal Street? How is the Jacques Torres Factory not in SoHo? Did TriBeCa expand into SoHo?

  7. @sarah: From the start, this site has occasionally covered areas beyond Tribeca—including Battery Park City, the Financial District, and, yes, even Soho.
