Seen & Heard: Flywheel Opening Update

PS234 scarves••• The P.S. 234 fundraiser Friends & Fashion debuts today at 295 Greenwich (between Chambers and Warren), selling new and gently used women’s clothing, accessories, and shoes. It’s open through this Friday only, 8:45 a.m. to 7 p.m.

••• Flywheel Sports—the new indoor cycling studio at Greenwich and Hubert—is indeed opening soon: I heard from them that previews will begin Dec. 5.

••• New Amsterdam Market rang the alarm: “On Tuesday November 19 at 6 p.m., Community Board 1 will hear a presentation by the Howard Hughes Corporation regarding their proposal to demolish the Fulton Fish Market New Market Building and replace it with a tower of considerable height.” Supporters of the market are urged to attend the meeting, which is in Southbridge Towers; directions here.

••• A bunch of guesses came in about last week’s Where in Tribeca…?, so thanks for that. Alas, none were correct. Here’s a hint: It’s by a subway station stairway. (Update: We have a winner!)

••• This Saturday at the Clocktower Gallery (6-8 p.m.): “A closing celebration in the Clocktower Gallery’s historic building, home to groundbreaking exhibitions, performances, residencies, and radio. After 40 years, this is the absolute final public event ever for this legendary alternative space. Free and open to the public. RSVP required. With surprises, Clocktower artists of all generations on hand, and a peek into the future.”

••• Interesting art show opening tomorrow (Nov. 19) at Maslow 6 Wine Bar: “Fourteen artists were shown a collection of photographs by Stephen Pile, a New York based photographer with a past engulfed with rural life. The artists sifted through the photos in search of one that spoke to them. The result is ‘Life is Wonderful.'” Pile is also the local photographer who documented the cat (and her kittens) living at the Chambers Street construction site. Related: Here’s a photo of the two construction cats he adopted, Chambers and Hudson.
