56 Leonard 12213••• Some of 56 Leonard’s funky angles are beginning to show.

••• Meanwhile, a couple blocks away: Check out 15 Leonard! That’s not a block I walk down every day, so I was surprised to see how fast it was going up. The final building will be nine stories; rendering here.

••• I posted the answer to  last week’s stumper of a Where in Tribeca…?

••• Le Restaurant (at/under All Good Things) is now open Wednesdays.

••• The Greek will be more like the Greco-Indian this Thursday: “We are also excited to announce our Bollywood night. We will be merging Greek and Indian culture pairing Indian music with Greek hospitality, Indian inspired food with Greek wine. Executive chef Cosmo Bisticas will be preparing spanakopita samosas, dolmades with indian lemon rice and raita-tzatziki, and lamb mousaka Indian style. Make sure to wear vibrant colors and bring your best spirits.”

••• The Gurhan jewelry boutique—sorry, atelier—posted signage at its upcoming spot on Franklin that includes “Create the Jewelry of your Dreams.” Does that mean there’s some DIY aspect?

••• From M.M. DeVoe of Pen Parentis: “Thumbs up to the excellent light show in new Fulton subway station!”
