Seen & Heard: BMCC Trailers Finally Getting Packed Up

••• A bit of trompe l’oeil for you, starring 56 Leonard and the AT&T Long Lines Building.

••• We actually did this today. Howard can’t really walk well anymore, and he needs stimulation or he’s going to drive me nuts (he gets up at 530 a.m. like clockwork now). So if you see us, you can try saying hi, but I might not make eye contact. (Howard didn’t seem to mind it, if you were curious.)

••• A TV show called “The Blacklist” is shooting in southeast Tribeca on Monday. From IMDB: “Former government agent Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington (James Spader) has eluded capture for decades. But he suddenly surrenders to the FBI with an offer to help catch a terrorist under the condition that he speaks only to Clarice Starling Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Keen (Megan Boone), a young FBI profiler who’s just barely out of Quantico.”

••• MaryAnn’s appealed the $1.6 million decision against it for making a lesbian chef’s life intolerable, and lost:

The record evidence, which is extensive and corroborated by multiple witnesses, amply supports the jury’s verdict that, in violation of the New York City Human Rights Law (City HRL), plaintiff’s employer, defendant Edward Globular, the principal of Gloria’s Tribecamex Inc., which owned the restaurant where plaintiff worked as chef and manager, discriminated against her based on her religion and sexual orientation by, amongst other things, holding weekly prayer meetings at the restaurant where plaintiff worked which the staff viewed as mandatory, fearing that they would lose their jobs if they did not attend, repeatedly stating that homosexuality is “a sin,” and that “gay people” were “going to go to hell” and generally subjecting her to an incessant barrage of offensive anti-homosexual invective (see NYC Admin Code § 8-107[a]). Additional evidence demonstrated that as a result of Globokar’s improper conduct, plaintiff was retaliated against for objecting to his offensive comments, choosing not to attend workplace prayer meetings, and refusing to fire another employee because of his sexual orientation, and was constructively discharged [….]

••• Michael noticed that the BMCC trailers appear to be on their way out. And you thought it would never happen….

  1. Erik, if you’re carrying around a Bjorn, no more looking down on us breeders.

  2. Had a pug who died last year. Back and hip problems took her down.
    Be very careful with their backs. Bjorn is not a good idea even though hilarious.

  3. Howard sure does look cute in that Bjorn. I used to see a pug in Soho being wheeled around in a stroller. So maybe that’s another (even more embarrassing) option?

  4. @Dan: I don’t look down on people with kids! But I don’t especially look up to them, either. @Kiff: I’m so sorry. I’m not sure Howard will spend much time in this, and if we did go that route, we’ll definitely check with his vet. @KP: Now we’re talking! I can just imagine someone peeking in to check out my adorable baby. only to have Howard giving them the stinkeye. Maybe Babesta can give me a loaner….

  5. I can’t stop looking at that picture of Howard strapped to your chest.
    I have two pugs. Do they make doubles? (Kidding)
    He sure is cute.
