Seen & Heard: 56 Leonard Waterfall

••• Did anyone else notice the waterfall at 56 Leonard over the weekend? You could even hear it from across Church Street. (Then again, on Labor Day weekend you can hear a pin drop around here.)

••• The storefronts in the passageway between the World Trade Center PATH station and Brookfield Place are now visible.

••• Childrenswear brand Egg by Susan Lazar opens its new Franklin Street store (next to where All Good Things was) today.

••• I got the tiniest peek inside the old Jerry’s Café space at 90 Chambers. If it’s not a nail salon, I’ll be surprised. Wondering if the one on Warren, in 149-151 Church, is moving (since that building is being torn down).

••• One Vandam is getting its actual façade…. I’ll miss the black grid “clipping system.”

  1. I saw and heard the waterfall. It went on all weekend and was still going at 4pm.

  2. Yes, I believe the manicure place on Warren is moving to Chambers, at least that is what the sign inside their shop says (late October).
