Seen & Heard: SoulCycle Is Closing for Three Weeks

••• Stay strong, Rockstars. (Thanks to @TylerSoliday for sending it over.)

SoulCycle••• Washington Market Tavern opens for lunch as of today.

Washington Market Tavern lunch menu••• The Barnes & Noble at Union Square gets David Mitchell on Sept. 15. (So excited about The Bone Clocks! I preordered a copy at McNally Jackson because I’m still boycotting Amazon.) The Barnes & Noble Tribeca, meanwhile, gets Dawn “Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island” Wells on Sept. 17.

••• Remember: The always popular Inside Tribeca Loft Tour is October 19. Buy tickets now. Proceeds benefit the Friends of Duane Park. And: “We are seeking a total of 175 volunteers for the 2014 TriBeCa Loft Tour!  In exchange for volunteering for a 2-hour shift (either 1-3pm or 3-5pm), you will receive a free ticket to take the tour yourself (value $60!).  Sign up with friends and make a day of it taking the tour before or after your shift! If you’re interested in volunteering, email and/or sign up here. Firm commitments only please.” (I’d email rather than use the online form, which shows everyone’s info.)

••• 19 Park Place (the Silver Sliver) kicked off sales, with units on three floors listed. More interestingly, to me, are two renderings from its website that I don’t think we had seen before.

19 Park Place rendering2••• From Aqua: “On September 8, we will be adding one more benefit to our classes: salt water. Salt water is gentle on your eyes and skin and gives you a ‘soft water’ feel while providing the same level of sanitation than chlorine.”

••• The storefronts at 19 and 21 Warren are on the market. (They’re currently home to Hands On! and New York Vintners, respectively.) Both listings say that the leases are up in the first quarter of 2016, “offering prospective owners the opportunity and flexibility to capitalize on the areas surge in retail rents.”

••• The Downtown Alliance had a politician party to celebrate the opening of the Albany Street Plaza. As you can see from the Instagram post, we can expect a Greenmarket and arts programming.

  1. If Flywheel Tribeca doesn’t jump on that opportunity I won’t feel bad for them when they inevitably close.

  2. Does anyone know what’s happening with the Albany Street Plaza greenmarket? When they first opened I asked the info booth guy when the market was coming and he didn’t even know there was going to be a green market.
