Seen & Heard: Halloween Events for Kids in Tribeca and Battery Park City

••• The Washington Market Park Halloween parade and party is Sunday, Oct. 26, 1-3 p.m.: “Inside the park, Friends volunteers run a dozen free events, from penny-in-a-haystack to a bone dig in the sandbox, and a hay circle on the lawn.” More info here. And from noon to 3 p.m. on the same day, “Kids and families are invited to scare up some fun at the Brookfield Place Halloween Party, a free afternoon bash that will include a costume runway, face painting, interactive activities, live performances, and trick or treating at Hudson Eats.” More info here.

••• 15 Renwick is going up crazy fast. Note the section of curtain wall in the second photo. (Renderings of the finished building are here.)

••• More of the westernmost Beekman window of the Beekman Hotel has been revealed. I was under the impression this is Tom Colicchio’s restaurant, but a reader said he/she thought it was the sales office for the condos. Either way, it’s interesting—and I do so very hope that the conversion of 5 Beekman doesn’t affect the ghost sign across Theater Alley. I bet kids today don’t even know what a photoplay is!

The event, featuring Erdinger Weissbräu and Sixpoint Brewery, will showcase food and beer from twelve different Stone Street restaurants, live Bavarian music and on-site brewing demonstrations from Brooklyn home-brew shop, Bitter & Esters.” It’s from noon to 11 p.m.
