Seen & Heard: New Magazine Store

••• Haven’t checked in on the building known as Franklin Place in a while. The curtain wall is attractive—amazing what a bit of texture can achieve (vs. a flat plane of glass).

Franklin Place••• On Dec. 17, Ed Burns’s “Public Morals” will be shooting at Estancia 460.

••• Bravo sitcom “Odd Mom Out” is shooting around west Soho today. It stars “celebrated fashionista and author Jill Kargman. The show, based not-so-loosely on her own life, takes viewers inside the world of wealthy momzillas.”

••• Congratulations to Dance with Miss Rachel, which is opening a second studio—it’s right next door at 100 Reade.

••• Babesta has a new issue of its Babesta Beat out. In this case the “Beat” is very Beat Generation.

••• The Iconic Magazines store and café is now open on Canal, just west of W. Broadway.

Iconic Canal••• Press release: “Project Gravitas, the socially-conscious online fashion brand that aims to give every woman a confident sense of self, launches its first major pop-up shop—a Holiday Styling Bar at 1350 Schermerhorn Building on Fulton Street. In addition to Project Gravitas’ own garments—luxury dresses, skirts and cruelty-free leather jackets—they will sell accessories from other Made in NY brands, including Seasonal Whispers, Grayling, Ann Hand and Abby May.”

••• From Exceed Physical Culture: “On Friday, December 12 and 19, we will be partnering with Rock of Ages, the Broadway musical, to host our 1pm class with Marianna and cast members from the show. Everyone who comes to class will be entered into a raffle to win two tickets to the show. We will have an 80’s playlist for the class and everyone is welcomed/encouraged to dress up in 80s attire.”

••• The former Canvas store at Lafayette and Broome is going to be a Velcro pop-up.
