Seen & Heard: Worth Street Reconstruction

••• When Community Board 1 sent out its revised January agendas on Jan. 9, there was no mention on the Tribeca Committee agenda of a presentation (presumably by the NYC DDC) about the upcoming reconstruction of Worth Street. But now it’s on the CB1 website. The meeting is tonight. I’ll be there so you’ll get a full report on Thursday, but if you live on Worth, you might want to come hear for yourself. The meeting is at 6 p.m., or whenever the committee members show up, at 49-51 Chambers, 7th floor; bring gin ID. UPDATE: Scratch that. CB1 neglected to update its online agenda. The presentation is delayed till February.

••• The NYPD 1st Precinct tweeted a clarification about the temporary complex going up at Canal and Varick for the All-Star Game: “NBA is hosting this event. Nike is a sponsor. Event will be Feb 13 to 16. Permits are through March 2 for breakdown.”

••• From Tamid: “We’re partnering with our downtown interfaith network friends on MLK Day in honor of the National Day of Service. We’ll join together to honor a vision of hope, peace, and equality and will make meals for the homeless. Please join us and invite a friend—it’s in partnership with Trinity Wall Street, Lower Manhattan Community Church, and Park 51. 10 a.m. to noon, Monday, January 19, at St. Paul’s Chapel (209 Broadway). RSVP:”

••• From Stacie Bloom: “The souvenir shop at 125 Church is sadly going out of business tomorrow [today]. The owner is the nicest man.” A shame: His merch, at least as seen from outside, didn’t take the low road like the Canal Street schlockmeisters. Plus, I often walk Howard by there in the afternoon, and I always liked catching him jogging in place.

The signature face workouts are designed to tighten and firm the muscles of the face, which increase the skin’s vitality and leave a more supple radiant finish. The final result leaves you event-ready, workouts can be done over your makeup & no one will suspect you just had a facial.”

••• Mulberry & Vine is jumping on the brodo bandwagon: “We’re rolling out bone broth tomorrow/Thursday. Tomorrow we’ll have the beef broth made with kombu and bonito. Thursday we’ll have beef and chicken.”

In these ambitious works, Kim returns to a subject and a medium she has previously explored; a pond, hosting the reflection of surrounding wood and sky, and a bit of the wood itself are depicted in spring, summer, fall, and winter.”
