Seen & Heard: Moving Date for Steven Alan Home Shop

••• You know how Trinity Wall Street has been asking the community to weigh in on its plan for a big new building at 68-74 Trinity Place? Now they’re “holding a Kid’s Charrette on May 31 at 10:15 a.m. at St. Paul’s Chapel and all children 12 and under are invited to attend. This is a special, kids-only charrette and they are being asked to help prioritize what will go into the new building at 68-74 Trinity Place. The process will be kid-friendly and fun. Pelli & Pelli architects will be on hand to help with the process.”

••• I missed another single-family mansion currently on the market (for $15 million): 156 Reade.

••• After a few postponements, Steven Alan Home Shop is moving out (and to Williamsburg) on June 24.

••• More of 11 N. Moore is visible…. Is that a recessed terrace on the top floor? UPDATE: Thanks to lowphat for pointing out that one of the floor plans for the penthouse includes a loggia along N. Moore.

319 Broadway••• Here’s part of that 70 Lafayette storefront some of us are excited about. It looks great—but can it be worth the effort? That’s not exactly the fanciest part of the neighborhood.

70 Lafayette••• “I lived on the 3rd floor for 10 years,” commented Jane Ellen on last week’s Where in Tribeca…? about 27 Desbrosses. “I put the one buzzer type doorbell in in 1985! For years I was the only one except the super who had a doorbell!” Every time I’m at that corner, I worry about that building and the ones to the south on Washington. (433, 435, and 437 Washington.) If you ever see the big drill around there, please let me know.

27 Desbrosses••• Press release: “Throughout the month of June, the Manhattan Borough President’s office will host Fabulous Fiber Art, an exhibit of prize-winning quilts by members of Manhattan’s own Empire Quilters Guild. Ranging from exquisite examples of traditional quilts to those featuring the geometric Modern Style to several expressions of raucous humor, these creations exhibit the imagination, technique and creativity of today’s practicing fiber artists. The Manhattan Borough President’s gallery is open to the public Monday to Friday10 am to 5 pm.” It’s on the 19th floor of the Municipal Building, a.k.a. 1 Centre St., and admission is free.

••• Alif Deli on Church got closed by the Health Department.

Alif Deli••• There are flyers from Cortlandt Alley to W. Broadway for “Violet” shooting on Thursday—that’s the pseudonym for the TV show “A.K.A. Jessica Jones,” from Marvel for Netflix.

••• A reader directed me to the huge horse sculpture by Moses Tuki in the New York Academy of Art‘s MFA thesis exhibition, open through May 30, and it certainly is impressive (as is the archer behind it). Tribecans might also enjoy Bernard Garcia’s painting of 56 Leonard….
