In the News: Man Attacked at Tribeca Deli

••• Did you see the folks camping out on Broadway yesterday? From Coolhunting: “Artists Laurent Boijeot and Sebastien Renauld, together boijeot.renauld, work in ‘actions,’ and their latest is a one month migration through the length of Manhattan, via Broadway. Having started in Harlem and unhurriedly making their way down, the French duo are inhabiting New York City’s public thoroughfare with the wooden tables, chairs and bed they’ve designed. The artists, together with partner Mélanie Heresbach, sell furniture but prefer you download the plans at no cost. […] In between moving their encampment, the trio rolls cigarettes, shares coffee in cups made by Renauld’s mother, and chats with passersby.” I was tempted to let my pug, Howard, awaken them early this morning, but I figured they’d be roused soon enough by the noisy set-up of City Hall Greenmarket.

••• “Half a dozen men attacked, cut and robbed a B.M.C.C. student last week, making off with $2,000 worth of his stuff.” It was 9:45 p.m on Tuesday, and the gang followed the victim from the street to the Corner Gourmet deli, where they attacked him. The victim said he saw a gun at one point and was cut with a knife when he followed one of the perps to the 7-Eleven. —Downtown Express

••• The iPic cinema at the Seaport District is shooting for a June 2016 opening. It “will have eight auditoriums, each holding between 43 and 143 seats which patrons can reserve online before heading to the movie. Moviegoers can grab food and drinks, then head to their seats. Those with with a ‘premium plus’ ticket can eat and imbibe with waiter service. Those ‘premium’ seats are also a bit more comfy—they’re full-leg reclining chairs, complete with pillows and blankets.” I’ll pass on the blanket, thanks. Tickets are $14-$28. One more thing: “The theater will also have a separate, dine-in restaurant, tentatively called the Tuck Room.” —DNAinfo
