Seen & Heard: The Copper Topper

••• The ICE NYC fitness studio at 93 Worth opens on January 18.

••• The penthouse at the Gerken Building (90 W. Broadway), seen in this recent article, has a copper-clad bulkhead.

90 WBroadway bulkhead••• Opening January 26 at Taymour Grahne Gallery: “You and Me, a solo exhibition of new work by the critically acclaimed New York-based artist Nicky Nodjoumi (b. 1942). Nodjoumi’s nuanced figurative paintings engage in political discourse with a satirical touch, layering the artist’s personal heritage and lived experiences into scenes that resonate beyond specific historical contexts or geographical boundaries. Combining historic references, surrealist abstraction, and social realist critique, Nodjoumi uses his practice to explore the intersection of his personal history with the politics of alienation and dislocation.”

10 Bond••• Press release: “The Manhattan Borough President’s office is accepting applications for membership on the Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board (SWAB) through Friday, Jan. 29, and will be welcoming all who live, work, or study in Manhattan and are interested in serving to attend an information session Monday, Jan. 11. […] Created by New York City’s 1989 recycling law, the Manhattan SWAB is a fifty-seat volunteer body dedicated to increasing recycling, reducing solid waste, and developing new waste management and sustainability proposals for Manhattan and New York City.” There’s no mention of an age minimum; just think how this will look on your tween’s résumé!
