Seen & Heard: Progress at the New Northwest Tribeca Hotel

••• “This was at Best Market today,” emailed J. “Thought you would find it entertaining!” And how!

••• The demolition at 456 Greenwich—where a big hotel is in the works—is about to start. I miss the Chad-Erik EZ Park sign already.

456 Greenwich••• Spotted at the United Grocery & Deli at Hudson and Vestry.

lost roll of bills••• Looks like that funky shipping shop at 130 Church is moving out. Increasingly, this city just doesn’t seem to have space for businesses like it.

130 Church••• Two exhibits opening March at 10 Taymour Grahne Gallery: Upstairs is “Bricks, a solo exhibition of new thick oil paintings, watercolors, and sculptures by Brooklyn-based artist Nadia Ayari. […] Ayari uses her practice to explore the intersection between primary forms: the fig, branch and blood. Employing images of submission and isolation, her paintings are stilled in (or out of) time—relating conceptual narratives of love and captivity.” And downstairs: “Linea, a solo exhibition of new works by Brooklyn-based artist Abdolreza Aminlari in the lower level gallery space. This new body of work continues Aminlari’s explorations of thread as a medium. Repetitive and ritualistic, the work simultaneously references the uniformity of factory production and the tactility of domestic labor.” Below: Aminlari’s “Untitled” (2014).

••• On February 26, Soho Photo is the site of a Re-Artiste “Bohemian Night” recital by soprano Zoya Gramagin, tenor Mikhail Urusov, and pianist Marina Makarova. More info.
