Seen & Heard: No Loft Tour This Year

••• There’s no Inside Tribeca Loft Tour this year. From the Friends of Duane Park website: “After much consideration, we decided earlier this year to take a year off from doing the Tour this year. We’ll be hosting some different kinds of neighborhood events this fall instead, and will keep you posted as to what is going on!  Hope to see you soon.” I know it’s a bear to organize, but I do hope it comes back next year.

••• The big-ass cat at 45 Warren is making a play to go viral. That hashtag could cause confusion, though….
