••• The New York Times liked Paowalla, Floyd Cardoz’s new restaurant in Soho.

••• Tribeca artist Meredith Monk has a pet turtle named Neutron, and “Neutron, in fact, is just one among many of the reptilian participants in a substantial, and neglected, history of turtles in experimental music. For a few significant years in the 1960s, the Minimalist innovator La Monte Young and his collaborator and wife, the visual artist Marian Zazeela, kept as many as 14 in a giant makeshift aquarium in their own loft in Tribeca.” The New York Times has quite a bit more to say on the subject.

••• Commercial Observer‘s profile of real-estate developer Bill Brodsky of Tribeca Associates says that the hotel under construction at 143 Fulton will be Marriott’s Moxy brand. That name makes Arlo look good….

••• Motorcycle stolen on Duane and other thefts. —Tribeca Trib

••• Saw this too late for this morning’s Seen & Heard roundup, and it can’t wait till tomorrow.
