Seen & Heard: Tetsu Finally Revealed

••• I hadn’t realized people were making movie-like videos to sell specific real estate properties. Besides the one below for 217-219 W. Broadway, Mikey Pozarik Studio has ones for 416 Washington and 34 Leonard (as well as others outside the neighborhood). They’re fascinating evocations of the Tribeca Dream.

••• “The Mudd Club Rummage Sale to benefit the Bowery Mission will take place on Monday, June 12, at the Roxy Hotel. Companies that have donated include Lela Rose, Diane Von Furstenberg, Tadashi Shoji, Jill Stuart, Chrome Hearts, Eddie Borgo, WeSC, Botkier, Maiyet, Vince, DKNY, Michael Kors, Aesop, Thierry Lasry, and many others. Special pieces have been donated by Debbie Harry, David Byrne, Alba Clemente, photographers Booby Grossman, William Coupon, and Bob Gruen to name a few. It is being curated by Maripol—the stylist who crafted the looks of Madonna, Debbie Harry, and Grace Jones among others. The event on June 12 is a preview party with food, cocktails and a special performance by Lizzi Bougatsos of Gang Gang Dance. Tickets are $250. The event is extended on June 13 and 14 for those who can’t attend the preview party (admission is $10).”

••• Tetsu restaurant at 78 Leonard has come out from under the plywood. Maybe they’ll paint the columns to match…?

••• The rooftop bar at the Hugo hotel is showing free movies on Monday nights at sunset. The lineup is here.

••• I was walking through Zuccotti Park when I noticed this vestigial sign for Temple Street, which used to run between Liberty and Thames. Forgotten New York has more on it.

••• From Pen Parentis: “Internationally bestselling romance novelist Jennifer Probst and literary sensation Marcy Dermansky are enthusiastically joined by Gint Aras, finalist for the Chicago Tribune Novel Prize, in from Chicago! The conversations will fly. At 7 p.m. on Tuesday June 13th, we will discuss ‘Writing About Love.’ Andaz Wall Street hosts. 75 Wall Street. An RSVP is highly recommended. Not kidding. Get your seats early. Limited tickets available.”

  1. Interesting that the models in the video are normal looking, possibly “ethnic” people. How long has it been since you’ve seen a relatively short, dark haired woman in any form of advertising.
