Seen & Heard: Hudson River Park Has Reopened

••• Hudson River Park has completely reopened.

••• Judging from this listing on Eastern Consolidated’s website, we may be seeing some turnover in 105 Chambers/156 Church (the Cary Building), especially on the Church Street side. Six spaces are on the market, three of which currently have tenants: the little bodega (between Donna Bella Pizza and City Hall Wines & Spirits), Unique Shape Eyebrow Threading Salon, and Fast Broadway Shoe Repair. There’s a diagram that doesn’t include Tribeca Health & Fitness among the available spaces, but the listing mentions the “lower levels built out as gym.”

••• Warren between W. Broadway and Greenwich will be closed tonight and tomorrow night from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. for water-main work.

••• The next Tribeca Meet & Greet, organized by the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, is 6:30-9 p.m. on Thursday, November 9, at Elan Flowers (26 Grand). “If you have never attended a Tribeca Meet & Greet, now’s the time. We have been meeting in a different Tribeca restaurant or business about once a month. We’ve been able to exchange some ideas, do some networking and have a drink with the neighbors. Some people show up for the full evening, some just drop by to say hello. Frankly Wines at 66 West Broadway will kindly provide some beverages.”

••• Opening Nov. 8 at Soho Photo: “This month, the gallery is proud to present shows by 5 members and an ‘Off The Wall’ experience where the photos come off the wall and are bound between covers and worked into objects in this exhibit of works by gallery artists. Photography books of all sizes and styles sit next to objects never imagined for photography.” Below, a photo from “Encounters,” the show by Alexander Krohmer: “I started this series in summer 2006 during a two-month stay in Florence and continued it in my hometown Munich and in Berlin and other big cities. I randomly asked people of these cities for a portrait. It was surprising how much intimacy could be gained during the short photo sessions. I experimented with photographing people’s backs, which then became an inherent part of the project. By standing with their backs towards me, they had to give up some control. This somehow more vulnerable setting gave a glimpse of another aspect of their personality.”
