Seen & Heard: Greca Previews

••• Thanks to Recovering Tribecan for the heads-up that Judah Friedlander starts talking about Tribeca at around the 26-minute mark of his new Netflix special. It’s pretty amusing. Friedlander asks an audience member where he lives, and when the answer is Tribeca, he goes on a riff: “Tribeca is a very dangerous neighborhood. If you look at someone the wrong way on the streets of Tribeca, they might unfollow you on Instagram. Tribeca is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in New York City. Where else can you find hedge fund CEOs living right next door to venture capitalists?”

••• “I thoroughly enjoyed this brightly colored love note to an illegal parker in north Battery Park City today,” emailed L. “Thought you’d get a kick out of it as well!” It’s a fair assumption that I’ll enjoy any letter that starts out with “Dear asshole,” as long as it’s not addressed to me. (As for placard abusers in general, how illegal would it be to slap “LIAR” stickers on their windshields? Asking for a friend….)

••• From Greca restaurant, opening soon in Truffles Tribeca: “We look forward to hosting you in one of our friends and family events coming soon. Sign up on our website with your email address and we will be contacting you soon.”

••• Lucky for us, Blue Moon Fish will still be at the Saturday Tribeca Greenmarket.

••• From the Department of Social Services, via Community Board 1: “On Monday, January 22, the Department of Homeless Services will conduct its Homeless Outreach Population Estimate, an annual point-in-time count of New Yorkers sleeping unsheltered on the streets. The HOPE count is essential for us to best provide resources to this vulnerable population. We are calling on all New Yorkers to help us canvass parks, subways, and other public spaces to estimate the number of people who are living on the street on one of the coldest nights of the year.  Volunteers are needed from approximately 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. the night of the 22nd. Just one night of your time will help us collect critical information to help people move from the streets and into a safe, stable environment. Please visit nyc.gov/hope or CityShare to learn more and to register.”

••• The TV show “Succession” is shooting here yet again tomorrow, in the W. Broadway/White area. (That’s after shoots on Monday and Tuesday.) And the TV show “Bull” is in the upper Church Street area on Tuesday.
