Seen & Heard: Sneak Preview of Pier 17

••• From CB1: “The Howard Hughes Corporation, in collaboration with Community Board 1, invites the public to tour the redeveloped Pier 17 in the Seaport District. As capacity is limited, only those who RSVP will be permitted on the tour. The meeting location for this tour will be outside 19 Fulton Street. ID required at check in. Click HERE to RSVP, and enter the following password: PIER17NYC.” The two dates are April 19 at 10 a.m. and April 23 at 6 p.m.

••• “The Good Fight” TV show shoots tomorrow on Washington above Canal.

••• The 11-story building at 31 Desbrosses (southwest corner of Washington) is going up fast. (Drawing here of the finished building.) The question is, what will Ponte Equities develop next? The one-story garages on Greenwich between Desbrosses and Vestry? Or the small buildings at the southeast corner of Washington and Desbrosses?

••• From the Battery Park City Authority: “The BPCA today announced the launch of Raining Poetry in BPC, a temporary public art project that on rainy days will display excerpts of poetry on the paths, plazas, and sidewalks of Battery Park City. Portions of nine popular poems by luminaries such as United States Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy K. Smith, Langston Hughes, Sylvia Plath, and others are being stenciled on hard surfaces across the neighborhood this week, and will begin appearing for view with the next rainfall. These poems will be joined by those penned by local school children that first appeared last summer, and which will be reproduced as part of this initiative.”

••• Yay, another Starbucks. This one is on Lafayette between Grand and Howard.
