Seen & Heard: Opening Forecast for Philly Pretzel Factory

••• From Manhattan Youth: “In answer to the needs of youth and families in the wake of the recent loss of Imogen Roche, we are fortunate to work with A Caring Hand, an organization dedicated to help bereaved children and families cope, connect and continue to remember. Two separate sessions will be held simultaneously at the Downtown Community Center on Thursday September 13th – One for Parents and One for Youth.” RSVP via the links.

••• A press release for Philly Pretzel Factory, coming to 86 Chambers, will be ready to open in “a couple of weeks.”

••• A show by Il Lee is always cause for celebration: The 90s opens tomorrow, September 13, at Art Projects International. “Focusing on works by Il Lee from the 1990s, this exhibition brings together select breakthrough black ballpoint ink on paper works that first introduced the energetic, exhilarating mark-making which remains characteristic of his later signature works. To accompany the exhibition, a fully-illustrated brochure with an essay by Erik Bakke will be published.”

••• I’m an avowed fan of 565 Broome, but I do think it’s a real shame that the towers had to have those connecting canopies.

••• Never noticed this sign before….
