Seen & Heard: Another Beauty Store at the World Trade Center

••• South Korean beauty brand Innisfree is opening in the World Trade Center mall, notes the reader known as Hudson River. It’s between the Tumi and Invite stores. It’ll be the company’s third New York City location.

••• I posted the answers to Part 6 and Part 7 of the Dead Restaurants quiz. The restaurants you didn’t guess: Silver Lining, Le Restaurant (at All Good Things), Los Americanos, Vinovino, Industria Argentina, and Nam.

••• “Just now I saw a fancy sign being stenciled in a window at 17 Jay Street,” reports Jane. “It reads (something like) ‘Sunday Night Appliance Sales and Service’—but something about the golden italic signage, and the location on Jay, bears a tinge of irony… I do wonder what it will be.” Sounds like either a film shoot or a creative agency.

••• Five new solo shows have opened at Soho Photo, including On the Road: Structures by John Custodio. “Once or twice a year I take to the road on long trips across the country, looking for interesting landscapes to photograph. In my travels I’ve noticed and photographed what, for want of a better term, could be called structures—lone buildings, towers, monuments, objects, remains of dwellings—isolated within the landscape. Some are merely functional, some are commemorative, and some are surviving remnants of what once was, but they all serve as a fascinating counterpoint to the wider expanse around them.” Below: “Alien Research Center, Crystal Springs, Nevada.”

••• “Paul Georges Museum (non profit) opening during 2019 at 85 Walker Street PH (4th and 5th floors) by appointment only,” commented Yvette Blumenfeld Georges Deeton. “Also LGBF=Lisette Blumenfeld Georges Foundation (non profit) to occupy 4500 square feet together opening 2019 by appointment only. or for info or inquiry.”
