Seen & Heard: Flood wall at the fields

GETTING READY FOR THE FLOOD
N. caught sight of the flood wall at the fields, which is under construction and to be finished by fall.

ONE WHITE OPENS NEXT THURSDAY
After a couple years of anticipation, One White Street, the vertical restaurant helmed by chef Austin Johnson and master sommelier Dustin Wilson, opens Thursday, August 5, with dinner. The ground floor and outdoor space are FCFS; the upstairs two floors are a six-course tasting meal. Reservations are here. I just barely snagged one in time for the 5th; I hope I get to sit under that Gordon Matta-Clark photo of Day’s End…

CB2 REJECTS SOHO/NOHO REZONING
