Seen & Heard: Retail coming alive

N. caught some action on Greenwich: work underway at Greenwich St. Jewelers (they are aiming for an early May opening); drumming up biz at Mayweather Boxing; and a new Botox place in the former Reade Street Prep annex. (Funny how the word “plump” has evolved when it comes to women and body image…) More TK on those…

Tribecans April Kornreich and Mignonne Gavigan, who own the jewelry brand also titled Mignonne Gavigan, are hosting a Mother’s Day bazaar in their office on Tuesday, May 3, with a collection of female-owned, female-run brands.

S. caught sight of this Twitter post from the Department of Sanitation of a trash can on Duane and Hudson. Commenters lashed out a Sanitation, but I have to agree with the department: this is clearly from a commercial establishment somewhere nearby and they should get rid of their own trash. In fact, I believe this is a repeat offender: I’ve noticed the same stalks in the trash cans in Duane Park…

A magic theater company — Flavors of Magic — is now using the Flea Theater for a monthly variety show with different magicians each month. The next show is Wednesday, May 4, at 7p. This show will include Devonte, a mind reader who won first place at the famous Showtime at the Apollo; Eric Q, an award-winning magician from Shanghai; and Omar Olusion, New York City’s “Busiest Mobile Magician.” Info and tickets here.

  1. Funny this should appear…

    I have noticed that, for years, the stretch of Church Street (east side) from Chambers to Duane Street hosts a littered sidewalk. Some junk appears to be commercial waste; others, personal or residential.

    I marvel at the real estate values in this vicinity that I have sometimes thought of as “Trashy Tribeca.” (And, yes, thanks to some sewer snafu, the stretch from Park Place past Reade Street often smells better with a mask on!)

    Don’t even start on the condition of the sloped, broken and otherwise torturous sidewalks themselves. Can’t we have better streets than this? Shame indeed!
