••• I hadn’t been to Brookfield Place in a while, so this is probably old news, but Le District has ice cream. Anyone try it yet? Also, Scoop looks ready to open, if it hasn’t already, and Drybar put up signage on its Brookfield Place store (it’s next to Babesta). And I peeked inside Amada, the restaurant next to Parm, and it doesn’t look anywhere near ready.

Le District ice creamDrybar••• The next Pen Parentis will be all about crime: “Three authors will read from new works on September 8: Ed Lin, Jack Miller, and Tim O’Mara, who have all distinguished themselves in writing various types of crime fiction, from literary, to poetic, to award-winning serialized gumshoe novels set in Brooklyn. After the readings there will be lively discussion on the writing life and how these authors balance a creative career with their active families. You don’t have to be a parent or a writer to enjoy this night of readings, mingling, and socializing over books. Books will be available for purchase if you want a signed copy by your favorite author, or bring your own. The readings are open to the public, admission is free, and Andaz Wall Street provides the wine and light snacks. RSVP is recommended at”

••• I really wish these garish food carts weren’t allowed on the park side of Broadway.
