This Week’s Highlights: Friday, January 14

Free Max Fish: 21 Years of Writing on the Wallwireless expands to Harlem thanks to a partnership between the state’s parks office and Columbia University, among other institutions. This week, it was announced that Riverbank State Park will soon be equipped with free, public WiFi. While you’re out there this summer, just keep an eye out for the occasional errant Frisbee.

The Bowery Hotel. John Varvatos. The New Museum. The transformation of the Bowery continues. Next up, the former Salvation Army at the corner of East Third Street slated to become a boutique hotel and restaurant.  Also on the Lower East Side…a reprieve. After 21 years of operation, downtown establishment Max Fish was to close at the end of this month with plans to relocate to Chrystie Street. That move was denied by the community board, however, and after some renegotiations with the landlord, Max Fish now has one more year to find a new location. Urban planning in song? The New York Times and The Power Broker scribe, Robert Caro, preview the musical about the legendary master builder, Robert Moses, based on Caro’s equally legendary book.
