Good morning, East Village.

According to The Times, Julian Schnabel wasn’t the only boldface name at his daughter Lola’s opening at The Hole last week. Courtney Love, Francesco Clemente, Sandro Chia, Salman Rushdie and John Ahearn also showed up. As The Local reported last week, some of Ms. Schnabel’s paintings were first shown during The Hole’s whirlwind tour of Miami earlier this month.

DNA Info chats with Eileen Johnson, the director of Little Missionary’s Day Nursery on St. Mark’s Place (one of the oldest nurseries in the city) and the author of “The Children’s Emotional Bill of Rights.” The new book is based on her philosophy that “children need to be respected. Their boundaries need to be respected.”

Crains reports that 255 East Houston Street, near Suffolk Street, is on the market and could go for between $250 and $300 per square foot, depending on whether the buyer wants to build a condo or rental.

EV Grieve reports that 145 Avenue C has sold for $9.7 million.

The St. Mark’s Bookshop announces that on Jan. 3, Patti Smith will read from a reprinting of her memoir “Woolgathering!”

According to Billboard, the music site Pitchfork has postponed the “Forms” festival it had planned to throw with Bowery Presents.

Veselka Bowery’s chef Michael Sullivan shows DNA Info how he likes to make his latkes.

And Gothamist opines that Misoya’s ramen is a “greasy mess.” That said, “it’s five minutes away from Ippudo, and line-free.”
