The Day | Giuseppi Logan in the Limelight

The Times pens a piece about Giuseppi Logan’s comeback in which the jazzman reveals the reason he disappeared for decades. “My wife had me put in a mental institution,” he tells John Leland. “She said I was an addict.” On her East Village blog, Suzannah B. Troy addresses a commenter who said the profile should’ve delved deeper into Mr. Logan’s troubled past: “I believe he had more than 10 kids and one child had died. His 1st wife did not want him to play and compose music but have a mainstream job. His 2nd wife believed in his music but she left him when he went to jail.” Ms. Troy also posts footage of Giuseppi’s reunion with his son Jaee as well as other clips.

Now that Mr. Logan’s Kickstarter campaign is funded (and then some!), Jeremiah’s Vanishing points to another one: Karen Gehres has been filming at Astor Place Hairstylists for a year and wants to turn the footage into a documentary. “With so many NYC Institutions dropping like flies, due to skyrocketing rent, one barber shop remains,” goes the Kickstarter pitch. “Since 1939, Astor Barber has been cutting hair with pizzaz and is still one of NYC’s most loved institutions. Get your hair cut from cradle to grave…literally!”

Runnin’ Scared reports that local artist Legacy Russell is photographing East Village and Lower East Side residents in locations that are meaningful to them, and then hanging the poster-size prints in locations of their choosing.

MyFoxNY reports that Cardinal Timothy Dolan was in the East Village on Saturday to bless Easter food at the Church of Saint Stanislaus.

A judge has ruled that Brookfield Properties had the right to clear Zuccotti Park and that when Ronny Nunez, a protester accused of trespassing, was ordered out of the park, “he was not legally entitled to refuse,” according to City Room. Meanwhile, according to tweets from @OWSUnionSquare, a protester was detained but not arrested during last night’s closure of Union Square Park.

Curbed points to a prime 1,200 square-foot apartment at 7 Bond Street: “It’s certainly not cheap at $1,695,000 but the size, layout, and location are pretty fantastic.”

A release on Broadway World touts “When Half the Sphere Is Visible,” a new Horse Trade Theater Group production at The Red Room: “Can there be a perfect kiss? Will a wall of water burst a burden of guilt? Can a belt buckle baffle the TSA? An escapade forking in unexpected places, this genre-bending blend of storytelling explores the dichotomies we live with (and often choose to ignore). A collaborative effort between four playwrights, five directors and nine actors, when half the sphere is visible creates a greater narrative from four interwoven stories.”

Take solace: Jehangir Mehta’s kitchen at Graffiti is just as small as yours. What’s in it? He tells Gothamist, “Equipment wise, we have two rice cookers, two electric flattops, one electric convection oven, and…that’s it”
