Jeremiah of Vanishing New York fame ventured over to the Far West Village to get a look at the hyped new developments in the neighborhood (he also spotted the prefabulous Superior Ink), but mostly to see the glory that is Julian Schnabel's Palazzo Chupi. And wouldn't you know it...

Julian Schnabel, Mr. Chupi, on his way to the Tribeca Film Festival where his Lou Reed film, Berlin, is premiering.Also spotted: Richard Gere, handing out flyers.
