    Located on the ground level of the new Time Warner Center at 10 Columbus Circle, the 950 square foot store will stock both men's and women's Calvin Klein branded underwear, concentrating on fashion forward product.

    As it pulls out of its sponsorship of the U.S. Open, Lincoln hopes to get a bigger bang for its bucks by sponsoring the posh lobby of Time Warner Center.

    Lincoln is installing its cars in the spacious atrium and lobby of the Time Warner building, one of the city's newest luxury destinations, which is expected to draw 16 million visitors annually.

    Concierges in elegant costumes will invite visitors to climb inside the vehicles to try out the sound systems or to book a test drive nearby.

    Blaring on 26 high-tech video screens spread around the glitzy lobby, pitches will remind visitors about Lincoln Mercury's products and involvement in promoting culture.

    Lincoln decided to invest in a novel New York promotion in order to maintain a high profile here after it pulls out of the U.S. Open — which it has sponsored for five years — at the end of this summer's matches.

    Lincoln signed a three-year pact with the building's operators, Related Cos., to control five strategic spots year-round in the retail enclave of luxury brands, starting Oct. 1.

    Although Lincoln won't reveal the cost of becoming the building's official luxury car, it's said to be much cheaper than the automaker's multimillion-dollar sponsorship of the U.S. Open.

    The cars will also be surrounded by trappings of upscale living.

    The art in the lobby of The Shops at Columbus Circle. 3 October 2004. Anybody remembers the name of the artist?

    On the bottom of the picture is a part of the Lincoln installation you can read in the previous post. No cars yet though.

    KUNZ TO SET NEW CAF� AT TW BLDG.

    By STEVE CUOZZO

    THE Time Warner Center galleria, a favorite put-down target of Manhattan elitists, grows more bustling by the month. Now comes word from Related Cos. honcho Kenneth Himmel that superchef Gray Kunz will soon open a 70-seat bar and cafe in the midst of the third-floor public space overlooking the great hall.

    Kunz's Cafe Gray, of course, is alreading packing 'em in to the tune of nearly $40,000 a day. But an informal cafe is just what the building needs. Until now, the only eating options have been restaurants ranging from expensive to ultra-expensive.

    "We have a lot more coming in," said Himmel, who conceived the Columbus Circle project's shopping and dining complex. He said Thomas Keller's long-awaited Boucheron Bakery will likely open in early May on the third floor and Charlie Trotter will start construction soon on his own third-floor restaurant.

    Meanwhile, exactly what's going on at Jean-Georges Vongerichten's V Steakhouse remains something of a puzzle. As The Post reported last week, its two sets of partners have bickered over its performance.

    Following months of buzz that V's days were numbered, all parties sounded eager to say business had picked up and things were back on track. But the upbeat comments left some unanswered questions.

    V has two sets of partners: Related Cos. chiefs Stephen Ross and Himmel and Apollo Realty principal William Mack as individual investors; and Vongerichten and his financial partner Phil Suarez. The overall partnership operates V under a lease from Related Cos.

    "We have very complicated arrangements," Himmel said in an understatement. "A complicated lease, a complicated joint venture, and a complicated management agreement."

    Himmel and Ross made it sound as if Vongerichten and Suarez had agreed to make the menu more like a "traditional" steakhouse's, while Vongerichten, and Suarez seemed to say they had already made as many changes as they were going to make.

    I haven't been to any of the spendy restaurants upstairs but I do know the Whole Foods food court in the basement is very popular with the local work crowd.

    I think there's a lot of NYers, especially in the restaurants and Whole Foods. These places do $1mil plus per month in business, and the Whole Foods revs must be insane.

    Let me illustrate how popular. On Friday before the snowstorm I went to buy some tomatoes and other fruit. I ended up leaving my shopping cart and retreating. The line was zigzagging among the deli section like a snake - hundreds of people - I tried to find the end but failed.

    So I went to their liquor section, got some wine and left. By the way - the liquor section is open on Saturdays and Sundays, unlike most of other liquor shops in the city.

    Actually, most liquor stores I see are open on Sundays now. I think the blue laws were changed a few months ago. First, stores could only be open six days a week, the days being of the owner's choosing. Shortly after, they were allowed to be open all seven days.

    I remember something about the state trying to sue Whole Foods because the entrance to their liquor store was accessible only through the main store and not through an outside door.

    You're not the only one to abandon your cart at Whole Foods, Edward. I've done it a few times, myself.

    Smile Oxymoron?

    Is it just me, or is 0 floor a kind of oxymoron?

    In Europe, Latin America and elsewhere, the 0 floor is the ground floor, what is referred to as the first floor in the United States. The next floor up would be called the first floor, and so on and so forth.

    That has to be a Botero. It's all in the wierdly proportioned body parts.

    I like the place. It's a decent enough step in the right direction - New York should have competitive and indeed extraordinary shops of every stripe. If the city prospers, maybe we will see a makeover of the lackluster lower stories' facade in the next decade.

    Oh, and the crowds at Whole Foods are indeed impressive. Very good! May the lines grow longer and finally merge with the one in front of the Times Square TKTS booth.

    Yes, I understand..... I think it's quite comical, oxymoronic. A zero floor!
