Thanks for the shout-out on Curbed, brother. My "click traffic" has gone through the proverbial roof.

heard on the street today:

Some old rail thin aged hipster walking out of the Christodora with his mom, er wife, guy looked like Pat Croce former Sixers owner blabbing (in a clearly forced NY accent) "Are you F-ing kiddin me? I lived here 30 f-in years adn you know the neighborhood better than me?"

Why does everyone in the East Village seem to have to qualify their East Village chops? I think its rather pathetic.

my favorite is Dick Manitoba and his (admittedly still hot wife/gf) riding around on his mountain bike looking like extras from the Sopranos. Dick, seriously, buy a house on the Island already. Its ok to leave the East Village guy!
