In front of Lucy's: A sight that gave me the yikes



Given the possible state of our local dive bars today, you have to wonder about great places in high-rent districts such as Lucy's on Avenue A.

So when I saw the dumpster there in front of Lucy's yesterday afternoon...I couldn't help but think the worst. And I'm not alone in this thinking...and she has floated retirement rumors in the past.

Not to worry, though! I took a stroll by the place after its usual 6 p.m. opening time yesterday...Lucy's is still alive and well, the neon bar signs out front as inviting as ever...

What the heck is going on in that photo? It looks like someone is jumping out of the dumpster.

Ha...I would have been jumping off something had Lucy's been closing...I happened to catch a bicyclist zipping by when I took the photo.

Oh I see it now. It was like an optical illusion that I couldn't properly focus on. I think having 2 eye doctors isn't enough, I might have to go to a third.
