I stood outside one of the windows on the East Seventh Street side of the former Love Saves the Day store. I wish I could describe the noise coming from the inside.
It was like hundreds of tiles were being smashed...it almost sounded frenzied, as if someone handed rowdy teens a few cases of Sparks and some sledgehammers and said, "you won't get into trouble."
Anyway, as Jeremiah reported, the space will become the neighborhood's 300th ramen joint. Not much left inside.
Still not used to seeing this space so, well, empty.
