Page Six Magazine says the Bowery calls to mind "an L.A. vibe"

Page Six Magazine never disappoints! And the now-a-quarterly (still free!) insert in the Post is back to highlight all the loathesome things in the neighborhood. Like in its look at "three hot hoods" yesterday. Hey, it's the Bowery!




"Once littered with punks and drunks, the Bowery (thanks to hotels Bowery and Cooper Square) now brims with lounge lizards and sun-kissed girls in bright rompers and frocks, calling to mind an L.A. vibe."

(This piece isn't online just yet...)

Bring back the punks & drunks

I did see a few drunks on the Bowery last night. Well, tipsy maybe. And they were both carrying $1,700 handbags and walking into the Bowery Hotel.

NYC needs a new Son of Sam. Anyone. Anyone.

I'm actually cool with the Bowery having an "LA vibe", whatever that is, if the Meatpacking District, Soho, Chelsea, etc. didn't all have the exact same vibe already.

Can't the rich take just a couple of neighborhoods for themselves, like the used to, and leave some parts of Manhattan for the rest of us?

there's nothing i hate more than sun-kissed girls in bright rompers and frocks.

@EV Grieve. I'm only guessing that they were $1,700 bags. Very easily could have been one of those cheapo $1,200 jobbies. And neither women was wearing a romper (bright or otherwise). Or looked sunkissed.
