Bob Arihood has the troubling story:
"[W]e regrettably have to report that according to Ray at 10PM tonight the managing agent of his building--accompanied by her bodyguard-- informed him that he has until Friday to pay the 2 months rent that he owes . The agent noted that the next time she comes to the store she will have a chain and padlocks to close the store."
This can't happen. Per The Villager, his rent is $4,000 a month... Ray is 77 and has been here on Avenue A near Seventh Street since 1974.
