The e-mail read, in part:
Have you seen what has to be the plug-ugliest building in the EV, 147 1st Avenue, NW corner of 9th Street?
It used to be a herb store ... and it might become a restaurant soon.
But what about the ugly floors above it? The ones that are boarded up and look more like an ex-prison than anything else?
The ones that make the building easily the ugliest in the EV?
Hmm, I don't know. Is this the ugliest building in the East Village?
