In an interview with Gothamist today, our friend David Cross says that he's leaving the neighborhood behind for Brooklyn... He specifically mentions 7-Eleven, IHOP and the various Subway sandwich shops as helping hasten his exit ... "It's mildly heartbreaking. It's just becoming more and more like a mall. I might as well be in St. Louis. It's very, very quickly, rapidly losing a lot of its character."
We hope that he still stops by here to visit, especially when people start badmouthing UCBeast and cargo shorts again.
Anyway, the East Village stuff is one small part an interview where he talks about the upcoming season of "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret." (Begins Jan. 6 on IFC! Woo!)
