We're running with the Subway signs of the night

In the rain and darkness of night, workers installed the Subway sign that arrived earlier this afternoon here at 108 First Ave.

There are now three Subways in an 11 block radius on First Avenue.

108 First Avenue (btwn 7th and 6th), 227 First Ave (btwn 13th and 14th) and 317 First Avenue (btwn 18th and 19th).

Track their invasion at Subway's nifty neighborhood destroyer.

Inter-video was a great video store, with a great staff.
Rented videos, and then dvd's, from them for many years.
Seeing the space convert to a Subway is the ultimate debasement.
And I doubt all these Subway stores will last long. The proliferation is too fast and too concentrated in one area.
We'll see if it's still here a year from now.

If we're gonna be invaded like this I wish there was at least some diversity. Why can't we get some *other* fast food at least instead of the same old shit all the time. How about a Chick-Fila up in here, or maybe a Panda Express for some ethnic diversity. Tired of sniffing white bread all the time.

Subway stores are probably the easiest to startup though and so they will continue to spread like bacteria. For decades though we've had to put up with the McD's corporation putting up stores everywhere you look so I guess this is just a case of meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Different odor but same old crapola.
