Today in looking at David Schwimmer's in-progress mansion

The construction crew at David Schwimmer's new place at 331 E. Sixth St. is making a lot of progress, at least based on this aerial shot by EV Grieve reader weigone... this photo is from Wednesday...


...and from Feb. 1 ...


Some neighbors, who say they have put up with horrendous noise from the site in recent weeks, are curious about the box-like structure in the top photo — elevator shaft? Indoor BBQ pit? Vault? Panic room?

I'm thinking personal crematory oven, a la "Devil in the White City"...

I'm pretty sure that it's going to be an elevator shaft. I remember seeing a proposed diagram somewhere.

It's the portal from hell through which he'll arrive.

This reminds me of the time when Ross moved into apartment 3B, where Ugly Naked Guy used to live, and didn't want to contribute $100 to Howard the handyman's retirement party, even though Stanford Blatch, I mean Willie Garson, the president of the tenants' committee, asked him nicely, so Ross throws his own lame par-tay with nametags and sad potato chips and no one attends, and even Phoebe goes to Howard's party and she doesn't even live in the building! Then Ross crashes Howard's party and eats Howard's cake before it's even been cut. None of your neighbors like you, Ross, I mean David!

331 E. 6th was my old landlord's building, come to think of it. Used to shuffle down to the basement cash in hand...

And two doors down from the synagogue which was once the Lutheran Church which organized the General Slocum outing which led to one of the fastest (and saddest) changes in the neighborhood ever.

I used to just blame "Friends" in a general sort of way for killing the idea of New York. Now, clearly, it's been an organized campaign from the start...

So true, Ivan.

That's where he'll stuff the remains of the old building!

That's where he'll keep his native LA soil, so he can return to it every night to rejuvenate himself before feasting on the flesh pf the EV.

EV Grieve said...

Heh. Excellent responses!

I think that Schwimmer should back off, realize that he has sinned, and give the land to Goggla immediately.

let's start a petition demanding that he cough over the property.

Seriously, how low can one stoop in this world.

I suspect that appealing to David Schwimmer's sense of shame might be an uphill battle...
