Meanwhile, at the East Village IHOP...


4:15 a.m. Sunday. Per Tenacious C, who took the photo: "I wish it was staged."

The next day back home in the burbs, "Dude, we totally got so fucked up in the city last night. We were so drunk we fell asleep in that cool IHOP in the city. DUDE!!!!"

I cannot believe I am looking at an East Village scene. When I moved here a decade ago I would not have believed that things could turn out like this.

Impressive work. Sort of Henri Cartier-Bresson-ish with color.

So telling. Both of IHOP and what the East Village has become.

Or not.

Dude, let's get outta here and go next door to 7-Eleven. This place is for tourists.

The Bro Patrol in action. Give those boys an 8-ball! Now!

Funny, but they're actually smarter than most of them...who stumble around screaming and puking and passing out on the street. Going to ihop is a slightly more responsible choice.

I'm not making fun of these guys. I was younger once, and did stupid shit like fall asleep in public. But I can't recall a time when EVERYONE with me also passed out at the same time.

the first rule of IHOP club is: no sleeping at the table at IHOP club

Looks like some cranky old-time East Villager spiked the syrup with cyanide...

hilarious to me that bums sleeping on city streets lying in their own excrement is cool to you all but a few kids passing out at IHOP is an assault on your senses. Reality check please.

For real. It's certainly lame that we have an IHOP on 14th. Maybe it's lame that they chose to eat there (what else was open?). It's pretty dumb to sleep with your phone lying out on the table. But that they fell asleep, who gives a shit? I find it amusing that they're all passed out but to think this photo defines the decline of the neighborhood is just about the dumbest thing I've ever read.

Cargo shorts and flip-flops and popped collar, oh, my. Toto, I don't think we're in the EV or NYC anymore.
