... and last night was the opening of "When Jackie Met Ethyl," a new exhibit at the Howl! Happening space on East First Street near the Bowery. Per Howl!:

This exhibition considers the cultural and historical impact of Jackie Curtis (1947-1985) and Ethyl Eichelberger (1945-1990) two of the most influential figures from the East Village’s heyday as a cauldron of transgressive gender-twisting performance.

Here are a few photos from the opening via EVG contributor Stacie Joy...

I what does Howl! happening think of Icon Realty, Croman and Tower Brokerage?
I wonder waht they think of luxury housing, high end nightlife, high end fashion, people living without gas, landlord harrassment, etc..?

One of the reasons that the East Village has folded is because journalism is controlled by the real estate industry!
