Great photography. I'm guessing that vacant lot is where Jardin del Paraiso now stands?

Why the photo of Ukrainian East Village Restaurant? It isn't closing, is it? That would not be good.

It's not closing... I like the neon (and the restaurant!) ... The photo is nothing more than an appreciation.
