"A Greenwich Village McDonald’s on West Third Street that has been the site of at least three violent altercations — one as recently as Saturday night — is a haven for male hookers, drug dealers and scammers who use the 24/7 fast-food joint as a base of operations, frightened neighbors say." (New York Post)

Major disruption on E. 3rd St. btwn. C and D today. On the South side, demolition of the old town house continues and across the street on the North side, core drilling in preparation for construction continues. This doesn't seem to bode well for our quiet block.

That McDonald's on W. 3rd street sounds absolutely divine! Like 42nd Street in the '70s. I don't eat fast food but might stop by for a 3am salad to take in the action.
