ugh, this is just gut wrenching.....any business that's been operating in NYC for over 50 yrs should have some rights for godssake! can't we get some rent protection grandfathered in for the old time mom & pops already??you can't build these kind of places back, it takes decades to create the kind of rich patinas they offer... they are gutting the very heart and soul of this city and i am just so f*cking sick of it.
glamma, I have to think that a lot of what we enjoyed in Manhattan has moved to Brooklyn and Queens where rents are more sustainable and the neighborhoods are somewhat diverse. Obviously, not Park Slope or other yuppievilles. What I think is so distressing is that nobody was really prepared for the change, but if you think about it, most of these "mom and pop's" were founded in a relatively short era (maybe 75-80 years ago), and are simply being caught up in the changing tides.I guess Bloomturd figures that everyone can hop on a Shitibike, pedal over the Brooklyn Bridge and grab a danish from the other side. Thanks Mike, you scumbag.
Wrong on so many levels; I cannot comprehend how one city needs so many frozen yogurt and juice bars. Are they they new "dozen roses for ten bucks" operations?
it is only a matter of time until the outer boroughs are gutted as well, unless we can stop the hemorraging
