'End of Days' are here for Max Fish

[You never know when a cliched photo of the Max Fish toilet will come in handy]

Max Fish closes for good on the Lower East Side on Aug. 1, according to Gallerist.

And the Ludlow Street fixture, which is moving to Williamsburg, signed off with their final exhibition — titled "End of Days," which Ava Rollins and Yolande Whitcomb curated. (The show, featuring work by Craig Wetherby, Ricky Powell and FAILE, is only up through tonight.)

X Games at ESPN paid tribute to the Max Fish on Monday... noting how the bar was big with the skate crowd through the years...

Max Fish will all be leaving a neighborhood that now resembles the chaos of New Orleans' Bourbon Street on the weekends more than the downtown cool with which it once was associated.

I await the day their bathroom is recreated in the Met Museum as part of some show memorializing the late, great LES.

Checking this site is beginning to depress me. Let's change the city's name to Cleveland and be done with it.

The name of the blog should be changed to Cincinnati.

Despite its conservatism, Cincinnati is one of the few cities in the US that has not been converted into a glass and steel jungle. It's still an interesting place, architecturally.
And New York could do far worse than being Cleveland! Northeastern Ohio is the home of Pere Ubu, Devo, Pretenders, Nine Inch Nails, Dead Boys, Marilyn Manson, David Grohl, Glen Buxton, Gilby Clarke, Boz Scaggs, among others!
