Does any other city (or neighborhood) have the rapid turnover of commercial spaces like the EV?
Thank God! These are items I cannot find ANYWHERE!
How come there's no picture of a cup of tea on that sign?
Because TLC Tea is the name of the dude that owns the house? Or maybe they just didn't want to be redundant.
Anon 9:12. Not that I know of. I was just out in the Midwest. Omaha has some great cheap restaurants where you can drive to a farm in 20 minutes and then drive back to the restaurant. Cant get more farm fresh than that. My friends bought a beautiful house for $140k. That's where the action is. NYC has become overpriced and unsustainable. Smaller more affordable cities with realistic commercial rents are where the artistic and creative will open galleries, shops etc. There is a lot of this in OKC as well. Unless you are locked into an $800 RS 1br for life - why stay? The wonderful weather? The low taxes? The clean efficient subway? The increasing numbers of crazy homeless? the low prices for goods and services? The vacant storefronts that become homeless shelters? What's the point?
Pretty mavericky with the sign's on-purpose misspelling of "sandwich" in order to attract the area's covert avant-garde and anarchists.
This stretch of Second Street has become a car service rest stop area. They are double parked (it is a double wide street) and eating at Spiegel Restaurant which is generally open until 2AM. I guess someone is trying to tap into that cash flow.
