Welcome back, Zoltar! (Thanks to Steven, MP and Jason for the photos!)
For starters, this is NOT the same Zoltar that held forth outside Gem Spa on Second Avenue and St. Mark's for nearly seven years — 2012-2019. (Among other features, that Zoltar had a flute in his cummerbund.)
That Zoltar ended up outside a pizzeria in Bushwick, where bloggers probably don't post about him every few days. Sources on Ninth Street tell us that this Zoltar was important from the faraway land of New Jersey.
The new Ninth Street Zoltar is $1 for a fortune (aka words of wisdom).
We'll have more on this arrival in the days ahead... but one question was answered — the Ninth Street Zoltar will not be outside 24/7...
