RIP David Simon

Several readers have pointed out a small memorial on the SW corner of Second Avenue and 11th Street for David Simon, a familiar presence here who recently passed away.
The Rev. Anne Sawyer at the adjacent St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery told us that she had a fond memory of hosting a 70th birthday party for David on the church property last year. "He asked if we could have a BBQ, so we did," she said, noting that she didn't have any other details on this passing at the moment. 

"I would be happy to host a celebration of life or memorial for anyone who would like to gather," she said.

Thanks to Steven for the photos!
