An award-winning news site covering the East Village of NYC
I walk around these days and just feel depressed. So many vibrant and interesting businesses are gone, being replaced by boring office space or lux apartments that no one will ever see the inside of. The life is really being sucked out of the area.
9:56 AM: You are absolutely right. I feel like I live in a mall with a lot of bars, few services, or affordable restaurants. When you have to go at least two avenues over for a decent egg, bagel, cheese and can't find a cobbler it feels nothing like NYC.
I feel the same way. There are so few of the small, mom-and-pop, cozy, quirky establishments left that made the East Village what it was and made it so popular (unfortunately). They'll be calling us Murray Hill South soon. BYW there's still a shoemaker on 4th Ave & 13th Street and Little Poland at Second Avenue and 12th Street is still a great diner.
I still feel bad for the loss of those six great tall Honey Locust trees that were cut down and thrown out by the contractor and not to forget all those trees cut down at the East River Park. This City is so anti-nature it is incredible.
