April 21



Thanks to Simon Dumenco for sharing these photos today from St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue... as he correctly notes: "It’s Easter Sunday, so it’s time for the traditional sacrificing of the Christmas trees."

Have to make room in the apartment for all the eggs...

Jesus falls on 3rd Street and other Good Friday scenes


[Photo on 3rd Street by EVG reader David]

Here today on Third Street between Avenue B and Avenue C, parishioners from Most Holy Redeemer/Nativity Parish and St. Mary Grand took part in the "Way of the Cross" procession, a Good Friday tradition that marks the last stage of the journey that Jesus walked in his earthly life.

EVG correspondent Stacie Joy shared these photos... this year, the church officials mic'd the cross so you could hear the pounding of the "nails."

[Updated] Easter at the makeshift altar on East 12th Street



A look today at the makeshift altar on the East 12th Street plywood …

Blockbusters: ('Alleged') 'Bearial Shroud' discovered on East Second Street

This, of course, was the somber scene on East Second Street between Avenue B and Avenue C last Sunday morning... Easter Sunday morning...



And now, there are claims, thus far unsubstantiated, on the very same fence, that ... well, see for yourself...





A neighbor, who asked not be named, said that archaeologists excavated the only known JoBear la Stuffing-era burial shroud in the East Village.

What's more, the remains of the bear wrapped in the shroud are said to hold DNA evidence of a picnic basket. Carbon-dating studies suggested the shroud was made between A.D. 2007 and 2009.

However, until researchers can conduct more, uh, research, the use of "alleged" will accompany the description to help temper expectations and prevent the block from becoming a tourist trap for various pilgrim types.
