Trickle down economics in action on Fourth Street

What follows is a dispatch from Bob Arihood....

It seems that shortly after 3 pm Thursday afternoon , two elderly female recyclers had some differences at the Key Food recycling facility on 4th st.. A recycling facility known for contentous recyclers . The stronger of the two females tossed the frail appearing , older female to the asphalt . Perhaps there was also an attempt to throw a bucket of something on the female who was thrown down . One can see a female demonstrating to a police officer such an act .

Police took the one female into custody , cuffing her and hauling her off to the 9th precinct . The other female was taken to hospital by ambulance .

2 hours later the recycling facility was closed . Several disappointed recyclers were seen passing the facility with the usual stuffed clear plastic bags full of recyclables . Other recyclers were seen in the area busily collecting more of the discarded East Village wealth that had trickled down to the street .

Two side-by-side townhouses on East Fourth Street await your renovation

There's a new listing for two townhouses at 326-328 E. Fourth St. between Avenue C and Avenue D... 12 bedrooms in the two homes... and both buildings are going for $4.6 million... According to the listing:

Extraordinary Opportunity. Two side by side townhouses that have 46 feet of street frontage and a 46 foot by 50 foot rear garden await your vision, dreams and renovation. Extensive original details throughout the townhouses. These properties will be delivered vacant, are currently over 7,000 square feet and come with an additional 10,000 square feet of air rights. Beautifully located across community gardens and on a charming block. This could also be a development site or for institutional use.

So, original details aside, someone will buy these to develop some high-end housing for that 10,000 square feet of air rights... and what about the current tenants...?

Also on this month's CB3 docket: Evolution

We continue to look over this month's massive CB3 SLA & DCA Licensing Committee agenda for Monday.

Of interest (at least to me, Jeremiah and Hunter-Gatherer perhaps!)

The new Evolution!

Hunter-Gatherer was told the following about the new Evolution this past June:

As I queried the construction worker regarding the future tenant he said, “evolution”.

“Really”, I said, “what’s the concept”?

“Flair”, he replied, “flipping bottles, fire tricks…you know, bringing a Las Vegas style bar to New York”.

Fine, fine — I'm there opening night! But according to the transfer: Evolution, 68 2nd Ave (alt/op/renovations/name change) (The Watering Hole of 2nd Ave Corp)

The Watering Hole? To douse the flames, perhaps? And will this mean another awning?
