*Everyday Chatter

Sucelt is gone. I had my last meal there last week, but with my freezer stuffed with Jehnny's beef empanadas, the love will go on a little longer. My last Sucelt arepa:


AMNY also visited La Taza de Oro. Without Sucelt, it's a last survivor from Chelsea's days as a center for Latin food. [AMNY]

Here comes the newest erection to rise above the Bowery, overshadowing the Salvation Army, which will probably turn into condos any day now. [Curbed]

Another repair service evicted--this time it's a tailor. In our disposable culture, why bother to stitch and fix the old when you can just buy new? [Pardon Me] [Lost City]
