After being rescued once, the Cheyenne Diner is back on the market again. Somebody re-save it! Too big to cross the East River, writes Michael Perlman, the Cheyenne is for sale "on the condition that it be transported off the property ASAP, or the diner will be demolished within the next few weeks." Interested? Contact the committee: firstname.lastname@example.org
The demolition of the Manhattanville section of Harlem is about to begin, as Columbia University gets ready to destroy, destroy, destroy. [QCrap]
Last November I wrote about the closing of Five Roses Pizza. Last week, a daughter of the original owner wrote in to The Villager to correct information. I thought her voice should also be heard here. She writes in her letter: "The fact is that the store’s current owner informed us that she was not going to continue running the store and that she would be closing. Since there was no discussion about future rent, her rent was not increased! She just decided to close." Upon the shop's closure, her family also displayed historic, personal photos in the window, as reported by EV Grieve.
