*Everyday Chatter

J.D. Salinger is gone. [NYT]

Help save the City Reliquary: they need"$60,000 in order to maintain its operations this year or they will shut their doors for good." You can go to their firefighter date auction to give support. [NYP]

Wrangling the wild cats of Coney Island. [ATZ] ...might they be members of Hijinx's murderous gang?

Kevin of FNY shares the good news via email that Ruby's Bar and more will be open at Coney this summer. Writes Ruby's, "From Beer Island to Gyro corner - every business is all ready confirmed to open for 2010. The city is the new landlord of the boardwalk side property. When the city took over form Sitt we were all ready confirmed along with Lola Staar returning to her spot next to Ruby's on the boardwalk."

An interesting window in Chelsea--giant cockroaches, a dog, Marilyn:


Enjoying sunlight and graffiti on Great Jones while it lasts. [EVG]

Remembering the Staten Island neighborhood of Linoleumville. [ENY]

Wall Street brokers, an "embattled minority" (?), hold a rally to save themselves, and threaten, "If someone in the middle of Minnesota says something bad about Wall Street, we will respond." [NYT]

Tenement storefronts come back to life at the museum. [BB]

The death of a hairdresser, a memorial to Miwa. [LC]
