*Everyday Chatter

Since the landlord raised the rent, what's coming to the landmark space once occupied by the Old Homestead's dining room? A chain. Le Pain Quotidien is coming and offering "authenticity":


You've got to love the way the no-cell policy is implemented at Soy Cafe on Greenwich Ave:


Take two glorious rides on the Third Avenue El of the 1950s. [Cyn]

Save our souls--Martha is on the Bowery. [BB]

Life above Cabin Down Below is pretty annoying. [EVG]

Looking back at the Gas House District and its demolition for StuyTown. [Blah]

Bedford Ave. businesses want the trendy food trucks gone. [BP]

Is the Glove Factory loft building also a part-time hostel? [NYS]

Meet the Characters of the Gowanus! [FIB]

The Bedford food truck wars reminds me of this post. Like something from a Calvino novel!

I wonder if Martha is going to do a segment on "Bowery-style" cuisine on her show.

So where did all the debris from the gashouse district demolition go?

Re: Soy Cafe - Glad someone is finally fighting back on the plague of people yapping on cellphones in line-ups.

The Old Homestead on 9th Avenue and 14th Street closed?

Jeremiah Moss said...

Re: The Old Homestead

So, can you still eat in there or is it take-out?
