*Everyday Chatter

We got a note from the Anonymous who scribbled "No McNally" on the walls of Village Paper: "I'm just a local person who is sick to death of how this neighborhood has been f'd up. When I have a dog to walk, I also throw bags of poop into the doorways of Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren stores. Haven't had the opportunity lately."

More good stuff for fans of Max's Kansas City. [Stupefaction]

Is Pearl Paint about to vanish? [CR]

Grieve's readers offer some creative names for the new, rebranded Aces & 8s. [EVG]

Now you can buy an entire block of Canal Street, knock it down, and put up something glassy and depressing. [BB]

Remember when everybody hated the Twin Towers? [FP]

Throwing poop at Marc Jacobs doorways?

Passive aggressive. I approve!

EV Grieve said...

And we need a name for the poop thrower. Like, the Bleecker BM bandit. Or something.

oh, yes, a name is good. every vigilante who prowls by night needs a name. he (or she) is like Batman. The Batman of Bleecker?

The news about Pearl Paint makes me nervous. They consolidated the frame shop into the main store on Canal a while ago, but then suddenly stopped selling the supplies I use regularly. I keep going back, asking about it and they just tell me they are looking for another supplier....sounds fishy to me and this has been going on for 2-3 months. I hope they don't close.

The Scatman of Bleecker?

Moscot stopped taking union plans; no more Moscot glasses for me, sadly. Loved that place.
