Ray's has the best milkshake in the city. I couldn't pay my rent either and I needed a milkshake. This is depressing.

Thats the third or fourth subway that has tried to open in the west v. Can't imagine it will be there very long.

We have to do something for the beloved Ray! If everyone gave a small amount of money, maybe he could be saved.

@Anon...there's another Subway on 7th Ave just a block or two north of St Vincent's. Can't recall how long it's been there. The franchise owner of that store was surprised when I told him about another store opening nearby. He said he wasn't worried though because most of his customers come from the hospital
