*Everyday Chatter

We knew this would happen: Ruby's Bar has been given two weeks notice to get off the Coney Island boardwalk--so some meaningless crap can move in. [Gothamist]

Pics from Halloween Parades of yore. [IL]

Super secret underground, abandoned subway art gallery. Where is it? [Gothamist]

Sin Sin lounge is dismantled. [EVG]

The bedbugs are coming! The bedbugs are coming! And other NYC scares. [MBN]

Remembering what phone calls used to be like--not so long ago in another century. [NYT]

That really sucks about Ruby's. They're really going to ruin the boardwalk with shiny new places. I'm glad I went there a couple months ago. I'll probably never go to Coney Island again.

Renderings look like Pt. Pleasant crossed with Seaside Heights. Fine in their place, but not at Coney.

The more I continue to read about the demise of Coney, the more enraged I am becoming. Bye-bye, another piece of my childhood. And my parents' childhoods. And my grandparents'. And back until there was just an island called Coney, because it was overrun with rabbits, which I would much prefer to slick Eurotrash developers.
