The Day | From Disco to Momofuku

East Village, New York City 324Vivienne Gucwa

Good morning, East Village.

Enjoy an old school start to your day by following Sheryl Lee Ralph’s lead as she grooves through an almost unrecognizable East Village in her 1984 video for “In the Evening,” resurrected by Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York.

On a less upbeat note, EV Grieve has photographs of the makeshift “for rent” signs which have appeared in the windows of the theaters at 45 Bleecker, seized in mid-October by the landlord. Several shows previously in residence there also have notices taped to the doors redirecting their audiences to different venues.

Finally, readers with a sweet – okay, make that very sweet – tooth will surely be voting for their favorite soft serve in a poll posted by Momofuku Milk Bar. The rest of us can cheer from the sidelines. “Go, snickerdoodle!”
