The Day | The East Village ‘Nightscape’

EV fall street2Gloria Chung

Good morning, East Village.

We’d like to encourage you to check out the exploration of liquor licensing issues in the neighborhood over at Capital. The piece is framed around the demise of Superdive and describes how the East Village has become “a nightscape” in which bar owners have clustered together in the neighborhood. “A century ago, that meant the creation of a Garment District,” the Capital piece reads. “Now it means the creation of a Party District.” It’s a piece that it well worth reading and it has already generated its share of discussion in the blogosphere.

In other neighborhood news, The Daily News has an interview with Thomas Grant, a volunteer at an East Village soup kitchen who blacked out and tumbled onto the path of a subway train Sunday before being rescued by another man on the platform.
