Good morning, East Village.

More change to come for the East Village after ACME Bar & Grill, located on 9 Great Jones Place, announced that they were closing their doors yesterday. However, it’s only temporary, and after several confusing reports and confirmations, EV Grieve confirmed the news that ACME Bar & Grill is only closing for renovations.  The Cajun-style restaurant, which has been an East Village staple for 25 years, will be back in business in a few months.

Meanwhile, across the invisible border in Greenwich Village, New York University apparently postponed yesterday’s big reveal of the so-called “Greenwich Village 4,” the four large buildings planned around the core campus, including the as-of-right development which will replace the Morton Williams supermarket now that the “Silver Sliver” plan has bitten the dust.

As for today’s weather, grab your umbrella before you leave today.  It’s going to be a rainy day with a high of 56 degrees.
