The Day | On the Look Out

Phillip Kalantzis Cope

Good morning, East Village.

We begin today with a pair of in-case-you-missed-it items.

Two red-tailed hawks have taken to a nest on a ledge of NYU’s Bobst Library, just outside the 12th floor office of University president John Sexton. The Times has set up a live stream video where you can watch Violet, the mother named for the school’s official color and mascot, care for her eggs. Occasionally Bobby, the father named for Bobst library, stops by to check in. We put up a short post about the camera Wednesday afternoon.

We also learned Wednesday that the police are on the hunt for a suspect in a series of seven subway robberies, the latest of which occurred last week outside the Broadway-Lafayette subway station in the East Village.

In other neighborhood news, a new antique shop has opened on Second Street at Avenue A, Kabinett & Kramer. The one-room shop is the Manhattan outpost of an upstate store that has attracted celebrities such as Amy Sedaris and Anderson Cooper, the latter having liked the store so much he hired its owner to decorate his apartment across town.

Even as the number of applications for liquor licenses in the East Village continues to grow, a group of residents on East Fifth Street upset about noise are planning to fight proposals for a new pub on the block.
