The Day | Stuy Town Is in the East Village? Really?

Late Night EatsRachel Citron

Good morning, East Village.

The weekend is almost here, so why not start partying a little early? Cure Thrift Shop is celebrating its 3rd birthday today with a party at 111 East 12 Street. Proceeds from the $5 admission fee go toward diabetes research and get you access to snacks, drinks, and a raffle, as well as live music from Roosevelt Dime.

In entertainment news, DNAinfo reports that the production staff of the USA Network show “White Collar” disguised Cooper Union’s Foundation Hall as a hotel for a recent scene shoot.

Speaking of cable television, the Post gets inside the East Village walk-up that Constance Zimmer of “Entourage” shares with her husband, commercial director Russ Lamoureux. Fun fact: She went to school with Benicio del Toro.

And speaking of schools, EV Grieve notices signs indicating that a storefront on Avenue B between Third and Fourth Streets is going to be a third location of Gold Material Montessori School. Interested parents should check out the school’s tuition rate and application process.

Finally, the Observer pokes fun at Stuyvesant Town’s management company for advertising “Spacious Apartments in Manhattan’s East Village.” The Observer chides, “It’s not like they’re stealing a neighborhood with any authenticity to it in the first place, the East Village being a nome de terre created in the 1980s to polish the upper reaches of the Lower East Side (it took a while and Rudolf Giuliani).” Actually, the nome [sic] de terre was created in the 1960s, not the eighties. That’s a good five decades of “cachet,” thank you very much.
