The Day | If You Want to Destroy The Cube’s Sweater…

Olek does the AlamoScott Lynch

Good morning, East Village.

Sure enough, the Astor cube got stripped of its sweater yesterday. Luckily its installation was videotaped for posterity so we can remember the Alamo in crocheted form – Bowery Boogie has the footage.

On Untapped New York, “Downtown Doodler” Bernadette Moke goes on an Urban Design Week tour of the Bowery and offers up a history of the buildings complete with sketches.

Elsewhere on the Bowery, EV Grieve finds an online listing of crooner John Legend’s apartment at East Fourth Street. Amenities include a “landscaped building entrance, parking garage, roof deck and an exterior spa-swimming pool.”

Grieve also spots a flyer alerting residents of East Third Street between First and Second Avenues of a recent uptick in burglaries.

Community Board 2 has released its October calendar of meetings. Have a gander.

Finally, in case you missed it last week, Off The Grid has a nice look back at 19-23 St. Marks Place, which saw a mob shootout when it was Arlington Hall and an explosion on the dance floor when it was Electric Circus.
