There's a head on avenue AClint McMahon

Good morning, East Village.

Save The Lower East Side thinks that The Times piece about the changing of the Bowery is evidence of “journalistic fraud, and plain deceit,” since it doesn’t go into detail about the fight for 35 Cooper Square.

According to a Facebook message spotted by The Local, Runnin’ Scared, DNAinfo, and EV Grieve, John Penley and others involved in the Occupy Wall Street protests may camp out in Tompkins Square Park this weekend. Meanwhile, Bowery Boogie notices that gift shop Exit 9 posted a OWS schedule on its chalkboard.

City Room points out that on the MTA’s new subway map, an error has been fixed so that Tompkins Square Park correctly appears to the east of Avenue A.

EV Grieve reports that Village Scandal, the hat shop that is facing eviction, is having a 50 percent-off sale to pay for legal fees.

The Bowery Poetry Club will host a multi-poet “balagtasan,” which FilAm describes as a “philosophical rap battle,” about whether Filipinos should work abroad or not.

Jonathan Ames explains to the Post why he lives in Brooklyn these days: “It used to be that I walked around the East Village and went, ‘There’s someone I went to an artist colony with.’ But now, no oddball writer types are really left in Manhattan.”
