The Day | Bowery Becomes Historic

The Salvation ArmyMichelle Rick

Good morning, East Village.

The Lo-Down and Bowery Boogie report that the Two Bridges Neighborhood Council and the Bowery Alliance of Neighbors have succeeded in getting the New York State Review Board to include the Bowery in the State Register of Historic Places. Now they’ll gun for the national register.

According to the Post, Andrew Hanson has pleaded not-guilty to stealing books from the New York Public Library and attempting to sell them to bookstores. As The Post reported earlier this month, he was nabbed by Donald Davis, the owner of East Village Books.

Also from the Post: Anthony Lindsey has been sentenced to 65 years in prison for three violent muggings in the East and West Village in Nov. and Dec. of 2008.

Ready to be thrown back? Dangerous Minds posts video from French filmmaker Marie Martine that shows the area around 11th Street and Avenue B circa 1983.

As St. Mark’s Bookshop continues to await word from Cooper Union, its plight gets some attention from the Associated Press and CBS New York.
