Here’s Why East 10th Is the Rainiest Street in the City Right Now

Think its rainy near you? Not as rainy as it is on a block of East 10th Street (between Second and Third Avenues) that has been closed to traffic for the filming of a Comcast commercial. The Local stopped by just minutes ago and watched a high-grade sprinkler shower water onto one of the company’s trucks during one take. All very dramatic, but what’s a Comcast truck doing in the East Village? It’s about as fishy as a subway stop across from Veniero’s. Indeed a call to Comcast customer service confirms that Time Warner is the block’s cable provider. As if we didn’t know that. But who knows, maybe the folks at Comcast are hoping to pass the St. Mark’s Historic District off as brownstone Brooklyn?
