Good morning, East Village.

Last night, The Local reported from an Occupy Wall Street march that stopped at the former Charas/El Bohio building and ended at Tompkins Square Park. According to City Room, 12 were arrested: “Three men were charged with assault and one with criminal weapons possession, the police said. Most of the rest of those arrested were charged with disorderly conduct. Three of the 12 people arrested were women. One officer sustained an injured finger.” Gothamist has video footage of a couple of the arrests.

Per the sign above, Veselka is offering free pedicab service to its Bowery location during weekend brunch hours.

Someone who might want to know about this service: The man who posted the flyer above, announcing that his bike disappeared from 13th Street between Broadway and Fourth Avenue on Friday. Apparently it was a gift from grandma.

DNA Info finds that schools in the East Village have become more segregated after the city ended its diversity-based admissions preferences in 2007. Between 2004 and 2010, the East Village Community School’s white population grew while its black and Hispanic populations fell. Meanwhile, the trend was the reverse at other schools.

L magazine’s blog, The Measure, reports that a small fire broke out on the top floor of 20 St. Marks Place.

Forgotten New York strolls from Stuyvesant Square to Tompkins Square Park, uncovering some history on the way: “At East Eighth and Avenue B, the Children’s Aid Society Newsboys and Bootblacks Lodging House boasted Calvert Vaux as one of the co-builders – he was also the co-architect of Central and Prospect Parks.”

Speaking to The Wall Street Journal about The Standard East Village, Andre Balazs says, “The truth is I don’t know exactly where it’s going just yet.” He does know he wants to create a “cost-conscious, high-value hotel experience,” with rooms starting at $190: “By mid-fall it’ll be open differently, with an emphasis on public spaces. Good hotels are a center of their community, and you can’t be the center of a community if the person next door to you can’t sleep.”

The Times follows Michael Igyarto on his quest to hit the real estate trifecta in the East Village: “In order to get a nice place that wasn’t terribly expensive,” says the NYU law school student, “we had to go pretty far east. There was no way to accommodate mutually exclusive priorities of low cost, good location or great space. We could get two of the three.” Spoiler alert: Mr. Igyarto and his roommate eventually settle on a two-bedroom in a new building on 10th Street between Avenues C and D. It’s $2,895 a month plus a $5,211 broker’s fee.

The Journal talks to Joe Dobias about his new sandwich joint, JoeDough. And Diner’s Journal notes that he’s selling six-foot subs for the Super Bowl Sunday.
