The Day | More Photos and Video from May Day

Photos: Scott Lynch

Good morning, East Village.

Yesterday we spent 19 hours live-blogging May Day activities throughout the city: you can find our initial report here and our follow-up here. There was even a David Byrne cameo. Now a video of one of the arrests has popped up on YouTube (hat tip to Google Alerts). And above, here are Scott Lynch’s photos of Tom Morello’s “guitarmy” in Bryant Park and the festivities at Union Square.

Elsewhere: More Than Usual spots a swastika on the construction plywood at 51 Astor Place.

Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York discovers that sculptor Randy Hage has created a miniature version of Mars Bar.

Broadway World informs that Lisa Bielawa, the choirmaster of the Philip Glass and Robert Wilson opera “Einstein on the Beach,” will perform with other members of the chorus at the Stone on May 24.

Washington Square News reviews “Christopher Marlowe’s Chloroform Dreams” at Red Room and finds that cliches abound: “Katharine Sherman’s new play includes every convention of old detective movies, topped off with the tipped fedora on the hero’s head.”

The Times reviews “The Ash Girl,” a take on Cinderella that boasts “morbid turns, philosophical digressions and florid, often verselike syntax make it better suited to adults than to children.” It’s now playing at the Connelly Theater.

We’ve seen photos before, but here’s AOL Real Estate’s video of the East Village duplex penthouse where a $250,000 slide connects two floors.

Finally, residents of the Vancouver district that’s being renamed East Village aren’t all that happy about the change, according to a poll cited by The Vancouver Courier. “We have our own identity here, so why would we want to take on a name that very much sounds like it’s trying to be New York,” says one resident.
